i am not a mechanic, I’ve not tracked the car but have given the snowdonia roads a good bit of sideways action, I have done around 3000 miles in my ownership mostly to Barmouth and back and therefore had it serviced and tuned by a recomemded pinto specialist in July so it sings as it should and never misses a beat.
It’s up for consideration/sale as i just won’t take it out in the rain or wet as it’s never been in these conditions. I would consider a px or swap
I love this car, as do the kids, I know I should tuck it away for the summer days but I want a toy that I can use all year round rain or shine with at least 2 more passengers
So, if you want a great car, powerful engine that’s been well looked after, has no issues, needs nothing and has had the money spent on it already to make it reliable then get in touch
Bodywork: few stone chips to rear arches, couple of light barely noticeable grazes on rear arches from the garage parking. Bonnet had a vent at some point that was filled but not noticeable until it’s off. Bonnet has been repaired as it has seen a low speed slide down the road the day I bought it hence it’s now black. Wouldn’t have been easy matching old paint but it works with black front arches. I have had the paint stored If you wanted to match the nose.
hood not tight in the pics as the additional support bars aren’t in and these pics are just so you can see it on
Nothing to hide with the car, I improve cars in my ownership. There is a local specialist service place we can book it in to for an inspection if someone wanted further peace of mind and if anything was found requiring attention I would have done for the sale.
