    New arrival-1975 Cherry 100A

    Hi, bagged this little cherry for a paltry 150! 1975, one lady owner.
    As you can see its got a rotten port wing, but luckily I know of a new one. Some nasty spots on the bottom door corners too. Other than that bodywork's straight.

    Sadly the colour code is no longer visible on the plate. Anyone familiar with datty paint codes of the 70s pls?

    More pics coming up shortly






    I now can say i have an A10, although not the flying A10(aka warthog) :mrgreen:

    Great find, sir. If this gets the same attention as your Crown then it'll shape up to be the nicest A10 around. :tu:

    yep prima; it was going to be scrapped. I'm feeling like i let a starving and shivering dog home, fed him, and giving him warm bedding etc..
    It does need some work, as you can see.
    and thanks for that link, I nailed its colour code :tu:

    started 'attacking' the interior. It has that cool vinyl floor carpet. And found parts of the underlay soaking wet. The culprit-



    the rest of the front floorboard is 100% clean

    nothing out of this world; tidying up the bodywork, a respray in its original colour, reupholster the front seats and a set of revolutions-thats all.
    Last but not least try to find a heater to fit-it didnt come with one :x

    Clean the engine bay up hellsa, paint the valve cover the engine block, shine the head up. Custom header and then a set of bike carbs. That would be so cool in that little thing.
