good night, the car is in Mallorca, following the sale, if interested I can make a video, (I have none) the car has been practically unused. throughout the year. (Just put it up in order to maintain the battery). if you are really interested sure we understand the price, I have desire to sell the car, now almost bothers me.The documentation is Spanish and is current. if you want, tell me what you want to see in the video. thank you for your interest

good afternoon, this weekend. I am not in the house that I have the car. but then I can I make a small video.
The work I've done it myself, I bought the parts in different places like burton, qed. tony thompson. perhaps keep a note. but many new parts to the naked eye look like. Full line of stainless steel exhaust. front and rear coilovers. radiator. tires, water hoses. polyurethane bushings front and rear. new servo (take two) brake hoses, headlights (H4), rear lights. ball joints, brake pads and brake calipers gaskets . Rotoflex, dashboard, upholstery,sill members etc ...
This car was found in Switzerland, but is of American origin (hence has two servos, the seats have headrests and the speedometer in miles) was imported to Germany and was not enrolled there for 18 years, then imported it to Switzerland and there was also not enrolled for 5 more years. until I import it to Spain,
when I brought the engine was running, but only three cylinders had compression, and second gear scratch when the oil was hot, and the brakes were a bit blocked.
When disassembling the engine, found that it takes 85mm pistons, so I had to take the block to put liners. Also, Camshafts were quite scratched so I had to put new, (From burton, but can not remember the number, less than 300, of course).After repairs, has traveled about 5000km
has odd jobs pending, is to mount the solenoid of the headlights (now going with a manual valve), fit locks, and some other details,
the only part of the car that I have not touched the rear group (only changing oil) makes no noise, but I guess it would be wise to review ...
Spanish documentation has all right.
My phone number is (0034) 651 784 981. (I do not speak French, only a little English)

when I have the video. I send.

regards, john
