The second instalment of Project Pit hopes to bring some warmth to your chilly Winter blues. Exciting projects will entice us, and motivate us to get to work before the summer show season.
Last month’s edition featured some rather rare beasts. Alas, let the show go on.
Excavated from its dry grave, from which it has laid since 1995, this Saab 99 needs to feel more than a slight dash of TLC. Based in Fife, Scotland, this ancient Saab will require many electrical issues to be sorted, besides the perishable goods. Fear not, as the green machine does run (See video for proof) and comes complete with some spare parts included, all for £850.retro Japanese car enthusiast. Potential buyers should collect it from Derbyshire for scrap value, at £150. Everyone loves the Citroen 2CV. A definitive French classic, which spent most of its life trundling around southern France, until becoming garage-bound in the 1980’s. A British buyer imported it to the UK two years ago, where the tin snail has stood dormant since. With just 65,000kms (40,000 miles) on the clock, this early 2CV should be snapped up immediately. The owner asks for £2,999. Not absolutely terrible considering the ever-appreciating value of those little Citroens. Plus, tax and MOT exempt…just saying. Ford Cortina, but the Germans had something else going on entirely. The Ford Taunus was a popular choice across Europe, with the third generation being the first in history to utilise front-wheel drive technology. One is available, dry stored in Spain. Although needing a complete restoration, this is a very rare three door estate model. Top it off with a V6 Cologne unit, the £950 asking price seems quite reasonable. Now to get it shipped back to Blighty! by Mike Armstrong
