    Is there meant to be a cover on that flywheel??

    Only thing I'm not keen on is the roof gutter delete at the back. Guessing it was done as part of a rust repair in that area
    cheers,

    Yes.... The clutch cover plate is missing. The whole engine bay is a bit of a dog's breakfast. Whoever did it included the R8/10 trailing arms but you can't see how they were secured.

    I'd not noticed that. Very odd. You'd want to have a very good look at that car..... I'll flick it around the 4CV Register and see whether someone knows it.

    Hopefully the crate of 'extra nuts and bolts' left over from every repair are included with the sale.

    Hi John, if you look forward of the hoist horizontal cross beam, you can see the trailing arm mounting. looks like angle iron maybe
    Another unusual thing is combining the trailing arms with the original fuel tank position!
    cheers,

    Phew!!

    Personally, I might just give this one a miss but, as ever with these things, it may be a good project car for someone who wants it.
