If the Dolomite doesn't go then the plan is to tow with it for this season and buy a project car to make ready for next season, which means time for me to learn to mig weld.
I'm planning on digging out the halogen heater and et in the piper this week. I need to remove all the top cupboards to make it easier for me to fit the new roof boards. The cupboards screw in from the outside, I don't have the room or time to remove the aluminium so I have a cunning plan on how to remove them, then refit them afterwards by screwing them in from the inside. Photos to follow if the cunning plan works
Well the caravan is still under cover, although with this snow it's lucky it is with holes in its roof. Now the Dolomite has gone thought I'd show off the new towcar, needs some bodywork but underneath is solid
AIRC - Having been an Dolomite owner in the 70's - All Dolomites are RWD, even the 1300 ones. Toledos are also RWD. It's the ones badged 1500 (before the Dolomite name was introduced) which are mainly FWD. Not sure about the 1500TC.
I think these are all basically the same shell. The Triumph 1300 from about 1965/6 is FWD also, that's the one with the round nose and a family resemblance to the 2000 MK1.
I used my 1300 Dolomite as a towcar from '77 to '79. No problems at all although it was probably over limits when we changed a Sprite Alpine for a Safari 13/2.
Thats the one I was thinking about when I mentioned the 1300 were fwd, I meant the 60's triumph 1300!!
I do not think I've ever seen a dolomite in Malta, the fwd 1300's were plentiful as were toledos though! I might be mistaken but my belief is that they were also built at the Malta Car Assembly.
