A 1985 X1/9 VS restored to look like an early example from the 1970s.
Fully restored with a bare metal respray in 2007 and at the same time converted to 1300 style quarter bumpers front and rear. Painted Fiat Rialto blue, the car still presents in fantastic condition as it was fully zeibart rust proofed at the same time and kept in a heated garage when not in use. In 2015 the interior was restored with white leather interior trim, door cards and seats, which still look as-new. The car has 8 previous keepers on the log book and the MOT is valid until 11 May 2019. The manifold has recently been skimmed and a new choke cable installed for ease of starting.
ENGINE GEARBOX AND BRAKES
A new engine was rebuilt and rebored +40 with new pistons, rings a new big end and main bearings replaced. The head was pressure tested and skimmed, valves reground, ports polished and opened to suit a purpose made inlet manifold to go with a set of carburetors from a Kawasaki GS900 motorbike converted and jetted to suit.
A new stage one fast road camshaft was fitted, all valve clearances adjusted to suit. Whilst the engine was being rebuilt a new clutch was fitted, cambelt and waterpump replaced, a new oil pump, alternator and starter motor were also replaced. It was then fitted with crank position and throttle position senors, a programmable ECU, distributor-less ignition and a bespoke 4 into 1 stainless exhaust manifold and silencer. The car sounds terrific! Once the engine was in the car was set up on a rolling road and tuned to around 120bhp with plenty more to come. This engine has now covered 1300 miles
New discs pads and calipers were fitted at the same time.
The body presents in fantastic condition, the paint is still excellent with no dings or scrapes and the interior is spotless and unworn. The tyres look hardly worn and the wheels are completely unmarked. The pop-up lights work perfectly benefiting from one new motor, new diodes for both sides and new relays.
