Another great eBay spot, this is one seriously rare, and cool, car! If you want to stand out from the crowd, this could well be the project you are looking for.
From the seller: “This is the second car for sale, from the collection of the late Scott Martin, the UK’s No.1 180/2 litre enthusiast.
During the 1990s, he bought a lot of 180s, and only kept the ‘saveable’ cars, choosing to break any unrestorable cars for parts.
In the UK, there are about 10 180/2L cars left, and only 2, sometimes 3 on the road.
The car was a tragic outcome of Chrysler’s poor management after the takeover of Rootes Group. Originally designed as a Humber/Hillman ‘C’ car for the 1970s, it was the bigger brother of the Avenger.
Sadly, during development, the engineering had to shared throughout Chrysler Europe, and as a result, you had a car with British Styling and Suspension, French engine, American gearbox (Torqueflite), Italian Carburation, and Spanish wiring.”
