Default 1964 Amazon 122S restoration project

I bought this last year as a non-running project. It's been stored at a relative's house while I finished off my hefty 240 GLT project (Thread here!)

It's a '64 122S. The bodywork is exceptionally straight and rust free, but the underside and engine bay need a fair amount of welding.

The car is a South African import. It was brought to the UK in the mid 70's I believe. As such there's a few extra details such as the different seats and flying boot handle trim.

The interior is pretty decent, with an intact headling, good seats, door cards and dash. The dashpad is, predictably, scrap.

It has a B18A single carb engine which is seized as the #4 spark plug has been left out.

A day or so after I bought this car another one came up a few miles away for low scrap value, but it had a working twin carb B18, an overdrive box, a good interior and pretty much everything else in it worked. I bought that and stripped it down as a donor car.

I stripped it clean.

And off it went.

So the project has sat in storage for about 6 months while I got the 240 back on the road. I managed to get a nice clean MOT for it in December.

With the 240 now back on the road, I got the Amazon moved to my place this weekend so that I could start work on it.

Stay tuned for a major weldathon, engine rebuild, etc!
