    Pro Street Corsair

    Thought it was about time I showed you my (very) long term project.
    Here it was when I first got it from my dad, who gave it to me on condition that I didn't cut it up.



    So, out came the grinder, out came the floor / bulkhead and in went a pair of Hauser rails, 4 x 2 main rails and a CDS roll cage (thanks to Guy for the bends).



    OK, so it wasn't quite that easy, I had to fit new inner & outer sills plus I folded up some U sections to run along the inside of the sills. The floor will end up chanelled by about 2".



    Rear end is a Chevy 10 bolt, bought already narrowed - which was nice. Paul G brackets, 4 bar by me.



    Front end is Mk2 Escort x-member & rack, adjustable TCAs, Capri struts and off set top mounts. Column is home made from a Capri inner & Corsair outer.

    Engine is a mildish 302, rebuilt by me. It's my first engine build so we'll see what happens there. Gearbox is a rebuilt (thanks Paul G) C4 with a shift kit.





    Seats are Jaz.



    And this is how things are looking round about now.

    Good grief, You were building this years ago when I bought a narrowed Volvo axle off you for a pop which I finished about 5 years ago Looking damn good though, I look forward to seeing it finished in the (distant) future
