Now that is a cracking automobile, just look at that lovely upholstery. Very jealous.

Just a couple top tips about the 4A-F, make sure all the vacuum lines are in good order and leave the carb adjustments well alone, any and all adjustment will make it worse (ask me how I know).

I know, Japanese carbs, especially Nikki ones are temperamental if messed with! The carb actually looks really clean, perhaps replaced at some point.

Gr9...... Deffo smear up both those pressed arms (solid steel bar on a Corolla, same years) + lard up ALL steel pipes.. brake/fuel.

Deffo 'frittzie' on ToMM© >> be warned ;)

What's the PCD on these?

Internet suggests 5 x 100 but I only count 4 bolts 🤣

I'm sure it was someone on here (??) had an Estate.

He put wide 15" Renault steels (scrapyard cheepz) on... but you need a mounting ring/hubcentric :)

Threads are Ford..... I used stock Ford alloy sleeve nuts on ToMM©

I have a set of 14" Clio alloys in 'stock', so will probably put them on. Just need tyres.

That is stonking.

And very clean looking underneath.

Good save.

Dibs!

 

 

 

You're the first to officially claim dibs tbh...

Well worth keeping on top of the jobs that want doing as you’ll have a reliable car there. 

Yeah, I've decided it's sticking around for now.

It's so smooth and calm to drive.

Things that need doing:

Suspension top mounts - no movement but rubber is perished.

Tyres/ wheels - currently on 4 different 13" balloons.

Interior - trace a couple of trim rattles. Fix speakers. Get foam residue off dash. Replace sun visor that I snapped.

Bodywork - fix odd rust patch on rear door. Drivers mirror needs casing.

Engine - oil change

Cambelt was done at 10k ago, so that's a good thing.
