Exterior


Bodywork:

Glass:

Paint:

Trim:

Remarks

The Flavia is a very interesting colour, understated design with some beautiful details. There is a small dent on a bit of the chrome work at the rear.

Interior


Door-Cards:

Carpets:

Seating:

Headlining:

Dashboard:

Boot:

Remarks

The original floor mats are like new. They have obviously been covered by additional mats which are now not with the car. The original red leather seats have some patina but the leather is still strong and could be recoloured. I have not done this as I prefer that they remain original.

Engine


Components:

Appearance:

Starting:

Running:

Remarks

The engine has been rebuild and done 1000km since the rebuild. It's really smooth and drives perfectly. Pistons, rings, all bearings and timing chain was replaced. All original engine parts can come with the car. If it hasn't been started for a few weeks it takes some cranking to pull the petrol up to the carb before it will fire. Just part of the starting process.

Transmission


Gears:

Clutch:

Drive-Shaft:

Remarks

Smooth gear change, all very quiet with ratios perfectly matched to the characteristics of the engine.

Wheels & Tyres:

Remarks

Car drives very well. The rear leaf springs were replaced with a set from Italy following the drive back from to the UK. A set of 5 new Michelin tyres were fitted just North of Geneva on the drive back from Genoa. The set fitted were beyond their useful life.
