BUY­ING TIPS

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

If you want the ul­ti­mate Evo 2 model you have to like blue-black as all but two of the 502 built were de­liv­ered in that colour.

Main rust checks are: below rear screen; in­side arch lips be­hind aero pan­els; jack­ing points; in­ner wings; boot floor.

Whin­ing and un­usual noises from the diff are not un­com­mon on th­ese but it can be ex­pen­sive to fix.

The quick-ra­tio steer­ing rack puts ex­tra strain on the sys­tem so check the pump and pipework for fluid leaks.

Wa­ter from leaky sun­roofs can run down in­side A-pil­lars caus­ing dam­age that’s un­seen un­til se­ri­ous. Sniff for damp and beware fogged win­dows.
