Are there any other difference apart from the engine mounts between the 1.3 and 1.1?

Yesterday at a friends workshop I saw a Gypsy chassis and engine/gearbox etc.. The body has gone for repairs elsewhere. I've been told it's a auctioned gypsy from the northeast. There are a few parts missing. It's a widetrack with a 1300cc engine. The cyl head has been changed to a 16 valve type from an esteem. They are still to decide on the type CDI cos I believe the 16 V CDI will go into the firewall of this gypsy. I have photos of the chassis with the mechanicals on it. If anyone wants to see I can post them.

Good speed Sachin! What color are you planning? Was there too much of denting needed? The body did "look" ok to me...
