#1166 french red SS1

Post by Wannig » Mon Apr 02, 2012 6:26 pm

Let me introduce to you #1166.

It's a 1987 1600 Red SS1.

It should be at home in a few weeks. :D

Looks good! :D
Also seems rather strange looking at that LHD engine compartment, which looks so familiar, and yet not familiar at all!

Looks like a lovely car, very clean under the bonnet!

I hope the whole rest of the car looks like the engine bay.
The dashboard and the door panels were painted in black.
The seats have been reconditioned in white... With red inserts, I don't really like the interior...

Hmm, the black is ok if it is well done.
White seats are rather 'voyant' (je trouve pas le mot en Anglais!) and not at all practical.
But the car looks really good.
