Restoration
I spent the best part of 5 years completely rebuilding this car. I imported it from the US as a complete car. It wasn’t really a running car, but the engine would fire up.
Everything is as per factory spec with the following exceptions:
Brand new 5-speed gearbox
Zeus 4-pot aluminium calipers with vented discs at the front
Zeus aluminium calipers on the rear
Period Ansa centre exhaust option
Aluminium radiator
Mangoletsi carburettor linkage and pedal assembly
Customer alloy header tank
Numerous electrical upgrades

Still using the original Kelsey Hayes bellows brake servo - works great!
Still using the original Dynamo, copes perfectly
Still sitting on original rear springs and front torsion bars

Drove it to Italy and back last year - didn’t miss a beat for the whole journey - which was epic by the way!
