Re: Hi all I am looking at buying

is it a permanent 4? the s is like a cloverleaf model
all i can say is look out for rot - once they start going it can be bad news
look round the filler cap, by the battery and coil, the inside of the wings where the bolts run along to fix it to the body and the rear anti roll bar plus the inside the boot. i bought a permanent 4 it looked pretty clean on the outside but after a detailed inspection it had rot in all those places or had already been welded
if you are going to get one pay the extra and get a good un it will save you lots of money and effort in the long run.

i love 33s

Not sure about the S, but there were 2, a QV 2wd drive version and the P4 4wd.

It will be worth doing the work. I still think the 33 is a beautiful car, and the performance is reasonable too (especially 16v models)...the brakes are crap though.
