1970 Estate

Recommended Posts

Got myself a 1970 Estate saturday, One of two registered in Sweden. Good condition, runs but dont stop, needs brake work. Problem (or not?) is that it has a very American style roof rack. Shall I leave it on or get rid of it? It is screwed to the roof panel, some 20 screws meaning some 20 holes...

just my opinion but I don't think the roof rack looks to out of place as roof racks go, would involve a lot of work to put the roof right if you do decide to remove it.  looks in lovely condition and like the colour too!! 😊

+1 for the roofrack, I like that and it makes the car pretty unique I suspect

Another person for the looks good brigade both the roof rack and the car, it isn't a Granada roof rack as l have a 2.8i Ghia Estate, but it is of similar design.
