    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?

    Maybe a 2000cc Saab 16v big valve head on 45mm Jenvey throttle bodies would be better 😉


    Agree, only made an attempt to stick to the Triumph family 🙂 😉

    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 🙂
