    What now, are they good or need paint/powder-coating? Have you got nuts to go with them?
  2. John Mack


    That sounds about right. I was thinking similar. That first link for the e-bay ones isn't that far off the mark I suppose?

    Very nice set here...… https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-Cortina-Ghia-Mk4-Mk5-13x5-5j-Alloy-Wheels-Capri-Escort-Fiesta-Mk1-Mk2-Mk3/173645033461?hash=item286e0ceff5:g:wewAAOSwgVJb7y2u:rk:8:pf:0 …..or 2 here if you can collect.... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-cortina-ghia-alloy-wheels-tyres/183630561526?hash=item2ac13c00f6:g:CF8AAOSwe9VcN8RG:rk:2:pf:1 What are Ghia wheels worth these days?

    The Doctor has a MK5 2.3 for sale.

    A better ad than the Doc's maybe?! Nice looking car, I personally wouldn't let the MOT history put me off....but it does give you an idea as to what bits of the car need a thorough inspection.

    It is a shame really, proper pictures would attract proper interest? Some car dealers show great pictures that WILL sell a car, I myself have bought cars without actually seeing the car in the flesh/metal...………..the Doc's pictures look good as art-work, but I suspect they're not a true perspective of the actual item for sale?

    I had it in my head that the recessed bits were "dove grey" in colour.....same as RS 4-spokes? Anyone?...………..

    Pretty sure it's Girling calipers on my car.....is it safe to assume it'll be a Girling type M/C that I need?? Or does it matter? Cheers.
