    SmileFord Consul mk2 RBY 743

    Does anyone have any history on my consul,its a mk2 highline and was bought as a rolling shell,it had a 3 litre essex in it at one time which had been removed and the bulkhead cut out,log book shows it owned by steven punter from ramsgate,and i think the owner before was a garage in ramsgate too. There is a sticker in the window for the 1992 great leighs NSRA show,its green and debumpered and shaved of trim,I've got pictures of it on my intro if that helps.

    Was the bulkhead cut back for the V6? If so, it sounds like it might be one a mate had years ago, stick some photos up.
    How'd the weekend go? Well, at the moment it looks like a dolphin that's been caught in a boats propeller.

    RBY 743 nearly finished but at least it was running approx 2001



    Taken approx 2001 and it was sold with the choice of 2 bonnets (1 being louvered as in photo)

    Were the bonnet louvres pretty big, around 7"? A hell of a lot points towards it being my mates old car but his was a lowline. It was at Rogers, it had a V6, it was sold to a very good mate of Malcs whose name escapes me at the minute & it had a louvred bonnet. Did it come Appliance five spokes & a visor?

    Yes to the louvers and V6, the car was out back along side the lean2 and was in a sorry state and it sat on stock wheels and no sun visor which means they probably got used on something else and it was definitely a 56 highline
    And for information Alki is alive & kicking in Yorkshire
