New 242

Recommended Posts

Finally picked up a '79 242 DL today. Advertised as needing some work, but nothing major - and the benefits FAR outwieghed the risks. Freshly powder-coated Virgos, good tires, billsteins, jamex lowering springs, ss brake lines, iPd swaybars, blaupunkt audio, and TWO DOORS!

Fairly good paint, commandos and a flathood conversion, what more could I ask for? Here's some pics:

Not to bad, I think. All it needs right now is a fuel pump relay, head gasket and tags. Oh, and the R-Sport Cluster I fixed. Easy peasy, lemon squeasy. And then plans for a turbo engine shall commence. Mwahahahaha.

does this mean you'll be selling the 855R???

Ah, no. If anything I'll probably get ANOTHER 855/V70 (R if possible) so that this can be my project car.

Thanks for the kudos, plans are to basically +T this with a fresh 405 head I've got laying around, -Kjet +Megasquirt. I've got to ping the understudy and get some details on his fuel rail. :D Then maybe if I win the lottery I'll drop in a T6. Right. ;)
