ive got a few actualy, the first one turned up a few houses down one day from a 69 barracuda fastback i was restoring for a preacher, and i "thought" it was an early volvo(right letter count), as it was a friend of his i walked over and realised it SHRANK the closer i got, after some talkin and his frustration in it, i traded a 80s mustang 5spd trans for it, a 58 kombi, got it running not long later but...lloyds make alfas look rust free any day of the week, the main body was solid but the chassis was basicly a spine, so it evolved twice, while hunting for trim and tidbits i came across a 57 kombi with a full roof sunroof, they didnt want to sell any parts alone but a truckload of parts and the car as a "lot" i think i paid 150$ and honestly i was willing to pay that just for the meat hook hood ornement id found in the boxes and wouldnt let go of, some years later i stumbled across a 58 coupe thats solid enough to bring back, traded 25 inch lcd tv/pc screen id gotten for free for it, an hour drive home and going over the car before unloading and the rear window falls out in my hands...to this day i have no idea how it didnt blow out on the way homeWhat year is your Lloyd? I remember those from the late '50s/ early 60s. A couple around town when I was a kid. Those showed up when Euro cars were introduced in the US, and a bunch of marques had to go thru the American taste test to see who lived and who did not make the cut. Beetles, Renault Dauphines, SAAB 94s, Borgwards, Lloyds, BMW Isettas, Messersmitts, Austins, Morris, and a ton of others. Love to see a pic of yours.
end plan is to finish up the eurosled 58 lloyd, restore the 57 with the alexander TS drivetrain from the sled so i have a "before and after" and then do something with the coupe, ive got a friend intrested in it
heres the 58 build
ive had several requests to start posting this here..but some of the hinting to what id been doing had stired up and ruffled enuf feathers to keep me from posting..so at the multiple requests from veric and randy...here it is in all its glory...if a mod thinks this needs to be elsewhere go for...
i love keeping the 2 kombis together for the "before and after" as its rather dramatic
