History
Just bought this one a few months ago. AC wasn't working when I bought it but figured it would make it through the winter. Ran it for a while as my DD and was happy; except it sounds like I'm riding in a twin engine turboprop.
It started making a noise the day before Christmas. So I opened the hood to check and it sounded like the engine was playing jingle bells. Turns out the AC compressor mounting bolt was hanging there with a large nut on the end (head side opposite threads) and vibrating out a very nice jingle sound.
And so it begins.....
Maybe I'll find one in better condition along the path of restoration that this one takes me. It was hit in the rear once and there are signs of slight crumpling under the trunk floor liner.

Modifications

Drivetrain
1.6 Diesel, naturally aspirated or is exasperated. Suffers from some sort of breathing disorder and is begging for a turbo.
Interior
Would like to change the interior color to a something darker. It currently matches the exterior paint; including the ugly.
Exterior
I'm collecting the parts to convert it to the European rally car look with the quad headlight arrangement.
Audio
Twin engine Turboprop Beechcraft 1900D.
Suspension
Yes....
Wheel and Tire
Yup.. got them too...
