I originally bought as a rolling shell with no engine or gearbox and spent nearly a year getting it back on the road- a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
Dry stored for ten years until being recommissioned with a thorough overhaul, bills for nearly £20,000 and quite a few hours on the internet trying to figure out how to mate it all together. Many thanks to Martyn Rogers on the DDK forum for help and advice.
Received a performance upgrade to 3.0 with a recently rebuilt SC engine and rebuilt 915 gearbox, professionally done to a high standard.
Further upgrades included:- SC front struts, new Carrera discs, new Carrera callipers,SC drive shafts, rebuilt pedal box, new master cylinder and braided brake hoses. Hydraulic chain tensioners. New gearchange coupler, new linkage bushes, new alternator.
The floor pan is original and unwelded as are the sills, kidney bowls and B posts. The original sound deadening material was still in excellent condition. Only the front pan had been repaired some years ago. The door bottoms are all original and and rust free.
The shell was comfirmed to be in exceptional rust free condition and was painted to a high standard in Swartz Black in line with it's hotrod credentials. New bumper deco trims, door trims and side trims
The body seals were replaced. The body cavities have been Dinitrol injected and the body waxoiled for everyday use.
Newly reconditioned genuine Fuchs 6 and 7" x15's to cope with the extra torque, new tyres, Fuchs spare.
New heat exchangers and stainless sports exhaust.
Original standard Recaro seats, new door cards, new carpets. Blaupunkt frankfurt.
Fitted with a genuine early 38cm RS type steering wheel.
The 3.0 made this a really nice car with a bit of extra go compared to even the power of an S but to me was just not the real thing, so it had to go.
