    My 1977 X is going up on the block. No real issues here on this highly modified Sohc 1.9 stroker powered vehicle. I am selling it with the stock 1300 engine included and also stock bumpers. Car is equipped with:
    MWB small bumper conversion
    New VAS summer heat aluminum radiator
    MWB Koni single adjustable strut set.
    Factory air conditioning not operating at this time but all components to return it to service
    Campagnolo wheels with staggered Falken Ziex tires
    185/60 on front and 205/60 rear
    New high quality vinyl seats reupholstered professionally
    Engine has a long detailed built thread if you search 1.9 stroker. Lots of pics.
    Car has dynoed at 136whp and runs dual 40 dcnf carbs. Running it on sunoco 98 at the present
    Nice dry one owner California car until 5 years ago. Typical garage dings and a front right fender replacement in 82 due to what he referred to as a parking lot wreck. They did a nice job and looks like the rear fender flair had just a bit of bondo as well. Only rust is surface corrosion in battery box area from the wreck. Factory 4spd and car has done 127.8mph on gps.
    Also replaced the cooling pipes with custom stainless cooling pipes!

    Asking 14500.00 to start. Obo. PM with questions and additional pic requests. 20181201_171740.jpg

    Sounds like a sweet car, GLWTS.
    A question about the factory air. The controls are missing from the center console, was the AC specific center console replaced with the non-AC console? Also, are the factory AC components still attached to the 1300 engine?

    All a/c controls are in the center console! Look closely and you see the temp dial and the fan speed. They changed in 79 to sliders up above. The long water pump and a/c compressor are on the 1300! I had it working when I re engined the car!

    I will also include all parts for a 5spd swap including axles, spindles, shifter and linkage, and a good rebuildable 5spd core with gasket set and reverse gear.

    I am surprised you are selling the car Kent. Good luck with the sale.

    The big question: What's your next project to top this one? :)

    A "Rover V8" as in the folks that made Range Rovers? If so, one of the X1/9 guys here in STL was a tech at a Rover dealership in a former life. If he hasn't forgotten everything, he might be able to answer questions if you run into any issues. :)

    One and the same. 4.0. Buick engine from the 60's that British Leyland picked up. A Buick bell housing and t5 world class bolt on. Buick hot rod goodies fit and easy to work on. I've run buicks with the engine as well as rovers. The Buick was a 215 cid/3.5L and rover took it as far as 4.6L before they finished using it.

    Kent,

    Wow, does your car bring back memories! Mine was a '76 (I bought it new) also red on tan, and I did much the same as you. Campy 4-spokes, removed the bumpers, PBS 1600 stroker with BVH, dual 40 DCNFs, FAZA 45/85 cam, etc. (See my sig below.)

    I did most of my work on it in the late 1970s/early '80s. How did you get yours to 1900cc? Is the crank from a more modern FIAT? It must really fly. Nice job and GLWS!

    The 1.9 is a not so unique combo of euro parts that include a 1.6 punto block, tipo head with 39.5mm intake and 35mm exhaust valves, stilo 78.4mm stroke crankshaft, Pittatore 45/85 fast road cam, long tube header from VAS, sprint filter dual dcnf manifold and nos 40 dcnfs. An adjustable cam gear and a 1300 tensioner bracket and pulley . You then add a forged aftermarket con rod for more internal clearance and grind the oil gallery at the point of rod contact for proper clearance and order a custom set of pistons from either Iapel in Argentina or Simeone, Andre Vencl or one of the other fine xweb vendors as long as you get 27mm c/h and flush piston/block height or up to .025 above deck depending on head gasket thickness. You can use a set of 8.5:1 dish Wosner pistons and turbo the beast for 300hp!

    I do have parts to build a complete 1.9 if anyone is interested. Get your X some serious respect!

    This is indeed a very fine car with a arkable engine being sold by a fine gentleman.

    Hmmm parts for a complete 1.9 engine, now that is pretty interesting to someone with too many X’s already.

    Beautiful car! Good luck with the sale. I might be looking to get myself a Christmas present...What would you consider selling the 1.9 parts for?
