Remarks

Developed for use in Retro Rallies, endurance road events, navigation trials, etc. There are a number of options as to what the car could be used for; it could be brought back to a show car, a fast road car, an Appendix 'K' stage rally car, a modified rally class. The car appers to be straight and underneath is good. It was painted before I got it 12 years ago so there are some stone chips in the wheel arches. I have touched up a few rust spots here and there but no obvious rust holes anywhere that I can see.  

It never had FIA papers, but it would be eligible as an 'Appendix K' car with the addition of a bolt in cage, up to date seats/belts and some AVO updates.
