BUY­ING TIPS

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Classic Car Tours -

The twin-cam cylin­der head was unique to th­ese cars and with only 4500 or so pro­duced, parts can be hard to find and costly.

Beware worn syn­chros and jump­ing out of gear – parts for the Ge­trag five-speed ‘box are if any­thing even harder to ob­tain.

Check just about ev­ery­where for rust as lit­tle pro­tec­tion was pro­vided and it can kick off in any seam be­tween pan­els.

Given the age of th­ese, you should also check the qual­ity and in­tegrity of the in­evitable past re­pairs that have been done.

Re­place­ment in­te­rior and ex­te­rior trim is hard to find – apart from (luck­ily) HS de­cals and front air­dams, which the club can sup­ply.
