Interior has been stripped & sold for $220!
Sold to Jim, a great guy who found himself an even cheaper 240 with a tired interior.
Thanks to his help we were able to strip ours out in just over an hour.
While we were there he kindly offered to run a compression test on the enginem, the results weren't as bad as I had feared.. 130, 120, 120 & 90.
Not catastophic, but oil consumption may be an issue in the race.
During this he also noticed that the plugs weren't tight in the block, so he gapped and reinstalled them properly.
Driving home, it could be a function of the extra noise, but the car feels a lot quicker now.
unfortunately there is a slight issue with Carbon Monoxide entering the cabin while driving, which means the car will need to be parked until we find some kind of leaky-free exhaust sorted out.
