    Toys for boys

    Well changing the topic just a little
    i thought i might wizz all you forty somethings
    back to the eighties.

    Something i allways wanted and found it just
    in time.
    She was ripe for the scrap yard but had a massive
    history with the last owners having it for 24 years.
    This 1980 3.0s was a genuine special order car
    of the day being black.
    I stripped her to a bare shell and completed 147
    hours reconstructive welding.
    I stripped the engine and had ported and vented
    unleaded heads from Burtons performance cars
    fitted,a brand new high volume oil pump and manual choke
    webber.
    Everything was Fully detailed and put back together.
    The car had a full bare metal respray with clear over base
    and baked.
    I finished her in late summer this year and have had one
    show in Essex under my belt,with loads of interest generated.
    My Friend was in his Mk1 RS2600 Taking photos of me on the
    A12 and still out acelarated Him with no probs.
    Check out the fishnet reacaro interior,Rare in black.

    Ahh Bodie for sure,He should have been the next James bond.

    Even with New GT2 Tyres you can still get the arse to twitch
    But what fun.

    Aye,happy days!

    Some of my pals had these a few years back ranging from 1.6 through to the 2.8 and that mad 3.0.

    If i remember,i think my mates 2.8 used to be a police car?
    Lovely restoration on yours Phil,well done!

    Yes you are correct about the 2.8i as most of the police cars
    back then ran out of puff until they turned the tables
    with the Injection (goes like lightening).

    Best phil

    Thanks Andy

    Just seems to long ago since these were all over the place when we realy
    did have a choice of some nice old Fords to abuse,and move on to something else.Long live the British Mustang.

    Cheers phil
