Hi All

Just wondered if this could be classed as the worst starter for a project car (given its likely value at the end) yet?

Apologies if I have offended anyone here, but was surprised it was viewed as a sensible restoration.

Peter,
What made me laugh was the comment "Prefer to sell as a complete car" when it's missing the bonnet engine and boot lid! would make a good source of spares though, is that the standard carburettor manifold?

Peter, I think you are being unduly pessimistic, after all the 'Concise Repair Manual' is included !!!!!!!!

The clock looks vaguely savable; if that were jigged up properly you could work outwards in all directions. Keep you busy over winter  Cheesy

Yes but, I note you did not qualify if you actually finished them though!!

The phrase that's missing is "no hidden problems".

The first (and as yet unrestored) Fulvia project I bought over 13 years ago was a bit like this. It has since been joined by a number of other "unstarted" projects purchased via eBay and which generally raised the average standard of the collection from that very low base.

But yes, if I wanted to restore a Fulvia I would not start from here.

Can anyone answer Brian's question re the manifold - with these things you hope it is "rare" but it usually turns out to be just "wrong"

No, it looks like a manifold for wider carbs such as webers or dellorto
