the lump alone would be 10 grand from the states  :o
there's better engines to spend that sort of dollar on now
sticking an LC block in a 12v GSi does not an LC make  :P

the rust holes in the body provide enough airflow to the driver on the one day a year that the UK is warm  ;)
Carltons are not race cars ,they are family saloons
and i'm NOT knocking Carltons, I drove them as a daily for 20 years  8)
in fact it's pretty much 3 years to the day since I sent my last Carlton off to Ireland for retirement

.......... no tin worm worries on the body.


You're still going to need to be good at welding though to build a chassis etc from scratch   :o

not sure how you would get on trying to get a log book either as i imagine the vin and therefore the title would go with the chassis  :-\

sorry your honour  :-[

 I've made a p155 poor attempt at trying to correcting it  :P

GRP ,much like an Omega owner ,gets old ,brittle and crusty with time anyway  :D
