Land Rover Monthly - - [ebay Car Challenge SIIA] -

The sec­ond win­ner of the ebay Car Chal­lenge was Alex Mor­ris of Devon who took on the daunt­ing task of restor­ing a very rare 1967 right-hand drive Alfa Romeo Duetto.

This was Alex’s first restora­tion project and he made im­pres­sive progress. His first jobs were replacing the brake com­po­nents and sus­pen­sion, re­mov­ing the wiring loom, dash­board and steer­ing wheel.

Alex man­aged to get ahead of sched­ule, but af­ter care­fully re­pair­ing sec­tions of body­work he hit a ma­jor snag – sig­nif­i­cant cracks in the chas­sis.

Work­ing on the cen­tral frame of a caris some­thing only an ex­pe­ri­enced specialist can do, so Alex has had to put his restora­tion on hold whilst this work took place.

At the time of writ­ing he is ap­ply­ing the fin­ish­ing touches to his project.
