Yeah she looks pretty rough to me. A lot of butchering has gone on there. You are behind the eightball straight away due to the unoriginality of the thing, however some alfisti don't mind a 1750 or 2000 donk in a car that was originally a 1300 or a 1600.

So I guess its up to the individual, my preferance would be for the the original unit to go in, however as that car stands I would be tempted to buy it just for the engine and for any compatiable bits if any that I might be able to use on either of my cars and sell the shell on to someone looking for a body.

I wonder how the engine is ? The dash looks almost perfect, not that I need one as I bought a perfect s2 dash on ebay 2 years ago for bugger all, it came complete with all the trim, and another set of gauges, so I am happy. Can't tell from the shots if the seats are 1750 s1 or s2 or otherwise, however I do need a good rear seat back section for my 1750 so that could work. The door card on the LH side looks very good too.

Ah I am dreaming I already have three sportscars and only one of them drives. I gotta be nuts

Btw if anyone has a good unsplit tan s2 1750 rear seat back section I would be very intrested as mine is badly split. Also chasing a pair of door cards in Tan that are in good shape. Anyone ? Anyone ? Bueller ? Bueller ?
