Hi guys!

I'm restoring this c130 laurel butaketsu and need a right side fender and a front plate.

All the best,

I have bought a coupe grill for it. It looks fine with the sedan grill, but since it's so rare i want to keep it original.
The car is not that bad. It will take some time and money, but i think i can end up with a very good result.

I'm pretty sure I have a Swedish classic car magazine somewhere which has an article on your super cool green C130 on those rare Momo alloys...
What's the plan with owning two? His and Hers? :wink:

You probably got. The owner before me in Sweden who has a classic car shop was interviewed.

My thought was to keep one completely original (the green one) and the second (black one) that needs restoration as a sgx-replica with L28 and so on...

In Dubai?

It was sold 2 new HT's in Norway. Mine are imported from Sweden. So, they are very rare like everywhere ;)

Sounds like a very cool plan! :tu:
That's kind of what I've done with my BMW 02's...
Anyway, best of luck with the build - I'll certainly be following it closely.
Oh, and please spoil us with some more pics of your beautiful green C130! 8)
