‘Original parts are be­com­ing hard to find’

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Living With Classics - PAUL DICKINSON DROOP SNOOT gROuP

‘Peo­ple used to mod­ify 1300s but most of them have dis­ap­peared, so the fo­cus is on the 2300. This en­gine is very sim­i­lar to the twin-cam slant-four Lo­tus 907 unit. Be­cause the 2300 has quite a few short­com­ings, and de­spite its rar­ity, lots of own­ers want to in­cor­po­rate up­grades to make it more re­li­able. The most pop­u­lar changes are def­i­nitely to the brak­ing sys­tem and fu­elling; most own­ers are hav­ing to make changes be­cause the original parts are now be­com­ing hard to find. droop­snoot.co.uk
