Modified Sud Sc

Re: how many suds on this site

Hi,

Green 1984 1.5 SC 3-door fitted with tuned 1.6 engine & uprated 33 / Sprint suspension / brakes. I am planning the occasional Trackday / sprint when I reckon everything has bedded-in as just finished mods.

Also 1.7 Sprint in bits, suspension in Sud.

Re: how many suds on this site

I'm just trying to think of all the 'chrome bumper' suds I know of:

There's a red one with plastic wheel arches and bigger wheels recently sold on a website from Brighton.

Theres the dark blue one at Red Motori (plus the two others he has got)

The converted later model in Ireland thats been on one of the Classic Cars website for months

There are the two I was parked next to at Brooklands Auto Italia this year (Red 1.5 and the well known met brown one)

The 1.3 one (advertised as owned by a poet) recently sold on a classic car website.

An apparently immaculate bright yellow 1.5 was sold by a dealer about 2 years ago.

The Trofeo (?) sold by Epping Motor Co about 4 years ago

Theres at least another red 1.5 on the Alfasud register.

Stephen Parry has sold a red one which is being fully rebuilt and he has at least one other low mileage restoration project

Thats 13 more....

Re: how many suds on this site

There's the smart (1982?) red 1.5 in Faversham Kent that was on Ebay a few weeks back.

I know these aren't on the forum but its good to know they are out there....

Re: how many suds on this site

I've got two:

1982 TiX
1984 Green Cloverleaf

Pat looking at your reg plate I used to own FKH 531Y, it was a silver Alfetta GTV now long since scrapped but must have been from the same garage or area as your Sud.

Re: how many suds on this site

Hi baldy:
Those front seats of yours look fabulous!!!!, and the red carpet really makes the interior look stunning!! The originals mine has is Recaro, wonder what make is yours? I just wish we had the 1.7 16V motors here, all we were lucky to get was the 1.5.

Re: how many suds on this site

One more - a 1981 TI (boot, single-carb, s.2 dash) now fitted with a period dealer supplied twin carb (40mm Weber) conversion kit and many useful or lurid tweaks (including a 'Hot Wheels' sticker and a bobble-head Jesus resembling my favoured mechanic, Fernando). Photos from the 2008 Auto Italia gathering in Canberra, Australia (see: www.autoitaliacanberra.com). My previous Sud (1982 4-door) is now cared for by a friend and runs a 1.7 Twin carb with extractors - limited ground clearance but good for 93 hp at the wheels and annoying v-8 drivers). Both cars had never rusted. Go Suds!

very nice car how did the s2 dash install go? it's something i have planned for my s3 so would be keen to know about any problems you found guess a bit of wiring change is needed but does everything else fit ok?
great car though, and sooo lucky to have a rust free environment, i'm just trying to stop mine rusting whilst i restore it

Hi all
Saw a black series 3? 5 door sud on the M6 yesterday (going the other way so no more info than that) with a lady driver. First sud I have seen in the UK for years outside of car events.

Had a conversation with Nick on the M5 back from cheltenham (at 80mph so may have been shouting !) and we decided that we would feel very venerable at that speed without the cage these days with even small cars weighing 1.3 tonnes.

Have we put our '83 ti in red + stickers down on the list by the way ?
Going very well after a visit to Dave at Mech Motorsports in Cheltenham. 130BHP 120flbs at 6300rpm. Needs cams to get more but very smooth curves so very responsive / drivable -Could actually consider as a daily drive in the summer now.
Will post graphs / photos / mpeg when have a spare 10 mins.
Did a ram pipes / no ram pipes comparison and worth 5 bhp & 4-6FLbs across most of rev range, so well worth it.
