And another car project

No, the Triumph is not done, but when a friend of my Dad's saw this car, locally, for sale, I had to grab it. It all works. It just needs interior redone and all the old suspension bushings replaced, and the brakes figured out. It has none working, right now. Eventually, I will make it nice. New paint and all. For now, it's going to be made properly functional and safe to drive.

Back story. My Dad had one just like it from 1963 to 1975. I was born in '63. So for all of my life , until I was 12, that was our family car. Dad's was black, this one is supposed to be a dark or Navy Blue. The Volvo B18 motors are really bullet proof. Not big HP out of a 1.8 liter 4 , but one of these engines is the world record holder at 3 million miles. One rebuild at 635 thousand.

John I have a 1963 PV544 Sport. It is my next project as well after the 1978 Datsun 280Z. I don't know how to upload a picture on here.

You have to have the picture hosted and link to it.... or you send it to me , I throw it on the server, and I link to it in this thread. Do you know what version of the 1800 engine is in it ? The 18B had a high compression version. I think it had about 10-15% more HP.
