it comes with a hood , windscreen and doors.

it is mostly dismantled and is in a rough condition, restorable but rough.

it need a good home, i have too much on my plate at the moment. any serious offers to rescue this car contact me...p.s. there is no engine or box with the car.......

I've now unsiezed the friction? dampers, very strange things, they almost ratchet and rebound.

It looks quite a tidy arrangement, as far as it goes .... How was the rear of the torsion bar mounted, and what exactly was the builder trying to achieve?

So it is using the torsion bar - interesting

Hi Steve, do you have any pictures of how the front suspension was set up?

Today I have been stripping the brackets off the diff and axle casing, think they were welded by "blind phew" plus they were all over the place, not in line odd size holes and not square to each other. Thought things were going to well.

The old gent who I got this car from, told me, and gave me the paperwork, that this back axle has been fully overhauled and only done maybe 60 miles ! so yes that may be reused.

Cortina and escort rears are a touch to wide so BMC would be the best option.
