  1. Hi Guys, just thought I'd show my car once again, its been a while, its a bit of a sad moment because due to financial issues I might have to sell my this car. its been with me over 12 years and has all its Ford panels still intact, including all the floors sills and jacking points which can still take the weight of the car, the boot is like new as are the inner wings, original engine, carpets and I'd estimate 60% original paintwork, I'm trying to hold on to it at the moment, if I do have to sell it, I can't see my self ever being able to find one this original ever again, its been a great car and very reliable. I won't be giving it up without a fight.
  2. Hi Jim, I know the early Capri was based on a Cortina, so the box should be ok, its the seat that sounds wrong, you might find your car was converted from auto to manual at some point in its passed. (the joys of classic motoring :))
  3. I serviced my weber a few weeks back, it could be something simple, as it was working it can't be much, good luck Jim, if you need any more info from my book its no problem.
  4. I have looked in the manual here is what I found, firstly you seem to have to auto throttle linkage, not sure how that will work, here are some pics from the book. carb.pdfthrottle.pdf
  5. Dam, I know what its like struggling to get the niggles sorted, you can throw money at it for fun! I've had my 1600E for twelve years and I'm still working on it, nothing to dramatic, just the usual brake and steering stuff. I don't think I've seen a Cortina MK2 1300 at a show for years, they are like hens teeth these days, well worth saving. I hope you get it sorted soon, I have a Ford 1969 workshop manual for the MK2 if you need any technical drawing, diagram or text let me know, I can photo copy it and put it on the page. Good luck.
  6. Nice car, spot lights look good on the 2000E, I had a MK3 GT Daytona yellow with tomb stone seats, twin head lights.
  7. Lovely Anglia, wouldn't mind one myself.
  8. Very nice work, its going to be a cracker!
  9. Big task you have there, I'm impressed with your repairs they look well done, nice car too well worth saving not many GT's left.
  10. I love the Fiesta, one of the best driving Fords ever! good work though lot of crusty bits to sort out.
  11. Yes maybe but I have had the car since 2005 and this is the first time I have done anything with the ignition system, The distributor is electronic, off an early Fiesta XR2 I was told.
  12. Well she may be in great shape you never know with an MOT, but thank you.
