‘74 DS Resto


Might not be too bad once you cleaned it all up - they always look horrible at first. 😬👍. Was it using a lot of oil?
I only had her briefly before parking and pulling her apart, it ran well and but had an oil leak.
I think the leak may have been less than the top ups…
The sight under the rocker cover was quite confronting
Anyhow, I’ll apply lots of old rags and elbow grease and see how it comes up…

Frank at Headspec in Clayton did mine. Besides it taking forever (3months of pestering) he did a good job (well, I hope so, haven’t run the car yet, but it looked good - cost was about $1000).

He put in new valve seats and guides, welded up the water galleries that were corroded, skimmed and tested.
