Ford's SS1

I can't decide whether to keep the current doors on and swap the wings, or to refit the original doors.

I managed to get the rear anti roll bar off this morning. Bushes weren't in good shape.

Ford's SS1

Ford introduction

Hello from Hull, :) After years of looking for a project car, I've settled on an F reg SS1 1600. The person I bought it from had only stored it for a year and decided to resell. I sent a letter to the owner before that, but haven't heard back yet. Would be nice to try to find out some history throug...

Rear brakes

Hello all, Seems like a previous owner of my car had started disassembling rear brakes and given up. Offside had nut and washer missing, drum took a lot of effort to remove, revealing that everything but the cylinder is missing. Nearside drum came off easily, all components there but obviously need ...

Are the quarterlight frames better on the ones that are fitted?
Ones fitted atm (from a C reg car, I still need to email the info about them for the registry), one has a very wobbly quarterlight, other one is missing.
That's one of my jobs to have a proper look at and decided what to do.

SS1 door striker

Missing, there was only one of the outer pieces in the latch of one of the spare doors, which is quite worn but usable

The car came with original doors, but for some reason has some from another car fitted. Can't see any reason to have taken the originals off.

SS1 door striker

Thanks for the reply, Roger. I'll keep hunting, and hope somebody on here has some. Just found it's the "Reliant 'SCIMITAR' GTE/ GTC 2.8 SE6B/SE8B Parts List" that shows same part number. 220736 in the price list at the bottom, but completely different part number and picture in the pictures above.

Crossmember to bonnet measurement [SS1]

Quite a difficult dimension to measure unless your car is on a lift - and the bonnet curves, so there’s no single measurement. Best I could do was measure from the crossmember to the top of the engine which was around 57cm on a K series and CVH EFi but 59cm on G97 with twin carbs and a thick filter...
