I just saw this one.New listing. Seems nice. No connection.
Did it say what carb is installed? I didn't read the ad. Anyway, the new DFEV I put on the 124 sedan had no return line, but did have a "bowl vent" port that was attached to the fuel vent system. Maybe this X has a similar set up? Or not?I notice the fuel return line is plumed into the vapor system.
Hagerty is showing the "affordable classics" (sub $30k) are slowly rising, while the more premium classics trend downward.It is nice. I hope this is a sign that ours will be going up. Now, the drawback to that will be the parts also going up in price.
I had better finish restoring Gary’s X1/9 in a hurry...lol
I can ask a friend of mine to get me in touch with the owner, I have met him a couple of times but don’t really know him. KarlI'll confess to cutting the door cards in mine shortly after buying it new in '76. I had ordered it with a Blaupunkt Frankfurt AM/FM radio and as I recall there weren't a lot of good options for where to mount decent speakers. As Karl points out, they were considered just average production cars and most of us were doing things like that.
Karl, it sounds like you're pretty familiar with this car. Do you know any more specifics about the engine build? Hi-comp pistons, which cam, etc?
Being a pre-1976, this car is smog exempt in CA. Looks very tastefully done.
