sprint project for sale (maybe!)
Hi I'm a new poster to this forum, although have been an occassional reader for a while.
I have a 1982 sprint trofeo under going long term restoration. Its been with me over ten years through one divorce and two house moves, however I'm (hopefully) moving house again soon, this time to a place with no garage so am considering parting with the sprint, and thought I'd see if theres any interest from folks on here before considering fleabay or breaking it for parts.
Most of the mechanical work has been done, it has a 1.7 twin carb engine from a 33, rebuilt with new belts, gaskets and very expensive professionally rebuilt carbs. Gearbox is ok, brakes, tank suspension all done.
The bodywork needs finishing, It has a new pair of front wings fitted, rust free doors, bonnet and tailgate. inner wings have been repaired as have rear inner wheel arches. Left to do is fit a good second hand rear panel (Hi Peter), and a n/s rear quarter panel (supplied).
Inside its not original trofeo - I've fitted a later dash as I didn't like the standard spec brown one, it has a red carpet and a set of leather seats which are currently beige & grey and I'd planned to recolour to red/grey or black/grey. The door cards need sorting but all the other trim is present.
I have two sets of stainless steel bumpers, three sets of alloys including the originals and some pepperpots. New rear lights, a rack full of spare electrical items, ancillaries,and all the glass
The car will obviously need a full respray but will be a cracking car for someone to finish off.
If anyones interested please PM me, and I can send some pics etc.
