yesterday I bought a NL tickford fairlane Ghia, from Melbourne, cam with Sports system, extractors, roller rockers, aftermarket Rocker Covers, and a few other bits,
I got it today from the Boat, and frove straight home and bolted on the 17's, fixed the door handle and put the tickford logo in the clock/trip computer,

I will add other stuff over the next few days,

I will also get some pics

It does have the same grill as my NF and the same factory NF wheels! Im not convinced its a NL mate. Might need to check the vin number plate, it will say if its a NL or a NF.

Here I was worrying you were messing with an NL fbt.
still a little confused though, I thought tickford didn't do an nf?

Otherwise nice looking ride, great colour, looks nice and clean, got leather or velour interior?

NF did come out as a tickford,
I have spoken to a few people about it, The work I planned for tonight did not happen, I was too stuffed after a long day,
I hope it will happen tomorrow, as it feels as the trans is slipping, so I hope to check that out as well, (just hope its not serious)

I will post more pics as they come

I'm guessing he means its got a tickford motor, which it should as it is a ghia.
I dont think he's saying its an FBT.

Interesting. Got some photos of the engine?
Only the EL GT got 200kw, the FBT was 195kw and definitely only came out in NL.
