New here - Sutton Coldfield based, venturing out from the VW world of motoring into something a bit more British.
So on Sunday we had the pleasure of driving to Leeds to pick up our 1300, won on eBay by my dad a couple weeks back. Around 50k on the clock, not in concourse condition but seems to run nicely. I haven't been able to drive it myself just yet as we had a bit of a mess about with the insurance but all sorted now so I will take it for a spin this weekend. Here's a pic shortly after we got home;
If anybody is able to identify the paint code for this car please let me know - I think the sticker has gone walkies.
Dad used to work for a Ford dealer as a parts manager so knows the CVH motor inside out, but neither of us have any familiarity with the rest of the car - so i'm sure i'll be on here a lot asking questions. So far I have managed to put together the following list of things i'd like to sort over the next month or so.
- Fuel leak - suspect lines - if anybody is able to tell me the internal diameter please, that would be great.
Door locks tricky to operate
Dad said it was making some funny noises from the rear on the way back, investigation required
Front bumper & headlight panel poor fitment (headlights work fine with panel removed - looks to be a poor repair)
Steering column shroud interferes with switchgear
Ignition cut-off switch install
Radio antenna missing
Seats require new foam inserts
