Here are a few pics of Brian,
a tatty but fairly solid and unmolested 1975,1256cc HC,
He was left parked outside for 3-4 years.
The plan is a quick,cheep and cheerful tidy up,
and respray useing some left over paint,possibly two-tone.
Trying to get everything sorted for around €300.
I've spent €100 on him so far.

Oh,and Brian was free :wink:

Hah - your photos just reminded me that my airfilter housing is on back to front. The intake is sitting over the dizzy instead of the exhaust.

Looks like a nice car to tidy up.
