    That's really neat, I wouldn't touch the body if there's no bad rust, just drive it about a bit for the rest of the summer while having a think about what to do.

    I certainly wouldn't rip into it just yet, but it can be made into a great rod within the 8 points rules.

    Does need a small chop though :-)

    Cheers Guys, I have been thinking of doing subtle changes, like brake upgrades etc. and fancy putting a pinto in.

    a little update, I have decided to purchase a pinto engine, with 105e brakes all round. so I will now be looking for a type 9 box which my purchase is suited to. I will keep my poast going with pics as I begin the works.

    Good luck with that hunt for a Type 9 box. Not quite as cheap, or as available, as they once were. You might get one still attached to the Pinto engine.

    The chances of getting a pinto and type 9 in within 8 points are minimal . If you want to keep it 8 points you need a physically smaller set up such as 1256 or 1500 Spitfire and box.

    A tweaked Reliant Robin engine nad box will see a quick economical and well handling car.

    agreed, the engine and box would need to be mounted really high in the chassis to clear the crossmembers. not ideal. maybe look at an mx5 engine and box, much smaller and lighter than a pinto and type 9. much cheaper too.
