I have a Pageant Blue Dolomite 1850HL auto for sale. Smart colour and about the best combination in the Dolomite non-Sprint world re: engine and gearbox. The 1850 really suits badermatic transmission. Being the HL means it has the 4 headlights and posher interior.
Interior is black, velour seats are in decent condition. Front parcel shelf has been modified to take speakers and looks pretty good. Usual combo of wood and so on, funky dials as you would expect.
Engine starts and runs well, twin carb setup. The exhaust needs to be removed and fitted properly.
Autobox needs to have a drain and refill of fresh fluid.
The car needs bodywork sorting. The lower front valance is toast and I will remove that for ease of fitment of a suitable replacement panel. The top of the T panel on the O/S needs work too. The Dolomite Club panels are a one piece thing with the top and lower sections anyway.
The doors are pretty much okay and only minor rectification is needed there. Wings are good too. Inner wings and suspension turrets all look bloody solid.
The boot floor needs repairing, again the Dolomite Club does the panel.
Jacking points/sills will need work, again sills are available.
Boot lid will need tidying up and there are other bits and bobs on the bodywork. Bonnet is good as is the roof panel.
Repairs on these cars are pretty straightforward, I've done them all on previous cars and if I can do them, then anyone can.
The car is shod with decent tyres and is fitted with Sprint alloys which once given a wipe over are nice. They don't lose air either. Brake system is fine.
I will get some piccies over the next day or so. I have started to strip the front end down and I will endeavour to continue that as much as a I can.
The value of the small Triumphs is finally starting to rise, after bloody years of not doing anything major. They will never get into the blue oval level of price stupidity. Sprints especially are going for a fair wad but that was always the case anyway.
Price will be around the £1650 mark.
Location is North London and a Turkish lunch or dinner will be included in the deal.
Piccies to follow.
