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 through the club later.
Luckily only a few bits have been missing, which Scimjim has very kindly sent already.
So far all I've managed to do is put all the spare panels in the loft, finish disassembling brakes (had been half done by somebody in the past), and used an awful lot of penetrating oil.
I won't be able to throw money at it, so will be checking everything over and getting it ready for an MOT rather than a full restoration. Hoping to find a service manual somewhere too.
I'll be making a project thread once there's enough content for a first post.

Regards, Ford

We just like pictures anyway. Progress or otherwise!

Welcome. The SS1 is a great litle car when sorted and provides reliable and affordable fun. Besides loads of pictures of your project, may I have the VIN please so that I can update the register?

Many thanks.
