Ok, here's an update about that 71 TI. Saw it yesterday, went for a drive. It is seriously fast! Has a 2 liter swap. However something is up with the car and I need advice. It says its a 1971 but:I wouldn't worry to much about a TI that's not all that original. Except for the very early cars, there was tons of TIs and Supers produced---so many (500k plus) that I don't think they'll ever be considered as rare as the GTVs and Spiders. Lots of TIs have been made to look like Supers w/ headlights, hood spears, instruments, etc. If tastefully carried out, I don't think that's bad thing at all. I'm a firm believer in "period modifications" so slipping a fast 2 liter into a Ti or Super just makes for an overall better drive. Keep us posted.
1. It has floor mounted pedals
2. air intake at base of windscreen is from series 1
3. grille is fake Super TI
4. Dash appears to be frankenstein of a Super and a Nuova Super
5. VIN AR+2237***
6. engine looks like AR01623+056037
How the heck can you have a 1971 chassis with low pedals? I'm worried that the car is a salvage or some sort of reconstruction. All of the other stuff, I can handle (no rust, fast motor).
