I have been able to find an early 99 for rallying, so maybe some of you will be happy to hear that my ’76 EMS is safe :).
I actually owned this car 10 years ago, i saved it and got it roadworthy and i’ve just bought it back from the guy i sold it to.
The seats are shot and the bodywork has tired paint, but no rot.
I don’t know when the serious work will start, but at least i have found a good shell.
1709cc engine with freewheel gearbox, i don’t think this will take to tuning very well :racesmile:

Perhaps some serious tweaking and installing an engine from a Triumph Dolomite Sprint? :angel: :jobbar: 🙂
I.I.R.C, the Dolomite had the engine installed the opposite way?18 september, 2010 kl. 18:16 #162642
Maybe a 2000cc Saab 16v big valve head on 45mm Jenvey throttle bodies would be better 😉18 september, 2010 kl. 20:17 #162645MartinDeltagare
Agree, only made an attempt to stick to the Triumph family 🙂 😉1 juni, 2011 kl. 17:39 #173008
It’s been sometime since i posted anything, but i have made some progress with the ’71 shell, i stripped it out and removed all of the underseal and soundproofing, i have today started removing brackets that will no longer be needed, all for the sake of weight reduction.
Before i started work on it i put together a chassis tilter, this made work so much easier and helps to carry out a much better job.
I used an old screwdriver to remove the underseal, i think with the underseal being old and brittle helped!
Underseal removed and original factory primer wiped down with white spirit.
Fuel tank area, just a few rough patches, no rot, just a bit in the boot corners, easy repair 🙂
