The rest of the interior show some little signs of the hot climate in Sicily, ut generally good with good door panels not spoiled with loudspeakers. Mechanics are all sound. The engine starts at first attempt with choke and runs smooth without noises or smoke etc. Gearbox, xles and power train are fine. The car received a great service just ~ 100 mls. ago.
