Came across some older pics of the same car. Someone gave it some TLC before it went on sale (again?), by the looks of it. Another quirk: it's got amber-coloured reversing lights!  ???

Looks to be in reasonable condition. Is someone working on it, to bring it back on the road?

I found the ad back in December 2016. The car appeared to sell back then, but no idea where it went or what happened to it. As for last week's orange four-door, it appears to have its own youtube-channel:  https://www.youtube.com/user/favarer93/videos

Week 7. Another 1971 four-door. This time French. Oh, la vache! Quelle voiture!
(the bonnet is series II and the radiator grille is 616, but never mind)

That's my car  :13:

Welcome, Kevin!  :welcome:
That means two Rx2 project cars on the forum!

Btw, you were right about those amber reversing lights. Not easy to see on the pic, but the red French coupé above has them, and so has next week's Rx2 of the week: a French classic rally car. So hold on to those lenses! They are seriously rare!

Right, then. Week 9 approaching. Again, we stay in the land of amber reversing lights. This red series I coupé is made famous by driver Serge Garosi in classic rallies of recent years, not least the Rallye Monte Carlo Historique. A real gem. And it looks really handsome going sideways in the snow, too.
