This does fit the bill in many ways- looking for a nice auto as a winter, but is a bit nice for me really..

Ken that is fit and a steal at £800.
But with self shifter 1400cc and a car that is heavier than the front row of a slimming world clinic I would imagine that it accelerates like a continent.

 

I don't find the ex-CMS 340 vario particularly slow, and once wound up they trundle along quite nicely. I have surprised a few moderns on the country lanes in mine and it's great fun.

I would like another vario, maybe a 66 or a 440 next .. or possibly a metro ;)

 

GLWTS etc and if I didn't already have one ...

Cheers guys.

 

I spent a bit of time with the 340 today. The passenger door speaker wasn't working, I'd bought a couple of Vibe 4" speakers from Halfords and fitted one already to the drivers door card. Nice enough sound, in keeping with the simple set up tbh. The passenger one was removed and found to be connected to nothing whatsoever lol. Two speakers happily generating sound :)

 

Just did a bit more cleaning and refitted the rear view mirror.

 

All good!

I've had a few, I reckon the one you mean is the car that was auctioned at Brooklands a few years back.  If so, yes I had it.  8,000 miles on the clock and it was utterly brilliant to look at.  But OMG the noise.

Nice.

 

The noise is part of the whole vario experience. You get used to it and just turn up the radio (which I can do know cos better speakers and DAB!!!)

 

C'mon folks!

I might pop over at the weekend and have a look if that's ok mate.

What's the deal with the noise, isn't there diaphragms or whatnot that should keep the revs low at motorway speeds that weren't functioniong on that early gold one, or am I making that up?

What revs are we talking at 70mph (officer)?

It may be my car you are thinking of:

It is a 1977 model year car, manufactured in September 1976.  It's the earliest in the UK, and has the unique brown DAF interior.  As you can see, it's pretty brittle! The 1978 model year had some significant revisions, and 1979 even more so, to make it much more 'Volvo'.

 

It's a variomatic, which is all that was offered until the 1979 model year.

Mr 95 quid you have a flurry of pm's.

 

Yeah, Saturday is best mate if you want to pop over and do some old car licking.

 

The noise is just a vario thing. The trick with these is to floor it until you get to the desired speed then lift your foot off the gas slightly so the revs reduce but your speed is retained.

 

There is an alleged diaphragm issue on my Daf 66 but to be honest, it trundled along quite happily. Who knows.

Do it right, and you can actually accelerate whilst the revs decrease.

These will also go as fast backwards as they will forwards. If that's not a challenge for someone to rise to I don't know what is.

As much of a challenge as the apocryphal belief that 2CVs cannot be rolled; my brother disproved this, albeit with the aid of a gravel-strewn road and an inconveniently placed ditch/field interface. The 2CV lived on despite acquiring a bend in the chassis.

Gooner appeals but a bit too modern for scraping under the associated classic policy barrier perhaps?

:(

 

Oh, just to clarify............. if any swappage does occur, orp/x for that matter.

 

The 340 is indeed in North London but t'other vehicle would need to grace the presence of The Barn which is just off the A414 (Ongar Rd) near Chelmsford. It's only about 30 mins from where I live.

 

It would make my life a lot easier re: tax, insurance and so on for the meantime.

 

Thanks for your understanding.
