The problem we have during this time of year is trying to keep the customers cars dry and out of the rain. We shuffle things around in the workshops and work on what we need to. Some of these cars are not very water tight should we say as they are only ever out in the sun, the last thing we want is to have a mobile foot spa for our customers when they come to collect them.
We have just back a 1964 – ’65 Borg Warner T10 gearbox after a full rebuild. This T10 gearbox was later replaced by the now more familiar “Top Loader” which was used on most Fords from 1964 – ’73. These now very desirable gearboxes are becoming more difficult to be rebuilt correctly, however this gearbox now feels silky smooth and as good as the day it was made. Give us a call to get a quote and get it done properly.
A little while ago we mentioned the new ’66 Coupe i6 that is coming in for a full restoration. At the time the pictures had not been uploaded, but now they are all present and correct. So here is a selection of the car as she arrived. We have had a quick look at her and some work definitely needs to be done as you can see. We need to work out the owners budget on her and just how far this restoration needs to go. Some previous work has been undertaken prior to her arrival with us, like all these things we will need to establish the competency of that work before we start anything else. As we have said before, it can be done as we have proved many times here on this blog.
We have had a ’67 full body shell up for sale for a little while stored in our dry shed as we call it. A customer has seen it and bought it along with a donor vehicle from our stock. Obvious the body work on the donor car does not matter as long as the chassis is fine. So we are now making up the shell ready for paint. We will haves some photos soon of the shell with all the body panels fitter up. But here is a picture of the basic shell before we start any work on it. Next week we will have some pictures of the shell with full panels and gapped correctly ready for paint.
Our Classic Car Tax Discs:
We have had a sales run on our tax discs and now we have split them up into sections so they can be found much more easily on the WebShop.
It was pointed out that we were charging for the Postage and Packaging. This was an error when the system updated with the pictures and we have now correct it. The Postage and Packaging is FREE! now there is no reason not to get one. These Tax Discs would make a great stocking filler Christmas gift for any Classic Car owner. Due to the high interest we are now looking into producing more years 1969 – 1973 soon.
