WHY?

People always seem to have the time to start these 'works of art...............but, mysteriously, 'have no time to complete'/ 'too many projects' when selling! :roll: I rather suspect that it would have been just as cheap & no more time consuming to rebuild the coupe...!! :w

McQueen Esq.used as a pitbike during the filming of 'Le Mans' in 1970 - not running due to lack of spark. Very original wi...

se5a for sale OFFERS considered

I'm sorry to hear that your health has not been so good & that you're having to sell your lovely 5a........... I don't suppose you'd consider an exchange for a smart, 'electric' blue Honda Civic Sport, circa 2005, would you - high mileage but well-maintained & runs very nicely........The only clue t...

Wheels specifications

I have run my SE5 with a mish-mash of GTE steel wheels.......probably a mixture of SE5, 5a & 6-series: some have been ventilated. I had 4 new tubeless tyres fitted by a local expert & there was no talk of them only being suitable for tubes only. I don't think tubes were specified when the cars were ...

Correct SE5 Wiper Drive gear ????

It can be the drag caused by seizing wheelboxes, or whatever they're called - nightmare job to replace - certainly on an SE5. My wipers gave up the ghost a year or two back - the driver's wiper spindle was incredibly hard to turn. The workshop manual says 4-6lbs. of 'pull' (I think!).. but when the ...
