A 1979 KE50 arrived in my garage yesterda :lol:

It needs lots of €€€€s to put on the road again. Doors are rotten, sills need redoing, dash is torn, bumpers need straightening and endcaps. Weatherstrips need to be replaced obviously.

All suspension and braking parts need to be replaced after several years sitting abandoned in a garage. Even radiator and battery are missing, so its quite a long shot.

finding some difficulty in posting pics sorry
