Charming Channel Island 1300FWD

Model: Filed in: News, Workshop

Direct from Guernsey, this charming 1300FWD settled in nicely in our workshop.

The years by the sea hadn’t been kind to the 60’s steel in this charming saloon, and we repaired rot in a large number of places. Panels are scarce for the 1300s, and we fabricated some we couldn’t source but the marvellous Dolomite Owner’s Club came to the rescue several times.

In addition to body and paint the engine also required a full reconditioning. The early FWD gearbox and diff were in remarkably good condition.

Resplendent in Laurel, she’s looking great and is now back in the channel islands.
