Take it apart
First Job is to take the original engine out.
Seems a shame as it still ran perfectly, and was the original but the car is far from original in other ways and 40 years of patches and repairs mean that it was never going to be an original concourse car. By undertaking this project we are giving it a new lease of life and keeping it on the road for many years to come.
The original engine, gearbox, fuel tank, sub frame and everything else from the windscreen forward has to come out/off.
The interior has also been removed to asses the condition of the floors, repair the rusted heater matrix and other localised areas of rust.
