Not surprising that engine got hot, it is missing all the lower tinware, thermostat, flaps etc etc.

Otherwise, looks a great project - very solid too

cheers! lol, yeah all the bits are in the boxes of stuff that go with it along with a 1200 engine. The story goes that after it got hot it was taken out and they began to take it apart to identify the problem. Unfortunately they couldn't work it out so started putting it back together and broke an oil seal on one of the pistons on re-assembly. They then got distracted by a 2cv so just bundled the engine back in, as is, and locked it up in the garage for 14 years

Well I've been referring to it as a "she" but I've just had to run it past the boss for the official final word .

It is now officially a she and has been named snowflake

Aww how cute. I cant wait to get mine to the point where i can determine its "gender", but i reckon mine will be a she too if the missus gets her way.

One of the 66s i owned back in 95 i think ,which was pre internet for me and only used to take photos when i sold them.The one thing i regret about all the cars i have owned is not taking photos .The other 66 i still have but after owning a string of white cars i decided to paint this one black.i have owned it since 89 and has always been my modified car .
