Thread: Newbie in Scotland

  1. #1 Newbie in Scotland 
    Hello everyone

    Im totally new to the scene-just bought a berlinetta based on a 1971 cortina 1600 pinto engine( I know the 2ltr a better engine). I am totally new to kit cars classic cars etc so please excuse me if in future I ask some questions and we get the " I cant believe he asked that".

    I do have couple friends that are mechanics and one of them actually served their time working on pinto engines. The car I have bought has alot still to do with the interior, I have a few ideas, but would always appreciate thoughts suggestions etc. Once the car is actually here at my home I will take some pics and go from there.

    I believe the car is known to members as it was previously down in Sevenoaks, Kent and belonged to a Dr.

    Thanks for reading and look forward to participating in the club

    Richard

    Welcome to the club from a fellow Scottish Berlinetta owner. You will find lots of information on this forum, there is a section dedicated to the Berlinetta, and some of the build diaries are also of Berlinettas. Don't be afraid to ask anything you are not sure of.

    Regards Scott.

    Hi Richard, I hope you enjoy finishing the car, You will get plenty of help on here. I have kept spares for the Berlinetta for many years so don't be stuck if you find you need something. Did you get a build manual with the car. I know it is fitted with a 1600 cc OHV engine and 4 speed box, and fitted with a soft top. Good luck keep in touch.
