    I take better photos!

    $13K two months ago.
    needs suspension rebuild front and rear-IMO.
    Clutch iffy-IMO
    Engine sound strong- looks good-IMO.
    Overall-nice looking car
    Does not appear to have Pedro-ized.
    I had 15 minute inspection with it.
    Being sold for divorce purposes

    I'd buy it.

    I thought that you said there was a car with Weber's on the island. So this is it.....

    Well, I know that you're not buying it, so who else wants a really southern car???

    Point made concerning Tinster's auto mechanic knowledge.

    I thought triple carbs on a Triumph were a Weber set-up.

    I wish we had stumbled upon THIS nice car 2 1/2 year ago
    instead of the Pedro-ized, broke down bucket of bolts we
    purchased. I'd be clocking miles in the twisty mountain
    roads if we did!

    From what I can see of the engine, that is a nice installation.

    But donor in which direction, I ask.

    Other than those nice looking triple carbs,
    EVERYTHING in my Crypt Car is in better condition
    and nothing needs to be rebuilt.

    And I do know that car been RODE REAL HARD
    to red line often!

    That's what they were made to do.
    Mine goes to redline regularly.
    No point having it there otherwise...
