  • 1979 - in the desert

  • now in the barn

Had been running like a mule until 1998 when it had some rest and the engine rebuild for the fourth time. It has a true tubular steel chassis and more steel parts as the newer models. Cruise speed 50 MPH, max speed 65 MPH.

Mechanics is top now, could run another 50,000 MPH with no service.

1969 : Bucharest (Ro) -> Pau & Bordeaux (Fr)
1979 : Bucharest (Ro) -> Aman & Zarqa (Jordany) cross the Mediteranean See and thru the desert with a 90 Liters extra fuel tank.

Both ways !

It really deserves to be restored as it's a lovely car, first choice for a Paris - Pekin or other kind of tough marathon.

For sale 3500$ including parts and photos around the world
