Thanks. Rebuilding the carbies soon as I clear a bench in the shed. The wife won't let me do it on the kitchen table. :(

Hi. Great looker. What colours? Do you know which beige and the interior? I know it is red and assume it is not brick red.

Yes there's a sticker in the wheel well that says Savannah Beige CLR.804

I don't know how to tell what kind of red the interior is unfortunately

Would you consider selling it? Sorry to ask,.

I had some grand plans for this, but after almost a year I've made diddly progress. I'm not giving it away, come and have a look and make me an offer. See Carsales /Gumtree for ballpark figures. 0405404830

I replaced the fuel lines, fuel pump and distributor this morning. Then tried to start it.

When I crank it, i'm getting pops out of both carbies but it just doesn't want to run.

I lined up the rotor button with no.1 cyl when the timing mark is visible in the hole. I triple checked the plug cables 1-4-3-2 going round.

Any ideas?

Rookie error. Distributor was 180deg out. Just had to rotate the leads. Purrs like a kitten and idles fine 😁 After 17 years 😂

'69, the best model year for Type 3,IMO. 12 volt, 4 stud wheels, early bumpers and lights and external fuel cap. Wiper arms are a one off year, splined shaft but mount in the same holes as early models. Try and find some matching hi back front seats (2 track) .

I have a passengers high back. Finding a match for it is proving difficult.

The fuel system is hooked up properly now so I took it for a drive... to the clothesline and back, 3 times. FWD and REV gears work. Yay!

Here it is idling with everything back in place:

how much are you asking for it?
