I bought this car in April 2001, and have done a full cosmetic restoration on it myself,
all but squirting the paint. It has the 1500cc BMC 4 cylinder, with three-on-the-tree manual shift.
Having not done anything to the engine except installing a Weber 32 ict carburetor, it still gives me about 35mpg.
