Introduction / Overview: My 1974 Vauxhall Magnum 4 door saloon. Had this car too long now to not be on the road yet (9 years and counting!). It will hit the road again i promise
Drivetrain: 1600cc Fiat 131 Mirafiori engine and 5 speed from same. Stock rear axle. Custom exhaust (in progress but its the stock Fiat manifold into a Cherry Bomb centre and a stock Magnum rear silencer). Running stock carb for the time being but twin 40 Solexes are awaiting a manifold
Chassis: Rebuilt standard front calipers and rear drums with EBC Greenstuff pads up front. Goodridge braided hoses through. Avo adjustable shocks and custom 3" and 4" lowered springs.
Wheels and Tires: Currently on original Rostyles but also have a full set of 13x5.5" Wolfrace slotmags, plus two 14x7" rear Wolfrace slotmags. Also a set of 13" and 14" Compomotive meshes and 13x7 and 13x8 Alleycats to chose from!!
Body & Paint:
