Austin 12/4 special coupe

Post by mi-go-a-go-go »

Originally a standard 4 seater. Then converted into a milk churn wagon on a farm in the north Lakeland. Then made into what it is now as a run around on a caravan site. When it was driven in here it was running. plan is to pick it up and get it running and stopping then decide where to go next.

Its the door issue thats the burning one after getting it going

Car now at local mechanic he has the plugs out and diesel down. hopefully free off the engine. 3 wheels pumped up and held air. tyres are jiggered but it was a nice positive sign.

Cheers

I will try to keep updated.

Nothing exciting today just the treatment of the spare wheel strap.
