Does look very nice, didn't think a Viva would be able to pull off red that well but I've been proved wrong. Are the chunky Minilights the plan for it?

Hi Chris,
I know this car well,im the one who started it up for the Chris in Welling you got it from.
Felt the engine run really sweet,body was very good for year and if it had been 2 door and manual i would have been very tempted myself.
Colour reminds me of my 2300sl in late 70's--mine was flaminco red with black roof.
:goodluck: Terry
