I've been collecting bits for my engine for the last 5yrs. I still don't have everything yet. Then theres a bit of machining to do too. Mind you though, i have done the whole suspension setup, rebiult g'box, rebiult & change diff ratio, clutch, all the brakes, fuel system, put a new roof on ( the old one had a rust hole in it the size of my hand at the rear corner, and filled the centre console with water when it rained). Had to find another set of wheels for it, all of them (5) were buckled when i got it.
Its been a long road.

Its a 4/88 EA 'S' pack sedan. The rear windscreen was never glued in properly, you could push it out in the top corners to a gap of about 1/2".
I bought a brand new roof from ford ( about 4yrs ago) and at the time there were 17 remaining at ford in Melb. I fitted it myself.

Be careful doing that, you may end up with a seat width too wide, or the seats being concave/convexed. They don't seal too well like that under compression.

Dunno, you would have to put bearing blue on it to see how wide the seats are gonna be.
