The paint is newish, it was painted 12 years ago but always garaged and never driven, so that's why it looks good. The photos also hide alot of the poorly preped paint work,
I haven't driven it much and the tacho isn't connected yet (cable needs fixing), but from what i can tell, it pulls the car along quite nicely, it has the 41:8 (5.125:1) diff so gear changes are quick and the engine pulls evenly up through the rev range, to where ever i changed gear anyway. I have driven a 1750 and 2 litre too and i think you could only tell by looking at the speedo that was a smaller engine, everything else felt the same, same noise, same swift gear changes, same throttle response.
