Is that Stratos Silver or Crtystal Green?

Looks in decent shape.

Didn't think they came with rear Wash/wipe, so I wonder if that was a 2litre option?
Mine was a 1600 and had steel rather than the four spokes.

Looking good. Has it still got the original interior? If you want to keep it A1, don't let sun get on the rear seat tops- they'll go pink.

over a year since i updated this so here goes.

i have been down the scrap yard and got a 5 speed from an old lazer.

got a new parcel shelf with supports and rear seat belts

Image

didn't like the speakers so changed it

Image

also got a stainless exhaust from a 2.8 for £20, going to fit these to my pinto.

Image

had a great time in the snow

Image

Image

Image

waxoyled it all

Image

also tinted the revers lights too.

Image

the car is currently off the road, but will soon once the brakes are fixed it will becoming my everyday car :)

i have the 5 speed to fit, ill fit an electronic ignition, some nice pepperpots, leds dash bulbs and the twin exhaust so should be a nice car to use everyday,

thanks

Paul.
