Prescott 25 May 2019

Fantastic :D

Was the the ring worth it?
Absolutely - I think it was €25 - it was a few Deutschmarks last time I went :D

Make sure your car is tip top or take out insurance for a few more euros though, recovery is expensive and Armco repairs are eye wateringly expensive!

SE5 - What's it worth?

Impossible to value on that info but £500 would be for the rolling chassis alone - a project with galv chassis would be much more IMO.

bonnet cable

The easiest and quickest way is to remove the steering wheel and dash - not as difficult as it sounds and gives excellent access.

What type Ford gearbox?

There is no 4 speed type 9.

1300 is the type 3, 1400 is the type E (no idea what a late spec box is?)
