An excellent 1275 engine, 70 psi oil pressure, 155-160 psi compression in every cylinder, no smoke, rebuilt transmission, new Old English White paint (in base coat/clear coat acrylic...over faded older paint....but no rust), hand wet sanded/buffed, with all new red (with white piping) interior, good top and tonneau, really superb floor with no visible rust, good original chrome, great running and driving car.
What fun.......I wouldn't expect 90 mph cruising but for 60-75 AND a lot of fun 'round town, as nice a small English sports car as exists. The 1275cc engine gives very lively performance.
Go earlier in a Sprite, smaller engine and drum brakes....go later and the cars suffer with a padded dash and less power. All in all, a lot of fun for the size, the performance, and the money.
