Good luck with the project! You will probably get good money for that licence plate when you replace the engine (as you will have to take a modern number). YSL no less!

Is that the under coat or are you giving it a matt black finish? Matt black looks deadly :)

That'll make it more streamlined, I know an old Ford Anglia in Matt Black and it looks amazing!! I'm mad into old fords and go to alot of the shows. There's a place near here that has a few old scrap cars don't know exactly what he has but planning on calling in as I want a nice set of old hub caps for my bedroom wall and I think he might have a set. I'll poke around and see if he has anything useful.

I'll ask my Dad if he knows of one of yours around as he'd know alot of the car guys in Sligo. What bits are you looking for apart from the shell?

Fair play most people don't bother with old cars, you should send in pics to Wheeler Dealers you never know what they'd have lying around ;)

The interior is the one thing i am stuck for as the interior that was in this car is well and truly history might have a look and see what modern cars seats will fit

My hubby was just looking at your car. He says Black leather seats from a Saab 900 or Saab 9000 should fit it with a small bit of modification.

He also says you can get replica seats online fairly cheaply.
Best of luck with it :)
