these engines really are brilliant although it´s definately not going to be a race car the V6 should move it along quite nicely.
To be honest i can´t see us making the Gathering this year but next year should be a go!
you´re right mate and it doesn´t help having two sons that are just as daft as their father
Cheers Tony, the last few years have been a bit Merc heavy so it´s nice to get my hands on an old sholl Ford again...even if it isn´t mine
Really jealous you got a 2.3 cheap too, starting to think about getting into historic hillclimb and fancy seeing if I can make a fire breathing 2.3 but they're getting rare in the UK now it seems.
Keep up the good work
The 2.3´s are getting rare over here too mate, we´ve been after one since last summer but most of the ones that come up are either too expensive or automatics.
I agree mate,
I wouldn´t have said no myself before the previous owner parked it up outside and ignoring it for the best part of twenty years
I made the most of the brilliant weather today (25 degrees in the shade) and ripped the rear axle out of the donor car...
along with all the other goodies that we´ll be needing...
So the donor can now go to the big Taunus graveyard in the sky....
