Bottom one is turbo.. I had one of these.. i rebuilt the motor twice at 18 as I didnt have a clue that the mechanical management system was faulty.. basically it allowed over boost that cracked the wet liners. So there I was rebuilding the thing, new liners, rings, etc.. madness. One I got now is a 5 Gordini but with a lot of Alpine fixtures/branding as it was late off the line and i guess they used up all the last remaining bits at the Dieppe Alpine plant where they were built.
my brother in-law has a genuine chevette HS forsale if you know anyone interested ;D i like the lotus sunbeam too...
my dad used to build those he also owned an avenger 2L gls in pink with a vynal roof. rare as fuck only about 12 of them came out the factory like that. he also worked on the golden one off avenger that was presented to the great archie gemmel
Thats a rare old beast. Cheers mate. Same base motor as the Gordini/Alpine.. I wonder what they did with the gearbox (looks like the same case as standard)because by my reckoning it would need reversing. Maybe they ran the motor backwards?
