MOIS­TURE MIS­ERY

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

Check un­der­neath – even sound­look­ing un­der­seal may have been breached, har­bour­ing mois­ture and – ul­ti­mately – ter­mi­nal floor rot. Pay spe­cial at­ten­tion to the driver’s side footwell where the throt­tle pedal bolts to the floor; re­pairs here can cost any­thing from £200-1000 de­pend­ing on how bad things are. Bulk­head re­pairs are ex­pen­sive, and prob­lems are hard to spot from within the en­gine bay, so re­move the un­der-dash panels and front car­pets and look up be­hind the dash­board. Lastly, check the state of the rear chas­sis rails.
