Bonjour Herve

On 7012 we have a 4 inch manifold from Mini Sport and it fits nice. Also tried a 6 inch but it doesent fit in our car. As chassis 7012 suggest this is also a mk3 so I would expect a 4 inch is optimum for your car too! The carb is a 45DCOE.

Thanks Joergen, I will check. One of my concern is I don't install a Weber Carb because my engine came from a british open (I bought it like that). Perhaps one day i will change the engine but for the moment, I prefere restaure the body & have good brakes, suspension...
I will have a look on 4 inches, perhaps it could solve my problem.

I will post photo as soon as i have return from the guy who repares the body.

Hello Herve,
Looks like it has had a large life and has had quite a heavy shunt in the front.
Doesn't look like it would be too difficult to put right, but if the front is like that guess that all of the metal work is pretty well corroded.
Like you say when done should be able to last another 50 years.
Please keep us updated of the progress of the restoration.
Regards
Gary

Welcom John,
Saw your car on the FB page, another one saved from the undergrowth, perhaps Joost will post some photos of his hedge find adventure to give you a bit of encouragement.
