• These were not particularly good cars, but pretty much anything halfway attractive, pre-smog, and without rust holes bigger than an iPhone is worth some money these days, and this one is at least de-bumperable.

    Get those Capris while they're still affordable.

    Anyone seen a decent Austin Marina lately? No, neither have I.

    I've mused over the idea of a Triumph Dolomite as a good home for a Saab B234T motor. Wouldn't have to start off as a Sprint, but it would need to be LHD. And it's probably easier to find one than an Austin Marina.

  • Dear Daily… You obviously don't do your homework. The documentation is correct as a one owner (The tittle has never been issued to anyone else since new). The documentation that was in the ad that you obviously did not spend time to read as you clearly would have seen it listed thousands spent to make the car road worthy prior to the sale but you were to quick to cut and past only the pictures and not the details. You wanted your own version apparently and come across a little but hurt about the selling price going as far as to ask a question if the car is really worth this premium. Again you failed to look at the details of the auction and see there are multiple people fighting to get their hands on it. You cant even get the simple facts correct like how many horsepower an 18rc has and overstate that as some sort of fact as if you had done some homework for some reason. (Its 97 HP by the way at 5500 RPM) It is about time these cars gain the fame and value as such icons of the era like the Datsun 510's and 240's, RX2 and 3's and VW notchbacks and 15 window busses. Spend less time on the Nintendo Playstation and try to get more into the details of the blog you are creating.

    • A mistake of fact (if any) re horsepower on a 40+ year old car is one thing. But a car sold three times in less than a year is going to sound like flipping to most of us, and no amount of hair-splitting re the name on the "tittle" will unflip it.

      We have seen more than our share of "resale red" paint work and other sad indelicacies. Take care of urgent needs, but otherwise leave it unmolested, give it a simple cleanup, be straight-up with the story, and make a fair profit, and no one here or on any other enthusiast site will ever grumble.
