THE GENERAL'S MOTOR • First owned by a general in the Bulgarian People's Army, this Volga is now bringing some Cold War intrigue to the streets of Cambridge.

SPECIFICATION

THE PERSONAL TOUCH • Canadian Larry Spouler is a serial amateur restorer of Triumphs, with a CV that includes two Spitfires, a TR4, a plastic TR6 (aka a TVR 2500M) and a more challenging Mayflower. He recently finished this 1974 1500, and incorporated one or two modifications along the way.

GILDING THE LILY • Gavin Hutton’s Ford Consul Cortina Super Estate drew its inspiration from the US of A, and mixes great practicality with one major styling gimmick.

10 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT... THE FIRST GENERATION RANGE ROVER • Conceived as a working vehicle in the mould of the Series Land Rovers but offering a little more in terms of both size and comfort, the Range Rover turned out to be a runaway success in ways its originators could scarcely have imagined in their wildest dreams.

MG MIDGET PROJECT PART 12 THE FINISHING TOUCHES? • Buckle up, because there is lots to get through in our final instalment of Project Midget as we round up a few choice moments during the reassembly stage.

Troubleshooting with Steve Rothwell • Our helpful Q&A hotline may be able to solve your classic-related problems, so email us at classics.ed@kelsey.co.uk and we’ll do our best to help.

PROJECT MINI CLUBMAN PART 10 • The Mini is our second project car to get wrapped up this issue, and we finish with a visit to AP2 gearbox specialist Martin Altria of Northampton to check and service our automatic gearbox.

AUSTIN MONTEGO ESTATE PART 2 • We make a start on the body repairs to our rather forlorn Montego estate, knowing that if this first cut reveals anything too horrific, the project could well be over before it has really begun.

TRACING THE LEAKS

PROJECT BLOWER BENTLEY SERVICING THE BEAST PART 3 • Rob Hawkins is handed the keys to our Bentley Turbo R and sets to work servicing it, before turning his attention to a growing list of problems. Thankfully he has a local specialist to help, and access to a two-post lift.
