Spoilt by messy wiring, though it does have the Bosch Transistorised ignition kit.

Can't see the pipe routing but I'd go for an extra matrix piggy-backed onto the heater for extra cooling. I remember that someone in the UK did this using a Vauxhall Astra heater matrix. Car is in Spain I think and is black, not a very "cool" combination. Nice car and not overpriced considering that it has been covered up in a showroom since having a full rebuild in 2000. Ad quotes it as "Condition 2" but looks better than that to me.

That's sure, the car is lovely.
I didn't know the necessary of a oil cooler for this engine, beside the necessary of an improvement on the water cooler with electric fan or so, gives the engine hot fame.

Id go with the oil cooler theory with the pipes underneath and the fan because of the position(not in clean,cool air).
Very nice car though.

oooooo good one!

I hadn't thought of air con. There is no box like this fitted to the one recently advertised with air con but it may be a different model year? this one looks quite late - big indicator lights?

Air con?

It looks after market and has a fan on the front too so I suggest some kind of cooler - probably oil cooler but I can't see any hoses. the heater hoses look standard going in to the heater matrix.

The car also has electronic ignition by the look of it and external ballast for the coil.
