ENGINE 2.7-litre straight-six TIME OWNED Since May 2009 You often see the term 'unfinished project' mentioned in an advert - usually followed by 'easy restoration' and 'have all parts to finish'.

My long-term project car Christine, the Rover P6 3500S that's been in the magazine for as long as I have, is now up for sale as an unfinished project. Back to the...

Bond Db4 Up For Sale

This one-owner 1962 Aston Martin DB4 was due to be auctioned by Bonhams just after we went to press. The car was bought by a special effects designer who worked at Pinewood Studios. It served as a test mule for the James Bond film Goldfinger. Delays in getting a DB5 from the factory led to producer Cubby Broccoli roping it in to be measured up for the various gadgets that would be fitted to Sean Connery's car. The DB4 was consigned to a garage in 1974, where it's remained since. It's estimated...

Cm Says

Wendy and Mark are to be congratulated for getting this car back on the road, especially considering it was their first restoration. The car threw up all sorts of unexpected problems but they were determined to see it through and the end results speak for themselves. Doing almost all the work at home saved them a lot of money and ensured it was done to the correct standard. Sharing the work between them kept their enthusiasm levels high. HZD

Kiss goodbye to door shell tinworm with a quality repair for this common rust trap area. WORDS AND PHOTOGRAPHY BY ROB MARSHALL Car doors are not complicated structures. However, because most types consist of an outer skin of metal sheet that's crimped to a frame, water traps are inbuilt. This makes internal rusting inevitable, especially if the car's stood outside for a long period of time. Any deterioration is almost certain to be more extensive beyond what's visible. Even though door skins...

French Fancy

The much-maligned Matra Rancho is a rare but practical load-lugger. Designed by Anionis Volanis (who also penned the Matra Bagheera and Renault Espace), the Rancho was based on the commercial version of the Simca 1100, using its front wings and cab on a stretched chassis. Bodywork aft of the doors was fibreglass and polyester. Ground clearance was increased and a sump guard fitted. Matra wanted to make a Range Rover rival, but without a thirsty V8. Ranchos came with the 1442cc engine from the...

Hints And Tips

Replacement parts are not always identical so check them carefully before you begin dismantling components. Aftermarket track rod ends can be longer or shorter than those originally fitted so bear this in mind if you're hoping to fit them according to any measurements taken while the old items were fitted. Measure the overall length from the centre of the track rod end to a fixed mark on the track rod itself. This overall length is your rough guide for fitting the new items. However, ensure you...

Italians Take Over Bristol

April's Auto Italia event in Bristol saw a wide range of classics take to the streets of the Old City. Mixed in with modern Lamborghinis and Ferraris were established classics such as the Alfa Spider, exotica in the shape of the De Tomaso Pantera, and more unusual models such as an Alfa Junior Zagato. Cars and bikes filled Corn Street, with models from many more clubs spreading out into the surrounding side roads. Regular 'sound-offs' were held, with owners encouraged to rev their engines. The...

Production ends after 234,208 four-door saloons, 359,918 two-doors, and 73,197 estates. The top edge of the padded dashboard can crack after prolonged exposure to sunlight. Later cars seem to suffer more than earlier ones. Replacing the panel isn't easy, either, and new ones tend to be left-hand drive only. You'll therefore have to try sourcing the best secondhand one you can. The Amazon's interior is stylish but not luxurious. The 'carpets' are in fact large rubber mats, although some owners...

The Jaguar Heritage element of the sale saw more than 30 examples of the marque on offer. The top seller was a 1974 E-type S3 Roadster at 43,594, while a 1958 XK150 DHC went for 39,124.

Water getting in through the window seals will make its way out via the door bottom. It's a well-known rust spot, and doors are becoming increasingly hard to find. Check the condition of the chrome. Stainless-steel bumpers are available but they don't look as good. Each bumper is made of five sections - replacing them is expensive. Perhaps the biggest weak point on any Amazon in terms of corrosion. They're double-skinned, so water gets trapped. Repairs are difficult because of the styling in...

Brake fluid is hygroscopic - it absorbs moisture, reducing its effectiveness. Remove as much old fluid from the reservoir as possible using a syringe or similar. Top up with fresh fluid and pump through as if bleeding the brakes, but continue until dean fluid comes through. Repeat on all four corners, remembering to replenish the reservoir regularly. A self-bleed kit aids solo bleeding or brake fluid replacement. Attached to the bleed nipple, a vacuum is created by the pump. Use an 8mm spanner...

ENGINE 3.5-litre V8 TIME OWNED Three years As Drive It Day approached, I was keen to get either Rover working for a road run I was booked on. Recent form -coupled with my wife's desire to go to work that night - and my expectation that the breakdown services would be busier than usual that day meant we took the ever-reliable MR2. The non-retracting pop-up headlight fault was traced to a dodgy relay. A f 6 replacement from eBay sorted it. To make it a bit more presentable, I tidied up the front...

Su Carburettors

Our easy guide to what they do, how they do it, and how to look after them. The carburettor controls the fuel air mixture that's fed into the engine. The advantage of the SU setup is that it uses a very simple system to be able to do this under various engine loads and throttle positions. Instead of limiting the airflow, the choke mechanism on SU carbs moves the jet away from the needle - which lets more fuel in. The position of the jet can be manually adjusted via a nut at the bottom of the...

O Most doors are equipped with a rubber seal, which locates within a channel attached to the door frame. Remove it carefully, and note how it's secured to the door. Finally, store it with the removed interior trim. O Don't forget to inspect within the door's cavity for any obvious rusting. Also, check for the presence of anti-rust wax, which will not only present a fire risk when welding but could also affect the quality of your repair. Scrape any evident product away. 1 Unbolt the door from...

Wear arid tear to steering and suspension components is inevitable. They should therefore be checked regularly to identify faults before they fail with potentially dangerous results. The work carried out here is the result of a pre-MOT check while fitting a new exhaust system to pass the test. Finding worn components before the MOT tester does buys you more time than the free retest window usually allows. It can also remove the pressure of making a car roadworthy in a short space of time....

Many classics use plastic lenses to cover interior courtesy lights. Years of use can leave them looking dull and tired. You may not be able to save a badly cracked lens, but this method will reduce the appearance of surface crazing and small scratches will be filled. It also restores a shine to the lens. There's no reason you can't use this method for indicator lenses or dashboard gauges too. If you're not happy with the result, you can buff the polish to a shine or simply repeat the process....

People often talk about the 'halo effect' that one model has on the rest of a manufacturer's output. The Integrale, for example, once did it for Lancia in the same way that the quattro did for Audi. It boosts the image of the whole marque. But it can also have a negative impact. Take the Porsche 911. For much too long now, people have bleated on about how the fabled six-pot is the only 'real' Porsche. They've become blind to the talents of great cars such as the 928, 968, and most of all the...

National stereotypes can be misleading when buying a car. It's easy to assume German cars will be reliable, Italian ones rusty and French ones complicated. Not all are strictly true, but if Swedish cars were to be labelled 'sturdy', you could justifiably point to the Volvo Amazon as proof. But that would sell this impressive car short. Sturdy implies that it's worthy but lacking in character, which is not the case here. The Amazon's timeless styling and undeniable class give it an enduring...

Wendy Hogarth has a photo from the late 1960s of herself and her brother with their dad's Vauxhall Cresta PA. The car was scrapped but I always treasured the pic and wanted a Cresta, she remembers. Wendy's husband Mark was equally keen and found a PA on eBay, but it was too expensive. By chance, a friend bought the car but discovered it needed a lot of work. The couple bought the Cresta and planned to drive it, just doing little jobs as required. But the Vauxhall had other ideas The door came...

Cordless drills have evolved rapidly in recent years. New technology and developments in rechargeable batteries have catapulted cordless drills forward to the point where they are now able to replace the more-traditional corded mains-powered drills for most applications. This is great news for us enthusiasts who might not have access to mains electricity at our garage or lock-up. The lack of a trailing cable and reduced chances of electrocution are big bonuses working outdoors on a car. Compact...

Undoubtedly add a certain ye ne sars guoi to the whole experience, but - aided by a 356 performance exhaust - Paul's car still sounds pretty good. It might be an air-cooled flat-four, but any similarity, aural or otherwise, with the humble VW Beetle ends there. Paul's in no doubt as to the 912's worth. The handling's tricky on the early 911, he says. The price difference isn't worth it. The balance is better on the 912, and it's cheaper to run and maintain because it's less complicated. People...
