I bought this 9000 Carlsson H767 WAT in January 2002 (I was 22 at the time) for £1600 with 108K miles on it.
I exported to France in 2004 and has been parked in a tent in my garden since 2008 due to needing welding to the chassis, other cars and the house got in the way.
It’s complete still have the original wheels (currently on my dads 900 T16 Cab) but now has a fair bit of rot to deal with.

Today I decided to find out if its worth saving or too far gone and destined to the scrap yard. I really hope it is worth saving have a lot of happy memories with this car.

This will be very picture intensive and the restoration will be slow if it is worth saving.

I have stripped some of the boot out to see the rear shock towers floor and inner arches.

Some holes in the floor I think the sound deadening is hiding a fair bit more.

Well I pulled the plugs put a little oil in each cylinder, checked water oil and removed the mouse nest from the air filter, the turbo spins free and then spun it over no problem.
Oil pressure was ok.
Put some fuel and the plugs back in and it fired but only on two cylinders. Swapped the plugs around same two firing and had fuel at the other two so maybe the DIC is bad :?

Roof lining is long gone but the seats are very good.

Quick update all cylinders have 145psi very even (old gauge no idea how accurate it is) and with the spark plugs in the DIC and them earthed they all have a good spark.
Crank sensor maybe?
I will pull the motor apart anyway replace gaskets and inspect for any wear but be good to get it running before.

Really keen to rebuild her no way I can scrap it now :mrgreen:

you deserve some encoragement if your determined to do such a job
thats gonna be a mega job

would you not consider a reshell i bet it would be quicker etc not that ive done a reshell but my bro did in 3 months

you can remove acess clean rebulid paint bits then fit them to the good shell then one day you have all good bits on a good shell so many more years of life

my 9000 dont have a spot of rust not hit 50k yet mines not a carlsson boo

GOOD LUCK :D

I just need to find a nice guy to donate me a 50k mile mint shell :lol:

Have been thinking today about re-shelling it after possibly finding a Carlsson shell last night but that needs rear arches too.
Then got thinking about finding a car here in France if its mid France will never have seen salt and could then convert it to LHD and find one with AC (mine doesn’t have it)
I would be keeping it long term it’s not to sell on, but I don’t want to rebuild it and devalue it making it LHD.

The cars I have seen here are between 1000-1500 euros same hatch shape but slope front but my bonnet and bumper are ok, they are 2.3 Turbos :park: can anybody tell me my options keeping the Carlsson ECU box etc but going 2.3? Possible upgrades to get more power etc as I will be rebuilding the motor anyway?? Again, don’t want to devalue it maybe best left with original motor just rebuilt.
Are the looms the same?
Lot to think about :shock:
Appreciate people’s thoughts.

I know where there is a shell in good condition, but it's MY97 IIRC and the wrong era for you. Shame.

The silver one is basically a Carlsson they called them an SP so it has sunroof, AC, suspension, ECU etc just different trim and wheels have email them all nobody has answered :wall:

The 2.3 will be in the shell I would be using with the wiring loom.

I have another post here on possible upgrade options http://www.uksaabs.co.uk/UKS/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=189849
