  1. Yes it is good knowledge as it is made from my own observations over many years around cars I have owned myself and cars I have seen with my own eyes in Sweden, Finland, Norway, various other european countries and UK. Not any hear say, rumors or myths. And alot of nerding around decoding VIN plates.
  2. Fitted new wheels to it to get the right look before I started to use it. Runs fine now after some mechanical issues. The car has been in a museum for a year and a half, got it out 3 weeks ago must say I missed it!
  3. What parts do you need? Maybe I can help you.
  4. Thanks. Yes it is a good and honest car. It is month K June -64
  5. Found this very solid -64 up north, unwelded shell but has some dents and dings. Off the road since 2001. No salt on the roads up there and dry climate. Spent a couple of days and got it MOTd for the last time. Took it for a 1500 km holiday drive without any surprises.
  6. Well, not a lot, I will ask my friend that saved it years ago. But what I do know is that my friend never ran the car just took it away from a farm where it had been for many years. I get back when I have talked to him. Must say it is very nice to see it went to a good home. We tried to advertise it here but nobody else but the Essex guy replied. Pic I inserted was a cople of weeks after the car was out of the barn!
  7. Not all export cars had reinforcements, (heavy duty) shells, for example here in sweden they did not. Norway had it on the pre facelift ones, facelift cars had no hd shell but the casted TCA's and sump guard that got binned at first oilchange. Norway Mk2's also had HD shells in most cases, in sweden only the -66 built Mk2 was HD. Most HD mk2's both here and in Norway was not built in Dagenham they had the CN code in the VIN for Netherland production.
  8. Never was in a barn, it was on a lawn... Swedish reg started with E and part of VIN is 777, correct? Off the road since 1989.

  10. Its not called export spec, its called heavy duty.
  11. Looking for a set of aluminim dash trim pieces for a early 1962-1963 Consul Cortina deluxe. Must be from a RHD car please. No radio cut outs or extra holes please. Like this: https://images.app.goo.gl/iHhcevfnmesQdQ4r5
  12. O yes, they are not the best quality, I have experienced the same. Had a urgent need for a set a couple of weeks ago. This time there are no (what do you call it) reinforcement wires in them, have fear that they will go baloon if hot. I have come across a company in Taiwan that make REALLY nice hoses in small series, smallest order is 20 units. I am collecting NOS hoses and will go forward with a order to them in a near future when I have a full set of hoses. Will do all for Mk1 and Mk2 eventually.
  13. Thank you all! Alot less work leaving the rack on! 💤 I just have to get used to it. Will sort the brakes asap and get it MOTed for the last time. A big show coming up here first weekend in august we will attend, got have it ready by then!
  14. Interior is ok but not top
