As I mentioned in my introduction I am going to view a 1971 S2 1.3s coupe tomorrow and thought I'd try and put together a list of the most important things to check.
Specifically things that I may deem not of great importance but due to parts availability or repair costs should be high on my list of priorities.
(Main body/structure checks Front subframe, rear suspension boxes, sills, bottom of doors......)

I am intending to use the car as a year round regular driver (Mostly snow/ice) so a solid/sound running car is what I'm after......I have neither the space or skill for a project but do have a neighbour who is a very capable mechanic to do any major work. I am happy to do all minor refurbishment/parts replacements as part of a rolling 'Tidy up'.

Any advice gratefully received.
