No this really is the nuts!, It's the 1970 London - Mexico World Cup Rally car, Full of WANT!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but weren't all Maxis meant to be hatchback?

This I understand, the Ambassador weighed more than the Princess to get the rigidity back; but did Macdroit mention what bodyshell it used (OK, probably Landcrab panels) and how the bootlid was made? Presumably by hand.

I don't think so, very early Maxi's had a conventional boot, I used to service one in the late 1970s, it was just a normal car, nothing special !

I thought the big maxi tagline was 5 doors 5 seats and 5 gears! I am certain they were a hatch from day one.

I suspect they may have welded up the hatch and fitted an 1800 bootlid (or similar) to give the shell a bit more strength - not that they really needed it.

Not on a Maxi it wasn't. I'm looking for the pics showing it mid-build, but the shell was built especially on the rally car.

http://www.austinmax...axi/history.htm "The car was new from stem to stern, it had a new engine and transmission (5 speed gearbox), new body and layout (5 door vehicle with fold down seats). The only thing that wasn't new were the doors which belonged to the 1800 series." I suspect someone is getting their Maxis muddled up with their Landcrabs? ;)

Rod/b, thank you Sah, you are a leg end! Saloon configuration would have added ridgidity, and also a sealed bulkhead to isolate the fuel tank. The bonus of this is that dust from rough roads would also be less likely to get into the cabin.

These are pretty rare nowadays arent they. I love the 130bhp engines in em. A mate got one when we were at Uni, he had it for a while then sold it and got a 'valver', I thought the first one was more impressive TBH.

http://cgi.ebay.co.u... ... 0392898988

Yes I'd LOVE another R16TX?

This one?

Which has a fooked engine and requires a complete respray?

And then have to pay for the spares?

And pay a grand for it?

No - I'd rather look for a real one on Leboncoin annd then walk over to France-naked-in this weather-to buy it.

Sorry - 16s are rare and worth a bit in decent condition - as are the parts. I know, I've quite a bit of R16 experience. All of which tells me that a grand for this shit heap is taking the piss. Mildly amusing registration though :D

If the house purchase I'd been trying to sort out had gone through I am pretty sure something new would have ended up on it's drive or in the garage with all this stuff about..

We dont know what work it needs for MOT?

Seeing as the place selling it is 'Egham MOT Centre', something seems a little suspect.

..Obviously they've called it a 'ROBIN RELIANT' in the spiel, an AS favourite.
