I was completely unfamiliar with this model and just read the wikipedia article. What a nifty car! :beautiful:

Apparently, if this particular unit was originally sold in the US, you might have a bit more oomph than you thought.

From the article:"The V4s used in US cars had a 1500 cc high compression engine with 73 hp (54 kW; 74 PS). For the 1971 model year it was switched to a 1700 cc low compression engine, so as not to lose power while meeting new emissions regulations. Stated power dropped to 65 hp (48 kW; 66 PS) for 1972 as SAE gross figures were abandoned in favor of the lower net ratings. 1973 was the last year that the 96/95 were available in the United States."

The much appreciated Cooler weather means the end of another Hurricane season … And Thank Goodness too !!! :worship:
Foamstream will need to be winterized ….which means we’ll look inside , close the door and walk away …for a little while until we get the idea to do some more "fixing up” ... :D But that won’t happen till the Spring most likely , so we have a few months to think about the things we can add to the trailer , and then talk ourselves out of it … :lol:
I can’t believe it’s held up almost 7 years now , living OUTSIDE. :o The longest any camper trailer has ever lasted me , that’s for sure !!! ... :thumbsup:

But I still can’t help thinking about building another trailer … a lower one to fit my New /Old car … Thinking Zephyr still , already have the trailer ..”It’s a Dilly” ... :thinking:
This is the building season … ;)
