Hi all

#1 Post by IanC123 » Mon Mar 15, 2021 11:47 am

Newbie to the forum here considering taking on a project. Just wondered if one of my old cars has turned up here at all - Rover 420GSI turbo L341 YCC?

Thanks
Ian C

Turbos are rare but 'projects' aren't - you'll have a bit of choice no doubt :*laughs*

No, I can't lift the photos. I'm not on Facebook but this page is visible to all. Anyone who is on Facebook would also be able to click on the photo stream, but I can just see the 5 smaller images that come up in the advertisement body.

Thanks John, but that is the same view that Duncan and I had when we visited the FB page. Can't see the other 9 photos without a FB account.....

I went to see Ian Mann back in January and saw this 420GSI Turbo.

It's a nice original car, starting to look tired in a few common areas but overall its still very presentable.

Needs around £2K spending on it (cosmetic & mechanical work), and it will be an absolute minter.

Definitely a small project for the right person, Ian is a sound bloke too.

Thanks for the pics :wink3

Looks like a good straight example, ready for a little TLC and a show car in the making!

Quite rare in Flame Red, too: most 420 turbos seemed to have been metallic. And a later (94) model as well, with the Ash interior :cool
