Yes thought that if it was a last resort .

Does make me wonder if I am having this much trouble finding the right car then how much trouble would I have getting together all the parts to do the auto to manual conversion .

Well this is turning more difficult than I thought , not asking for much or am I ? Are these so good that nobody wants to part with there car. This is my wish list .
Mk1 2000 or PI , not automatic . Saloon or estate . Restored or good original . Up and running and no major work needed . Standard or modified .NO RUST . Now that’s not too much to ask is it.

Described as a restoration project , seen it previously and decided too much work and I want something that’s either done or very very nice original . Thanks for the tip off though .

Bear in mind, you're looking for a near perfect 50 year old car. Even here in New Zealand without your rust issues, it would be a big ask, without serious big money changing hands.
Good Luck :shock:
Tony.

What about this MK1?

Looks a good project that one! I agree with Tony what I paid for the Pi with a seized engine, a bit of rot in the wings and tired paint. To break even I would have to sell it for 15k. But our big saloons have rarely tested the water in high end Condition and command high price. I have seen examples sold 10k and I wouldn’t sell any of my Pi’s for less then 10k at the moment.
