Well Happy Buying tips for 33

Can anybody help me.

I am wanting to purchase a 33 fairly soon and don't really know what to look for. I'm after a 33P4. Cheers guys

Rust, rust and more rust. My last 33 looked quite clean, but when I took the skirts off the sills I found they were very corroded; I think this is particularly a problem on veloce models where a body kit was fitted after they were imported to UK as any holes drilled compromised the factory corrosion protection. Also check the jacking points. There is commonly bubbling around the filler cap; been told that this is because there is moisture holding material fitted on the inside.
