    Thank you 🙂 I should have mentioned before, the reel is mounted up under the metal shelf, passes through a plastic guide and up and over the rear seat. You can just about see it in the final photo. The back rest of the seat is packed forward very slightly to give a little space for the belt to slide through. In all honesty it makes the belt slightly slow to retract (kinda period!) but operates fine the way it's meant to. I could possibly pack it forward a touch more to improve it. The whole idea for me was that it could all be returned to standard easily if need be and that I could actually take the kids out in it relatively safely.

    Well hello folks and maybe goodbye for now too, i’m selling my 1973 2 door GT. 94,630 miles. It’s a good honest car, 2dr GT’s are getting hard to find now. It passed its mot on the 18th June 2020, i had an advisory on rear brake imbalance so fitted new cylinders both sides. Front callipers Rebuilt (by Bigg Red) with stainless steel pistons. HEL stainless braided flexi’s front & rear 2.0 pinto with electronic ignition (sierra dizzy) Twin choke 32/36 weber 4 branch GT exhaust manifold 5 speed Type 9 gearbox Atlas 3.75 diff. Gaz adjustable rebound dampeners front and rear (will come with original shocks) Polybushed almost everywhere front and rear ARBs (handles, stops and goes very well) Heated rear window Original interior (aftermarket gearknob) All gauges/interior light etc work Electric fan (via fused relay) operated with a genuine mk3 pfl dash switch to look standard. Halogen lamps. Fairly recent new carpet / belts no speaker holes in doorcards and rare factory blanking plate for radio Although it is wired to accept a modern iso plug stereo (All fused) Both doors, boot, ign and even the locking glove box work off one key, there’s also a spare key. Filler cap is locking and a nice original one but only one key for that. I know the boot spoiler and wheels might not be to everyones taste so I have a set of original sports steel wheels for it and (Dep on the price) a set of 1600E rostyles too. I also have a very good boot lid to go with it. It is a lovely car, its not perfect/concourse but it is very solid and does look great, it is very reliable. I had any structural work done by a classic specialist a few years back and it cost a small fortune. I later had some small bits at the back of the sills to inner arches done where i asked the restorer to put sill bungs back in so you can access down there to cavity wax and replace the bungs afterwards. All the factory jacking points are there and solid although i always use a trolley jack on the axles. The floor under the carpet is absolutely superb, see the last photo. If you need more pics (i have vids i can prob email too) just give me a shout. I am happy to negotiate on price/parts just let me know and hopefully we can settle on a price that suits. I really would prefer the car goes to a cortina enthusiast. I’ll prob get another, poss a backie or estate in a few years as i’ve never owned either of those but for now I fancy something modern while my son is quite young. £13750 ono

    Sadly due to a sudden change in circumstances and a loss of workshop space, I’ve had to list the above for sale on ebay which is a hateful place to try and sell anything. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-Cortina-MK5-Restoration-Project/203034048518?hash=item2f45c5b806:g:0JYAAOSwsJ1e-NjR You may well remember this belonged to Tibbsy on here / it does need a lot of welding - details are in the listing. I’m gutted at having to let this one go as I was determined to get going but sadly I’ve no real choice. I’d prefer it went to an enthusiast if possible. I paid £1300 last year and I’d like to try and get back as much as possible. Please message me if you’re interested or want any further info. Thanks. Mike.

    Hope that's ok - the small bracket to the pedal brackets is on the same plain as the top bracket , and also comes with a hole for the return spring to the brake pedal on the other side . cheers-Steve.
