Modifications

Drivetrain
A mostly stock 1.9L currently shakes beneath it's hood. It's hooked up to a well tuned Webber carb that keeps it running every day. I'd eventually like to set it up with an electronic ignition system.
Interior
As with most things on this car, the interior is stock. I'm pretty sure the back seats are original, but I can't be certain about the front. The third gauge from the left is a working tachometer that I'm told came from a Manta.
Exterior
The first thing you'll notice is the flat black paint. Look a little harder and you'll notice it was applied with a paint roller. This is how I bought it and how it will stay until I can muster up enough funds to get it back to the original red that can be seen from the inside. The few good sized rust holes may not add to the appeal, but those will be fixed one day as well. The now-working flood lights sitting under the bumper are a hint of progress.
Audio
The radio works... sometimes.
Suspension
The front suspension was cut (not by me) without any thought put into the turning radius. My main goal at the moment is to replace it and undo this monumental mistake.
Wheel and Tire
It's wearing four no-stock rims, the origin of which I'm clueless about. Anyone with an idea is free to share it. I also have four stock rims with caps that came with the car.
