after i sold my first model A, i missed it so much that i just had to have another one.
i found a 1971 1.9 Rallye nearby, with a broken rear axle.
this is what it looked like after some cleaning, ofcourse i dident get the ats
when a bought the car it was under a meter of snow so i had to dig it out and started with some serious cleaning. i also bought a new differensial.
then the differensial was replaced with a lsd, and the car got some new rims. these are compomotive cxn 9*16 / 8*16 with magnesium center.
more to come =)
then suddenly the headlights turned yellow :p
after a few weeks with the new-old rims the front rims cracked in a hole in the road
so i sent them to a weld chop and they fixed them. i also painted the "close to" original stripes on the side of the car
then the frontrims where finally back on
the winter came and i got tired of all the small things i didnt like with the car so i started the restoration, its basicly ready for sandblasting, i just have to wait to the snow dissapers
meanwhile i began to sand and polish the comps. they also got a new color to match the new color the car will get.
somewhere(i guess in the 80's) the car was painted red under, and cowered in white bodyshuts, beautiful
cut out some rust, and replaced the sheet metal.
i also bought some new parts
hydraulic handbrake and steering quickener
i swapped the 1.9 for a 2.0s and replaced the crank with a 2.2. so i have 2197ccm that wil be fed with 4x40mm yamaha r1 carbs
a new steering wheel, and made a hub from and old opel sr hub.
and some new rims
i got them so cheap that a just had to have them :P
