So Right !!!!
I went to have another look yesterday afternoon !
Sorry to dissapoint most of you, but I'm going for the 75 in the end. Its just in such good condition it cant be ignored, plus its a 2.0 twin spark and the other PLUS PLUS PLUS PLUS - its rear wheel drive
The Sprint from a closer inspection, is wayyyyyyyyyy to rusted ! The rear pannels need changing, front wings as well. Front pillars when you open the doors are swallen and you feel the door is going to fall off
Front hood needs changing because there is a large amount of it that has rotted so much it fell off in the engine bay. Rear hatch very rusty as well...
The co-drivers door window was open during the years, probably because of a broken window mech. Because of that , and with added Cyprus burning sun and cloudy winters during the years, floor pannels partly gone, sills completely destroyed , interior has been eaten by rats , and the dashboard crumbles into pieces as soon as you touch it
Therefore, I put my hunger for the Sprint aside and asked for a price for the 75 that only needs an engine rebuild and a paint job
He was in two minds about selling it to me and didnt know what price to tell me because there is a story ( as always ) about this car.
A customer of his took this car to his garage about 6 years ago for repairs. He had repaired at his garage lots of stuff under the car, axles, bushes, brakes etc, but when it came to the engine, they found out that it needed a rebuild, so called the customer and told him. He told them not to finish the repairs and never showed up to pick the car up.
After so many years, Mr. Andreas took it to his house to store it together with so many others untill this guy showed up - but he never did.
He just wants the money for the parts that he used at the time, but he needs to call the previous owner again and get the ok from him before selling it to me !
Hopefully the previous owner will think that the car has been scrapped after so many years and doesnt want a lot of money for it.
Will know the price tag this week . Lets just hope he doesnt want an arm and a leg
