I've seen several ground up restorations of 1600s and 2000s. All things
being equal, the cost is very similar. So, other than "because it's been in
my family for years", or "because I like 1600s better than 2000s", why are
some people pouring a ton of money into restoring a stock 1600? Why not go
with a 2000? Same car, but with more gears and more power.
Why would anyone dump a ton of money into restoring either one? The early
1600 has the flat dash that lots of folks like better. The 1600 engine is less
expensive to rebuild and is a more durable engine. I have speeding tickets to
prove the 1600 is plenty fast enough. Since any roadster restoration is a
"nice to have" it is simply a matter of what that individual wants to do. They
are different but I wouldn't say either one is better across the board.
