She looks like she needs a bit of body work but I understand how expensive cars are in your part of the world. The 3 litre Essex engine is one of the most reliable engines ever built. There only problem being a build up of sludge if the oil wasnt changed regularly, so it may be worth adding a good cleaning agent and running it for a while before draining the oil.

I remember a friend of mine used to own a beautiful black 2.8 Ghia X. One of the nicest cars I ever travelled in.

She was standing in a garge for almost 16 years so every thing needs cleaning ..the body has a lot of rust but lucky for me I found a body that has some doors that are in good condition that I can use.going to respry her but don't know what color yet .

Sounds good to me. Im not biased when I say black always looks good, and the Ghia X interior will set it off well whilst providing that extra bit of luxury.
