I gave it to an older fellow on gumtree. he has a morris minor and said the 1200 a12 was better than his version in some respects.

An awe inspiring build, beyond any I've ever seen. The US is particularly well set up for car modifications in general. Cheaper parts and plenty of engineering shops. I expect the ride would be a little firmer than the original Fairlady!

Ok thanks. My glovebox door does appear to have had a catch. The pictures show how the original operates thanks. I will try to make or find one

My glovebox catch has fallen out and I'm left with a hole and no way to secure the door. This is annoying and required for roadworthy apparently. does anyone have a fix for the lost catch? i can't even remember what was there!

thanks

For free is an A12 engine. I left it out in the weather and the cover came off so water has got in to the combustion chamber via spark plug holes. The head should be fine. I'm disgusted with my self because it was a newly reconditioned engine 10 years ago!!!
Anyway it's in Hackett, ACT. It would be great to see it up and running again, when i had it, it would rev smoothly up to 5000rpm and more but i didn't take it beyond that. I miss the old A12s.

Good photos, they show more accurately the proper colours used in the 70's. the blue for instance is more indigo than the pastel blue that is often used today. And the red resembles a Christmas decoration.

I'd be keen on the lower and upper bracket if you can make some up! The upper bracket in the pic isn't quite long enough to span both bonnet bolt holes.
You could sell a kit on ebay and make some $$

I have a round 'D' type badge. I'm just wondering what were the original colours for all the different sections/ borders?
