Haha k so the fbt sitting on the front was a big hint then?

I'm guessing these are fairly rare? AR the from a fairlane or fairmont? I had a search and only brought up a thread about a nl fbt but with out pics

FBT are rare in deed. FBT stands for Fairlane by Tickford, thus it is a Fairlane with Tickford enhancements...so only a handful (relatively speaking) of these cars exist on the road. Even if you manage to find one...you'll be burning a hole in your pocket for something small...

From what i can remember the FBT grille insert was around $700, but it is now no longer available. Weather or not 'new old stock' is available, i'm not sure.

There was one of these on Ebay last week, only the insert, not the surround . You just have to keep your eyes open.

Hey guys, sort of still on topic... could anyone confirm whether this is a nf or nl grill? I thought it was nf but i wasn't completely sure.

Cheers,

Pat
