    Mk2 Consul

    Recently bought this little box of fun off Craig up near Doncaster. Craig was straight up about the car and we did a deal in advance of me seeing it. Car was as described, which was bloody good as I had a 140 mile drive home and no return ticket. Jorney home was epic, exhaust leaking, ****ing loud and slight grumble from the prop. Slightly short diff meaning its reving it little V6 nuts off on the motorway but good fun to boot around in.

    Plans are to use it as is and tweek the look while on the road, immediate jobs are to put some better gauges in as the stock ones are useless at night. Rear end is lowered such that it's causing the UJ's to grumble so pinion angle will be corrected. Prop is home brew so might get replaced and the scallops arnt to my liking. Exhaust is leaking and needs a decent system making. Longer term might see, rear end swapped for an 8in as it's a English axle currently, US Ford PCD al round, daisy mags or slots and the motor might be upgraded for a 302 but not before the end of next year. Paint who knows ....

    Overall well pleased with it and the cars a testament to the original builder and the successive owners.







    Little video made by the original builder, which was really handy to see how it was originally put together.

    Done a good job on the front end etc. His video in YouTube was really helpful in deciding whether to buy it
