    Aussie 4dr RS2000 project

    They only sold 2400 RS2000s in Australia. Numbers of 4 door cars were about the same as 2drs but many of the 2dr cars were thrashed and crashed so generally the 4drs are more common and in better condition if unrestored. The 2dr cars are always the one people want. Sent from my SM-A520F using Tapatalk

    Aussie 4dr RS2000 project

    I might still bring it out and restore it for myself. I could never afford a local RS2000 and it's mechanically (minus a few bits) the same car which is all I care about. Good to get some feedback though. Sent from my SM-A520F using Tapatalk
  3. I have a rare 4dr RS2000 back in Australia that I am planning on shipping back to the UK. By the time it lands it will owe me about £5000. Needs a total restoration but is complete so no chasing of parts will be required other than normal repair sections. Just gauging interest as to the viability to ship or may end up selling in Australia. Would just be looking to get back my costs so could be a cheap and unique RS project for someone in the UK (I only know of 2 Aussie RS2000s in the UK) Not too fussed if it sells or not but interested in thoughts of other forum members. More pics on request. Sent from my SM-A520F using Tapatalk
  4. I am finally back in the UK and have a postal address in Derbyshire. Over the last 8-9 weeks it looks as though there is more demand for parts in the country than in Australia it seems. Having said this, I am probably looking at bringing out my stocks of parts out here over the next year. The first shipments will start in October when I ship my Mk 1 Escort Van. If you are struggling to get good 2nd hand parts it might pay to drop me a message with a list of stuff you are chasing and a contact number. I am building a bit of a database with names and numbers of people restoring cars. Hopefully having this list will allow me to deal directly with buyers direct rather than to have to go thru eBay and Retards Club and the like to advertise parts as I locate them. PM for more details or search me on Retards Club pintopunter UK Sent from my SM-A520F using Tapatalk
  5. I've only been on this site for a few days but it's interesting to get a perspective into other folks opinions. Comparing it to where I have come from (Australia) it's a bit of an eye-opener into "what's the done thing." I'm of the school of thought where it's all or nothing. Completely standards or flat out bonkers. Things start to look wrong if it's 1/2 way between one and the other. Here's my Mk 1 van compared to my track day Capri. Intentions are obvious.

  6. I have a 20ft shipping container full of parts that I have collected over the last 20 years in Australia. Most of the parts are surplus from various projects. I was planning on selling them off in Australia when I get back there in February but after reading a few ads and checking out some of the prices people are asking, I am seriously thinking of shipping the lot out here to sell. If anyone is chasing any parts and are struggle to find them, send me a PM and I will try and help out. I can't check if I have exactly what you want until February but if you leave some contact details in the message, I will get back to you when I can. Cheers GLENN Sent from my SM-A520F using Tapatalk

    £800!!! Seriously? Do you people realise you can buy reproduction lens for under 50 quid and a bottle of polish for £5.....No one (other than a complete anarak) will ever know. It's a Ford not a Ferrari. Sent from my SM-A520F using Tapatalk

    I see on local eBay you can pick them up for about £10k.....Seriously, that's cheap. V8 Holdens are highly collectable in Australia. There is no way you would get one for that in Australia and then be able to import it for less....Maybe a high mileage 6 cylinder but they are rare. Sent from my SM-A520F using Tapatalk
