3k with no papers? Is the car his or someone elses that he's getting rid of? Why no papers in the first place?

It can be done if you use a Alfa 75 Twin Spark engine since this setup is same as the Alfetta with a rear gearbox. But this Berlina's with its original engine 1750 Twin Dellorto's is also a fun car. I tested one before i bought my Alfetta back in 2003 and I hit 220km/h at the North South Highway and taking corners with it was a breeze..couldn't believe in my eyes and feel that this car was so powerful... but that time student only mah..didnt have much budget to buy the Berlina so settled with Alfetta instead..
Oh and do you know it comes with a LSD gearbox...quite modern for those days eh
bravosx wrote:Well doesn't matter la. Question is - is it worth buying, restoring and what is the intention of use?
Damn Aron......you just did it! Bumperless!
That looks SO wicked! Holy shmoly....how cool would it be to see that flying around Sepang eh?
If you guys really wanna see the Berlina for a closer inspection, I can arrange it sometime next week for you

Don't know where you are based but you do realise Penampang's in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. Shame the seller didn't leave a contact no. as I'd be more than happy to go and view the car for you. Never knew there was an Impala here in K K!
The Lancia most probably started life as a 1.6 (maybe a Turbo, maybe not), then had bits of the 4WD added on over the years. The vendor states that it was registered in 1984 but the 4WD was only introduced in 1986, so don't get your hopes up too high. If I'm also not mistaken, the inner headlights for a 4WD is smaller than the outers, unlike those of the car in the ad.

struballs wrote:Hi guys,
I've just read through the whole thread, and have been lurking on the interesting find of the day thread for awhile, so I just wanted to say thank you. Reading about these finds made my afternoon. Its really quite amazing how some of these precious masterpieces have been left to rot, and saddens me when some of the owners don't want to sell their cars on to people who will care for them!
I'm a bit of a mudah junkie myself, checking the 1980 or older to 1989 section like a hawk daily, but its even more incredible what gems are lying around the workshops, etc! I've been looking for a project car for awhile now - dreaming of something American or Italian, but struggling to find the right car. Does anyone know of any neglected (or loved) muscle cars for sale for reasonable money? Chevy preferably, and pre 1973, but I'd be open to anything that might fit a V8. I found a web listing for a 1964 Impala 'Hardtop' at http://penampang.locanto.my/ID_11294904 ... mpang.html posted in Feb. Its a long shot, but does anyone know the owner or car? I tried contacting via email through the site with no success.
The Lancia Delta on mudah is very tempting to me. It has a strange mix of HF 4WD and 1.6 HT turbo going on, though. Headlights look to be HF 4WD units, and the listing says 2000cc (also a 4WD spec), but I don't think there were any RHD 4WD models. I guess it could have had a RHD conversion - the interior looks to be a 1.6 HF Turbo version. To add to the confusion, the front bumper is a 1.6 HF turbo unit - definitely repainted as the rubber bump strip was always black as far as I know. I have this irrational hope that its a 4WD unit. I havent called the seller yet to find out (I don't speak Malay, so I've got to arrange for a friend to call - probably tomorrow), but was wondering if anyone knows the history behind some of the older Lancias in Malaysia. Were/are there any 4WD models brought in, and any currently for sale? I've got my mind on a fairly big but specific project I'd like to undertake for something that I think would be unique, but would prefer not converting a FWD model to 4WD.

This was when we were on our way out of KL, to Perak, for the 2nd day of Hari Raya. I couldn't have been more than 10 I think. Despite the extensive accident damage, the car was able to continue on with the journey and complete the hari raya circuit for that year! Not sure what happened to it after we got back to KL, as it was replaced soon after by a Merc. Anyway, I'll always have a soft spot for the E23s as the car protected me and family from any grevious bodily harm. Thank you E23!
hello...where this car located?Serpent155 wrote:I'm going to CRC tomorrow, will mos def have a look under the hood!
This Ford Escort 1600 GT is for sale, needs work but can be so sweet! Car is located at Jemima Films KL, in the back, not sure what's the asking price though...
