Is that a Series 1? If so, I guess I can’t say “another fine British Leyland product”. Very cool, regardless.
My dad was into “exotics” and I grew up with a number of foreign cars; I recall my parents looking at a 1974 2plus2 back in the late 70s (they didn’t buy it).
Dad and I built up one of these models around the same time:
Yes, Series 1, 3.8 for the aficionados out there.
Here’s my attempt at making images for a new car brochure of the day before I changed the wheels and suspension, maybe even before I put the overdrive in.
It wasn’t an easy car to camp with, but it looks cool.
That’s, !!!She Who Must be Obeyed!!! posing innocently but it’s a trap!
Looks like you found a place to get away.

Dude that’s awesome! Anyway you get back to nature’s a good way-
Paid for this today. Going to be a long wait for it to travel over to the UK from Cali, but, after 20-odd years, a few weeks is nothing.
I wanted a project car… and this one will be a project, but, believe it or not, it’s not as bad as it looks. The spec is right - grey interior, manual, Canadian speedo. The two things I’ve wanted to do was improve the interior - bring it up to the same spec as the pre-production prototypes before cost cutting did it’s work, and potentially look at changing the drivetrain. This car is a good candidate for both those things! I’d be interested to see what my options were for electrification in a couple of years time, but I’d be happy with a decent, european engine too.

Now, that’s a Car. -SGT
So you want to make that sucker electrical…?
Very cool, I know well what it is like to finally get something you have pined for for years.
A Doc Brown in Pasadena has a conversion kit that will make that that thing go 88 miles per hour!
Oh wow, that looks pretty clean. How stock is it?
Radir wheels on that? Same as the Batmobile I think. Regardless, very cool.
Somewhat Stock , power windows added as well as a night rider style dash ( which I don’t care for ) , rims are as mentioned 1960s style. Factory AC … 350 engine
Two and a half months later, and it’s finally with me.
Got a long way to go with this. The Trek projects might have to go on the backburner for a bit…
Great Scott !
