New parts update…
Those who visit our blog and website know the huge amount of stock we hold for these classic cars. New items are made and we get a supply of them, they then sometimes stop production again for a while and the parts become difficult to get for a while. We have been reliably informed that these companies make a batch of parts at a time when the demand is there to save their costs. this approach is fair enough and makes economic sense, but doesn’t always help the stockists or the customers, so we get our hands on what we can. However our web page takes a little time to get the correct catalogue part numbers, pictures and prices on the order pages so you can buy them online. As a result we are now going to try a process to help out. Where a new stock line that comes in that is worth the special mention, we will post it on this blog FIRST! Of course we are not talking about posting every nut, bolt and clip we get in, that would mean we would be posting everyday if we did. The more significant items we would choose would be such things like radiators, brake boosters, steering racks, glass, lights, engines, panels, bespoke parts etc.
What we hope to achieve here is the rapid response to our stock which you can call and ask for details on delivery and prices. It may take a week or two before the same items appear on our online stock pages. We hope this new process will move us with the times and as a result will appear on our Facebook pages and Twitter too so you won’t miss out. We will also post them under our (new) title menu called “New Stock Parts”, these will be small pages of photos (just unboxed or unwrapped) along with a quick description within their categories, we may have to add more categories of course in order to help you find them. If there is anything you want us to announce to the world just drop us an email and we will see what we can do for you. Customers may be on the lookout for particular items and this would mean you don’t have to wait as long for new parts. We shall see how it goes!
Please, let us know what you think of our new process.
We had a large order arrive this week and we now have some new lines in stock, some are on a trial basis to see how they sell others will be our regular lines.
These radiators are top quality with the original look of the rounded top. We have also got a more basic model in as part of the range.
Oil Sumps for 289 – 302ci:
These quality sumps have arrived at long last and we now have them in stock in Ford blue, black and bare metal. We also got a supply of some high performance oil sumps which have the oil compartmentalized to avoid oil pick up failure.
A selection of third-party dual reservoirs have arrived, these are in full chrome finish, or the option of the see through plastic top like modern-day spec vehicles. A couple of these have already gone from our stock!
C4 Auto Gearbox:
These gearboxes have been reconditioned to our highest standards, with new machined replacement parts inside that allow the gears to be fully aligned for that smooth gear change you expect as if fresh from the factory. We have fitted a number of these units now and everyone of them has been spot on with no issues at all. We also have the fully reconditioned torque converters as well to go with these gearboxes. Fantastic product for a very (very) reasonable cost.
