This is my car.I bought it in 03 shortly before I moved to the states. I just recently went back to Trinidad(my homeland) and my 120y is still in great shape. it does need some body work, carb rebuild, brake overhaul, battery and tires. I also want to swap in a 5 speed. Has an A15 and auto. Was originally running an A12.

This is how it looks now...

If you're gonna mod the engine you might want to consider swapping out the small radiator for something bigger. When I swapped my A12 for an A15 I got a bigger, recored radiator put in. Is it still easy to get parts for these cars in Trinidad? I live in Barbados and had sourced a set of tail lights and a bonnet from Trinidad a couple years ago.

Yeah its still easy to get parts for b310s in Trinidad...when i was there last month i got a carburetor and master cylinder from a scrap yard for free. when i go back i gotta get a new dashboard and parts for a 5 speed conversion. 5 speed are rare down there so im going to get one here in the usa and ship it over.

yeah well it'll definitely be cheaper to ship it from Trinidad than say the UK or Australia...Trinidad's closer to the US than those countries. That's why whenever i buy a 210 im going down there to get me some bumpers.I want to do the full conversion to make it look like mine...with the rear license plate relocated. the bumpers on my car are ok but they have paint,water stains and some little dents on them.

Wet sanding them with some fine grit sandpaper and then some polish would remove the paint and water stains. I plan to do that to mine before I put them back on my car.
