Hi Everyone, my name is Harry and have just acquired a rot box of a viva hc estate ... why i don't know !! i saw it on ebay and it brought back memories of my youth having had 2 of them and also passing my test in one... a cas eof heart ruling the head and wallet although i only paid £700 for it... reg No. is UOD 961J anyone know it !!

Anyway i have had to put a home made floor in, bulkhead repairs inner sills, repairs to bottom corners of windscreen, tops of tailgate/ rear strut, inner wings, outer sills still to do and spare wheel housing and same at the opposite side, ...
Its is running well having had a recon engine and box !! and fibreglass front wings.... brakes and suspension still to check.

On the plus side, the guy had a spare car, a total rot box but complete only prob is it's a 4 door saloon but i gave him £200 as i thought most of the spares will fit???

Hopefully some of you guys will be able to help me out when i get stuck !!!!

Blimey blast from the past, I donated that to a mate in Leeds 10 years ago.... along with a fully rebuilt engine... it was at the time of donation best described as a long term project !!! I think she sold it for scrap last year, so you must of bought it off the scrap man?

Thanks for that info ......Your not kidding about a long term project but hopefully not long before she is back on the road again, the engine sounds sweet as a nut, .... do you have any more history about her ?

The kid i bought it of lived on Belle Isle in Leeds, are they all your stickers in the back windows !!!!!
