Here's the important picture. Seems to be a little bit of surface rust those pretty solid when I started poking at it underneath the battery tray. Car was purchased in 78 with 38000 miles on it. The woman who owned it paid $100 a month for 23 years to keep it in dry storage.

Your picture is not a picture of the master cylinder. That is the reservoir for the m/c.

The m/c is under the car.

It looks like a good find!!! What year is it, what serial number, and it looks like a 1.7? and,….

Car is still deep in the barn and I was not able to get to the drivers side yet. I will have more photos next week.
It is a 1.7 that has about 5,000 miles on a rebuild where they had it bor ed out to 19xx (don't remember), had the heads worked on and switched out the fi for dellortos.

A somewhat early '72, nice vintage. When do we see the rest?

Wild looking wide body- any other pictures of that one? Your find is definitely not an everyday experience and more than a few of us (me included!) are a little jealous! That's okay- jump on it and enjoy it! And... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/welcome.png)
