The 1250CC engine was professionally rebuilt in 2007 now has the correct seals for modern gas, to 1 compression ratio, orted & polished heads, arger valves, istons and hotter cam. The engine is balanced and blue printed and theengines oiling system was also enhanced with better designed oil pump.

The car is still running the stock point system that I just replaced with new. The car also recently received, eplacement spark plugs wires, park plugs, ap and rotor. The transmission and rear end were professionally rebuilt in 2007 and shifts nicely and has no usual noises. The rear end was converted to the 4.3:1 rear end gearing that allows the car to maintain an acceptable RPM range and keep pace with modern freeway traffic.
