Recommended Posts

hi all,just bought myself a robinhood here in france,one of very few that have been correctly registered....

i'd love to get some more info on what i've got....

looking around google,looks like i just bought "2b_pablo"'s" old car,it's a monocoque robinhood with inboard suspension,don't know if it's mk2 or mk3....

running a 2l pinto on dellorto 40's i'd love to get in touch with people that have come across my car in blighty or northern irelend.....

great! thanks a lot!

niduncan are you still running sierra rear springs and shocks? mine is a bit too low for my liking...thinking about coilover mods but a bit worried about the metalwork required...

I do not think your car is a Series 3, the front suspension look's more like a Series 2.


This is the front suspension of my Series 3:




As for ride height I have AVO coil overs on the back and the original supplied on the front. The ride height can be raised by compressing the springs more. I increased my ride height by replacing the 14" wheels with 185/60R14 tyres to 15" with 195/65R15 tyres which raised the car by about 4cm and also fitted a shortened sump. Road speed humps are no longer a problem.
