Intrigued as to what happened to this car.  Would love it to come up for roffle again, as I was ferried to school for a couple of years back in the mid-80's in one almost identical to this and would love to experience driving one.

Don't be intrigued. Somewhere in this thread, there is a plan to change the head gasket on it this very weekend. http://autoshite.com...e-in-our-field/

The good news was the team removed the engine and took the head off it in September.

 

The bad news is the liners are low and ruffgezzer thinks simply replacing the head gasket with not last very long. 

 

To rebuild the engine is going to cost a fair amount so my preference is simply to pop a secondhand one in, the problem is finding one. I do has a spare of unknown condition with the drop gears missing from Gogentley, but I need to remove the head to inspect it. It looks like it has been sitting around for a while now and why was it removed.

 

There is no cover where the car is located so I guess it will be spring before anything happens with it.
