I own a 2.4 MKII, RHD, red on red, wires manual with OD, with a Webasto.
They made it to our shores, but sort of doubt by dealers as every one I have seen is RHD. Would have thought they’d be LHD?
The car should not be as rare, as the 2.4 was made in greater numbers.
I imported the car in '82 after working in the UK. Drove it home from NYC, learning to shift left handed and dealing with Connecticut tolls from the wrong side of the car. That’s when the Webasto came in handy. Oh yeah, the heater, on a typical New England January, barely kept 8" of the windshield defrosted.
Great engine, the original plan was to swap it out for another 3.4/3.8 that was spare, even bought the the needed parts. Problem was engine is pretty sweet. Runs like a sewing machine. Car had been fitted with SU’s but the Solexes were in the trunk. I don’t believe the rear end is original. The ratio seems wrong. I’m doing 60 and under 2000 RPM, meaning I will be grabbing another gear for most hills. Great mileage though.
