Mk3/4/5 Front Crossmember + Suspension wanted

Recommended Posts

I've just removed the Cortina based front suspension assembly out of my kit car and found that it's in a really bad state. The crossmember is rusted through by the N/S lower wishbone mount and everything else is so badly seized or rusted it's not worth the effort of rebuilding. Ideally, I'd like to find another sound crossmember with suspension that's worth stripping down and rebuilding or a good one that's ready to go on the car. It doesn't matter if it's a MK3, MK4 or a MK5 . My front hubs/discs/calipers are ok, as is the rack so it doesn't necessarily need to have those. Thanks

Sorry can't help with the front clip but would like to see photos of the car.  Should be a good looking 1930's style car if I remember right

By a stroke of luck someone put me onto a sound MK3 front subframe with suspension that was rebuilt some time ago for another type of kit car. It never got registered so most of the ball joints etc are as new. My kit car is a Madison and uses mostly Cortina running gear - small pic for those that are interested. Thanks
