Various parts for sale

I also have a late Sabre boot spoiler. They look great on an SS1. This one has been brush painted in matt black, but with a bit care this could be rubbed down and painted with a rattle can. It has been fitted with an LED brake light, but this could easily be removed and the hole filled. I understand...

Various parts for sale

As I’m getting to the end of my SS1 project, I have a few parts left over that I’ll be putting on eBay in the next week. But I thought I’d give you lot first refusal. The seats will need to be picked up from Macclesfield. I’m willing to hold on to them for a couple of weeks, but they are taking up t...

No I’ve not tried the other one yet. I may just see if I can raise the deck a few mm.

Seems ages since it looked like this :- (click refresh if the photos don't appear). First proper day on this project. I think the pictures speak for themselves.... Next job is to pull the suspension apart. http://i657.photobucket.com/albums/uu291/stevecork/SabreTi/C34B6594-A4B8-4CFA-9D1F-9B3228C9C98...

Still loads to do, but I got it to a point where it could be taken off SORN and out for a test drive. * 1ltr swirl pot installed, with a Facet Gold-Flo pump. * New wiring and relays for both fuel pumps installed. So less strain on the earth in the ECU. * Boot hinges removed and adjusted (in a vice w...

A couple more jobs done. I finally managed to put the last pieces of bodywork on, sourced a couple of excellent door cards and fitted those. A package containing some handle inserts arrived from Jim today (cheers Jim), so I’ll finish off the door cards tomorrow. I need to sort out the boot hinges. T...

Mad prices of Fords

Just look up KGF classic cars. They regularly sell Capris and early Escorts for £20-£55k . Sabres and SE4s were once hunted down for their ZF gearboxes for Lotus owners. Many a GTE has been scrapped for its chassis for kit car builders. If there’s a shortage of Essex engines then............... On t...

Thanks Jim, I’m reasonably confident it’ll work out ok now.

I just hope my gamble pays off and the car is quicker than the Sabre was :hand:
