you guys got somethings better....like 2.6 fire arrows :(, and the decent donked corolla's from the 70's :cry:

at some stage i want to fit my 4G32 1.6 from the lancer in it(thats how they ran these in the early 70's in Australia)
or a rotary as i have a 12a and box in the shed.

just waiting for the rain to finish so i can do some rust repairs(in the middle of a drought,few yrs now, i decide to fix the car and what happens.... :roll: )

A rotary Colt Matt, now there's an interesting thought :D Wouldn't have been done too many times before. Mate, I'm getting excited looking at a Colt with disc brakes, that's just an SS thing?

I think aluminum drums would cure your desire for disks quite well.

Can do these up front too. I have alloy drums all around on one of my Elva Couriers.

had some more progress on the little car.
had the motor/box out to fix some oil leaks only to discover that this is one of the easiest cars i have ever worked on.

new clutch bearing supplied and fitted for $18 and found out that Suzuki Vitari exhaust flange gaskets are only 1mm out on the stud holes(no after market gaskets are left for these)

the only big job left is to do the bonnet in matte green, does any one have a pic of an early Colt, Galant, Lancer rally car(in color)???? say pre 1972 with a green bonnet???

MATT :wink:

opps double post on them adds, they are from 1970 SS(top of the range)
a non SS puts out around 50hp, the SS 74hp from the same motor.

back in the day were SS meant more than a badge
twin SU carbie's, better cam profile, better gear box and diff ratio's for a top speed of close to 100mph compared to the 70mph of the F model. and the SS got a 40l fuel tank
the brouchors are still avalible if you search the net.

well i have had a small set back with this Colt........the mastercylinder has failed, it leaked all on the drivers floor.

i am thinking it is because it doesn't get driven and the fluid never gets hot as the reason behind this problem

Image

new cups for it on friday
