I bought this oldie about 6 months ago off a friend who originally bought it from a guy in Norwich. Only 2 owners father & son and now me !!!

He wanted to take it on as a project but was struggling to locate parts etc..

I did him a deal and part ex it with a KE70 Estate.....

Anyway it is under restoration now approx 3 months...

Looking forward to seeing it on the road before the end of the year !!! :thumbsup:

Follow its restoration under this link !!!

I've always wanted a really old rolla like that!!!

How much would it set me back for one with a good engine but mild body-work?

Theres not a lot of them around, but I saw one recently on Ebay which went for £500, but did need a full restoration as it had been parked up for over 10 years in a shed..

Yeah, there is only 2 i have ever seen. and i like to think my one was a solid engine never skipped a beat on me.

would not like to do a full resto as i wasted far too much time on my one, dont wanna go down that route again! :lol:

pics of my new project will be up shortly

plus with the laws getting tight, soon they wont allow carbs and no cat conveter's so no point i guess.

Long time since an update but here goes:- Went today Monday 10May10

Windscreen area all done with fresh new metal, inner arches & underneath been re-sorted out.

Primered and sunroof area all treated with Rustproof & unfortunately the Plan was to cover it and get rid of the sunroof, but proving difficult..

Possible will be in paint in next 7-10 days.. :-)

Hi, it's already been scrapped, that post was made a long time ago. Talk to AE_92, he has a few tailgates up for grabs.
