- P26L XC70 D5 and a ton of crap
No, the blame belongs in Washington, whether on the desk of the President who signed the bill into law or in the offices of those corrupt congresscritters who came up with and then voted for the bill. Gee, I wonder what they all have in common?Spectre, keep in mind the stupid owners are just as much to blame as the executives that put the C4C into action. Nobody forced them to trade the things in, they did that on their own stupid accord. Perhaps the dealer could have offered them the same money in trade in to avoid them going to C4C as well. Try as you might, you can't place all the blame on the president you get to live with.
I got it in California, body is rust free, I have no time to play with it.
The engine is race ready. It has Borgo 10.5:1 compression pistons, hot and high cams, low duration.
The head was built by ADRIA. It has new timing chains.
The crank and rods are balanced and polished and have new bearings. The oil ways in the crank have been tapped and set srews inserted as an alternative to the usual hammer-in type aluminum plugs that sometimes fall out.
The gearbox is freshly rebuilt by ADRIA.
The headers are from Alfa Ricambi and are steel with thermal conductive wrap.
It has Weber 40dcoe carbs with lots of aeroquip hoses and fittings.
The cooling sytem is different than usual but can easily be replaced with original. It has an aeroquip fitting where the water pump would be and an electric pump moves the coolant. This allows for no pulleys or belts on the engine.
It has remote mounted oil filter and cooler.
It comes with an extra set of Ricambi suspension springs.
It has spare glass for all except front. Lexan rear and sides.
The dashboard is very thin and light carbon fibre. It resembles the original but is more of a racing type.
The wheels are CROMODORA. I think I may have 2 of the original steel wheels as well.
It has 69' rearend in it and there is also a limited slip- complete with axles and rotors/calipers.
There is also an assortment of trim parts and small parts.
It has racing aluminum flywheel.
It has many logo frames and trim parts- like light frames, door trim etc. There really is too much to list.
The bonnet is fibre glass and painted with the car.I have steel hood also.
Bothers me to no end when they say "rust free" and there's clearly rust in the floorpans. Sure, it's not really bad hole in the floor rust, but it's still rust for cripes sake! How hard is it to prime or even rust seal over the floorpans while you have the carpet out?
Well, it's still repairable, right? This IS New England.Bothers me to no end when they say "rust free" and there's clearly rust in the floorpans.
