German barn find Croatian rebuild

Recommended Posts

In 2012 i bought a le mans green 2.0 mk1. In a barn outside Zagreb originally from germany. 2 door. Rock solid with 2.0 pinto. Grand sum of 1000 pounds. I now live in croatia and decided i wanted an RS replica. Well the originals a fortune. 

Since then i have spent 16k on parts and its still not turned a wheel. I have spent the last 5 years in kuwait so have had no real time to work on it. 

I finally found recaros for it so had the front and back seats redone by Alldrige trimming in dark brown beta cloth. 

European 6 dial dash. Yes i bought the wrong one first time round. Had the car professionally polished and stripes added. Team dynamic 15" alloys and loads more performace parts. 

I have now embarked on an engine rebuild. Again performance parts. 

Originally i have stayed with original arch but now decided bubble arch. Hey why not. So they are in the post from Germany. 

The one and only missing part now is a good back end. English with slipper. Preferably a 2.8s rear end. We will wait and see. So attached are a few photos. Any questions welcomed.

I have a question:

How are you going to fit that massive engine in the engine bay?!?! 😋


Seriously, though; very nice.

Is there a reason you're going for such a tall diff?
