Right then.... back in the early 90s as no one could be found to put this back on the road for the owner she (lou) was put in touch with me :tup:my answer was that i couldnt see a problem so get it over to me :tup:all she wanted was it done to a rolling chassis so she could finish it

This is how i first found it....



she set every thing in the above picture up to make it look better lol, but i could see what was needed and below is how it came to me :eek::shock::shock:i have to say though that the pictures dont do it justice.....it was not as good as it looks in the pictures :eek:...spanners face said it all




She had a mk4 cortina which i was to use as the donor car, sadly someone had already tried fixing the doors for her & made a bad job of them but from that i did what you see the cab was very bad with no back or door shuts to it & loads of rust !!





new front chassis, floor, bulk head, rear cab, door shuts, front screen opening & banded front wings



And yes she got it done & on the road :tup: And no i have no idea where it is now ??

Whilst investigating an old derelict farm building over xmas i stumbled across this in the front room.

In a small backroom there was a rusting pile of parts but nothing salvagable and probably not from the same vehicle.

Found some other early tin but someone had already nicked the running gear:lol:
