History Originally red. I bought it from Tony K. The PO before him had begun an all-out restoration--blasted/powder-coated the chassis, cadmium-plated all the bare parts, new springs/dampers, then had to sell. Also had the entire front end of an S2 grafted on from the top of the wheel arches forward. Also not a numbers-matching car. So since it's a mongrel I decided to do what I wanted with it, i.e., respray it Colorado Orange and have Nick Fulcher do the interior in my family tartan (Guthrie). He did all the patterning before he died last year--it was the last S1 he ever worked on. His son Steven is about to finish the job. Mike Halker and Tony K are handling the rest of the restoration. Body's on chassis. Engine startup video at
