Project - Black Marina coupe


This is the first marina that I acquired. I got it through work and saved it from being scraped.
The coupe is a 1971 1.3 super deluxe the gearbox was noisy and lacked syncromesh on 1st and 2nd and 3rd sounded like a milk float with a full load. It also originally had 145/13 tyres and went where it wanted to go! The first thing I did was find some wider tyres. I had some 185/70/13 kicking about so they went on and transformed the handling, It now goes where I want it to! lol. I bought a gearbox of ebay, many thanks to ben clayton - It is now smooth and quiet to drive.
