  1. This was THE car every 14 yr old in the country fantasized about after the
    James Bond movie. Car go underwater with girl inside it, oh yeah. Later,
    when Back to the Future came out, it was the Delorean.

    Nice. I have a ’77 that was “rescued” and needs everything. I really love
    the S1 Esprit, but don’t think I’m going to be putting this car back to its
    full glory and am working on selling it.

    who did the respray for you…and the engine rebuild…and possibly more
    and do you have a contact or email ….thank you…CAL,

    Γεια σας φίλο, από μία πρώην κάτοικος της Αμμοχώστου Superb record of your
    restoration job Constantine! I’m a friend of DC the previous owner and have
    known the car for the 25 years, I helped remove the body so that original
    chassis could be cleaned and galvanised & I’m one of the few people who has
    driven it towed it and been a passenger in it! Great rad job & triple fan
    cooling system & the body work and original upholstery job is pure magic!
    Take care of that fussy original engine ;-) Chris

    engine…had to mute this video, unsufferable music.
