    • Photo’d this Mk1 Capri waiting patiently - maybe an OSF user?
    • Cheers, Huge. Yes, life has a habit of getting in the way of our plans.... Mrs Jimbonic will be interested/amused/flabbergasted at the suggestion of me and emotion!  😊
    • After much soul searching, I have decided to sell my Mk2 Cortina to fund a more family-friendly project. It is a 1300 Deluxe 4-door with bench front seat. It used to be an automatic, which might explain the bench seat. The previous owner converted it to manual, using a cable clutch – basically because they had a Capri lying about! Other than that, it is pretty much standard 1300 Cortina. I have spent the last 18 months slowly renovating with the intention of it being weekend family / fun transport. While under my ownership, I have fitted the following: - New radiator & hoses - New water pump - Exhaust manifold - NOS exhaust (except back box) - New plugs - New leads - New Sparkrite high energy coil - New choke cable - New Aldon electronic ignition - New inertia reel seat belts (4x) plus lap belt for middle rear - New electric windscreen washer - New fuel pump and filter - New tie rod (O/S) It drives and stops. I was driving it locally pre-lockdown, much to the, erm, amusement of my daughters! The strut tops look solid. There is some rust around the O/SR wheel arch, as well as some other, smaller patches here and there. The heater doesn’t work – I’ve not investigated why yet, but it doesn’t leak. The speedo needs connecting properly – I was saving that job until later on. I have almost certainly forgotten something, so just ask. I had a (sporadic) thread running for the slow build. I’ll add a link, for interest.   Asking £3800 Location: Surbiton, Surrey     My intention had been to build it up over a fairly lengthy period with a few modifications along the way. So, I also have a reasonable haul of spares in my shed, which I will either sell separately or could be included with the car for the right price: -        1200 gearbox (with pudding stirrer gear stick) ex-Anglia 105E, I think -        Bellhousing -        1600E rear leaf springs -        1600E/GT exhaust manifold -        Std cast manifolds (I think I have two spare) -        1600E/GT inlet manifold -        28/36 DCD Weber carb with service kit (except filter) -        Throttle linkage -        New front coil springs (-2”) -        Steering box -        Variety of steering components -        Exhaust back box -        Clutch master cylinder -        Original (non-inertia reel) front seat belts -        Few odds & ends: speedo circlip, engine bay decals (1300GT), Mk3 Cortina propshaft(doesn’t fit the Mk2!)
    • I think people like to see other people's projects. I know when I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed by the project, looking at other people's projects , helps to get back on track😀
