Totally different to the 156, no ABS, power steering etc etc ;) Came flooding back after half hour in her though :) Taking it easy at the mo, will photgraph the engine rebuild sheet in a bit, thats interesting reading. Suspension is lush, handles well and less harsh than the 156 :)

You got quite a rare car there Nick The body kits are like Hen's teeth so make sure you keep that on. Had one the same some years ago and a sportwagon both on carbs and 1.7's. Great fun and simple to work on.

Hi Nick, - good luck with the car, I wish I could have kept it but just not practical, but its obviously gone to a good home ! Bet it sounds good with the carb top filters ! - its the best handling 33 I driven, enjoy it.

Very, very nice. I had a white E plate cloverleaf veloce years ago, had the Zender body kit that wasn't quite as deep as yours. I'm getting all misty eyed!! :D
