This week we had a couple of real nice guys from Ford Motor Company UK pay us a visit. They were after some parts for a little project they have on the go, all of which will be revealed next year. We obviously know what it is now, but it’s not for us to say. However, we can say that the wait will be worth it. We did find it quite surreal that Ford (Motor Company UK) are getting some parts from us for their cars here in the UK. We welcome trade enquiries as it were and I hope we will be doing some more business with them too. All the best with the project guys.
The weather has remained good at the yard and we have managed to give back some cars to their loving owners. We have decided to do a bit of spring cleaning and make some space (again) for yet more stock that we had from the “Barn Finds“. We had another of our lock up garages open and spotted a similarity by accident of a picture we had taken earlier, our modern classics are a bit dusty to say the least and boxed in, literally. There are gearboxes, boxes of parts and stuff that we couldn’t find a few days ago that we put in there a few weeks ago. We decided that it will be time get the wax out and spring clean some Shelbys up, then give them a blast down the road, just because we should. They looked pretty sorry for themselves all covered in dust, they could almost be our own barn finds in fact. The photos, there is the Old School Classic Shelbys and the New Generation Shelbys and people are a little divided on the choice. Given the choice what would have?
We have had a very nice ’71 Mach1 come into us this week for a little TLC to sort a couple of little issues out. Not often you get to see a genuine good conditioned Mach1 and we have added plenty of photos of this one on our Customer Cars – ’71 Mach1 or click here for the hyper link.
The ’66 Coupe full restoration has had another good day on her when the owner came down to work on the clean up. We told him that as he was our “volunteer apprentice”, no electrical tools allowed. I’m sure we see his bottom lip quiver and tears well up. The reason being we wanted to see exactly what we are dealing with and sometimes mechanical tools don’t always help to be fair. Towards the end of the day when the under seal and everything else had been stripped away, we did use a few tools on some test patches to see what the metal was like under the rust. Quick link here.
We hope to have a nice update on the KR Replica next week!
