the bufty in me would have to restore that car

would be quite an easy resto tho as its in superb condition

thanks for the pics Tony

It really is very original Paul , the interior could be hoovered and polished and left alone ! Underneath needs a good going over and of course anything metal or alloy needs a proper sort out ,the atmosphere in Asia eats cars alive as you know . Any of the spares that are well wrapped are ok but a lot of the metal parts show some corrosion .

The Radio inside the car is is a briliant old thing and still has a whole packet of Eggenberger cable ties holding it in !!

This would be the purple, black & white livery you were talking about.

As for the RHD Rouse car, or possiby another RHD car, I have seen these 3 livery's.

What you have to remember is that Trampio is ( or was ) a Toyo tyre so the name gets bandied around quite a lot !

The other liveries are all mainly other cars,certainly the RHD cars anyway , the car Alex has is quite easy to spot in various pics, it has a distinctive positioning of the Quickfills , the left side in particular is well down and farback compared to most !

Also the cage , or lack of it is very easy to see, there is NO Diagonal Cross Brace at all only vertical uprights from tunnel /seat sqaub to central hoop !

Probably wouldnt get away with that these days as you need a diagonal behind the driver at least

Great video, thanks. Its very helpful to see some interior shots which are always the most difficult to find.

  Meanwhile progress is being made with the car. Will post a few more pics soon. Alex
