Here are a few interior shots. I believe it's all original. Check out the storage cubbyhole on the back shelf!

Under the bonnet - even the plug leads looked like original! The washer bottle was crumbling to the touch so replaced that!

A couple of other curiosities: hi-tech (for mid-80s) computer alarm was once fitted. There is a light in the fusebox but not in the glove box - does that mean you go to the fusebox more than the glovebox?? 🤔

Absolutely love it mate. The ultimate '80s. You need to fit a car phone.

Car looks great! Well done. Interestingly, from what I can see, the front seats look more like my 1986 GTV seats than my 1989 75 seats. I wonder if that is the case or just the angle the photo is taken from?

Secondly, I've never seen that interior fabric used - are you sure it's original? It's in awesome condition nonetheless!
