Fantastic pics. Had the pleasure of owning 2 in my "youth" early/mid 80's TPT326M red/silver and HRP937N Purple with a black vinyl roof! used to polish it weekly with shoe polish. Happy memories. Amazing cars, and if I could get my hand on a decent one now i'd have it! A real wander down memory lane, thanks for posting Ian
Very sad that we can remember the registrations from all those years ago..... however my two were white 1.6GL SKD148T kept that until saw the “professionals” type the 2.0s but sadly can’t recall the plate on that . Always lusted after the 2.8 Brooklands
Rubbish handling cars but with the flares and hair we were a million dollars😂😂 Happy days
The first was a 2.0 litre V4 (think it was the engine from the old Corsair, not the F-4U!) and the second was a 3 litre V6 Essex engine.
As an aside, that V6 engine found it's way into an old military LandRover Lightweight, the purists really took the hump but it was an "interesting" machine! Only problem with the V6 lump I seem to remember was it chewed up timing gears a bit too frequently but it was a whole lot more reliable than the Rover (Buick derived?) V8 unit.
