It was 4-lug from the factory, like every Leone. The 5-lug-conversion was done by the previous owner, but as I wanted my very rare pre-facelift-Turismo original, it was biult back to original condition.

... That´s a lot better! Isn´t it beautiful? ...


Yes, it Does Look very Beautiful, Good Job!

I almost can't wait to see the Final results. Posted Image

Also I Like the Mahindra Pick up in the Back, we have many of those in my Country... the "Scorpio" Diesel is pretty Popular.

Could I Ask if you plan to use the Steel 4X140 subaru Rims, or do you plan to put a set of alloy 4X140 rims?

Kind Regards.

No, it had the EA82 with carb as standard. The only thing that will not be like when it came from the factory is the gearbox with AWD, low-range and lockable center-diff. It had the push-button-4WD standard.

@ Loyale 2.7 Turbo:

A friend of mine imports Tata Xenon and Mahindra Pick-Ups to Austria. Only in small numbers as workhorses for communities mostly. They are called Mahindra Goa here because Ford did not allow to call it Scorpio like their model from the 80s and 90s.

I´m not sure about the wheels. I may put some original alloy wheels on, but I have 4 brand-new steel-ones too. Let´s wait and see.

good thing u put the ea82 in it because here in the USA the ea82t doesn't have the heads made for it anymore which means your prity much screwed if u cant find a used one or a parts car

I will.

I wanted the carbed EA82 in it because that´s an engine which will always run, here it has the reputation that you can´t kill it. No electronics, no Turbo, just a simple carb. It will always be repairable. That was the intention.

yep there great motors saw one that went up to 650,000 miles without rebuild thats why it ended up in a junkyard, if u take care of these cars they seriously last forever (as long as u get rid of rust:brow:) by any chance is there any 85 brat tail lights over there? i thought there might be more of a aftermarket selection over where u live because there isn't much left in the US

Forget it, sorry!

The Brat-Pickup was sold in very small numbers here and there are two surviving examples left in Austria, so sadly no parts and no cars. It was available from 82 to 84 here.

Another little update from my Leone. Finally, every rust-spot (we discovered another small hole in the passenger-footwell) is welded, the whole car is at least 5kg heavier because we flooded every panel, the sills and the complete underside with waxoyl so rust will never get this Leone anymore!

Now my friend and mechanic has started to get the car back together. He starts at the trunk and works forward. Some pictures from my visit to the workshop yesterday.

Let´s wait and see what problems will occur on it´s way back together and on the road.

Runs great, looks great, sounds great. One of the best Leones in Austria!

Last weekend, I took part in a classic hillclimb-event. We had to drive up a hill two times, they took our time and the driver with the most equal times won. I was 19th from 21. Yes, I was 45 seconds faster in the second turn. Just because I had so much fun in the Leone.

In Europe, we got the same rear-lights as the JDM-versions, so they are pretty standard and normal here. Yes, that´s a fog-light on the left, rear-view-light on the right.

Actually, no you didn't. JDM doesn't have rear fogs, so are the same as USDM & ADM.

 

It was the same with my 93 JDM Legacy import wagon. It had larger red part, "clear" indicators & then 2 reverse lights. ADM got yellow indicators with 1 reverse light & 1 rear fog.

Actually, I'm a little surprised no one from the US had a whinge that you "wrecked" a high roof wagon to help with this project :P

Seeing as they are rare there.

 

It's the same as us Aussies complaining when a US person wrecks a coupe :P
