Today I spent most of the day in the Escort driving too and from Lincoln, to collect a haul of parts from an EX HA Van owner, alas the parts were in poor condition but between myself and a chap who came along to split the pile we ended up with the items we wanted.
I left with a later 1256cc engine some HA discs, two gearboxes, some headlights, brake shoes and cylinders, a full set of top and bottom ball joints, and some clutches…. There are a few items I need for Marvin…. But mostly these items I don’t want to see go for scrap so I took them.
My fellow tatt hauler has a van full of wings three engines an axle and just as much tatt as myself. My garage is now full and there is just room to get Marvin back in. In the picture is 5 engines, 4 gearboxes, several heads, exhaust, tow bar and an axle, amazing what I used to hide away in the shed of plenty.
God knows what its going to be like when I move the GT and all the panels out of storage in Burton.. I suspect the cars will be back on the drive and the garage a parts shed..
