So I bought the car back, paid the unpaid four years licence fee (ouch!) and started on this 1967 Imp Caliornians restoration.
I have since found out just 2600 or so were made, of those maybe 55 to 60 are left? this one came off the Rootes Car Co assembly line at the Linwood factory in Scotland February 3rd 1967 and was an export model sent to Mozambique.
The car has its original engine, the Vin plate and all numbers match, the engine is still on its original 875cc bore pistons also.
Easy work? well the above front end took me three weeks and at this stage I am far from finshed!
It may be for sale.
