Early Mk3 cortina parts needed

Recommended Posts

I've finally started my restoration work on my January 1971 GT but am on the look out for some parts. So, would anyone have any of the following..

 

An early boot lid for either a GT or base model. (I have several XL,GXL, 2000E boot lids but the holes are in the wrong place).

 

Front sub frame lower suspension arms and the long bolts (mine are missing)

 

The sound deadening from behind the dash

 

The sloping dash

 

The metal fuel pipe that runs along the front of the car below the radiator.

 

A set of the original steel Mk3 GT wheels (I believe they're 5.5J)

 

I live in Berks so would need things posting if not local to me and also have very limited funds so can't afford much.....

I have the complete metal dash in black and if you have a higher spec bootlid to swop with me that will be great. My car is a 1300 base and has minimal badges on the bootlid.

That sound good, yes I'll happily swap boot lids and how much are you looking for the dash ? Only down side I can see is your not local to me though.. St Helens is quiet a journey from me...

Browns not a problem as I can spray it black anyway... How much are you looking for it and would you post it ?

Thanks for that but I'm going with FKLGLS as he has the boot lid I need as well.

RIght, now have the boot lid and dash sorted but am still looking for the following

 

The sound deadening that goes up behind the dash

 

A pair of front lower suspension arm/ wishbones with the long bolts

 

The metal fuel pipe that runs along the front of the car below the radiator.

 

An orginal set of 5 steel 5.5J GT wheels (would even consider a set of rostyle wheels from the Mk3)

 

Also thought of another item, my headlining has several tears so a good early Mk3 headlining too....

Yes, it would have done if it didn't have a webasto roof fitted. They moved it so it's now on the offside above the B post. The GT is a Jan 71 build and my GXL, which has all the early bits as well, is an April build :thumbup:
