Postby gasmark1 » Thu Oct 28, 2010 12:13 am

new on here.have a look at my car ive had it a year and stripped to chassis.ive replaced engine and box,all new poly bushes,wheel bearings,brakes,rad,cooling fan,steering column,prop shaft,track rod ends,top and bottom ball joints,trunions,front shocks.ive also replaced all the gauges but now im stuck with what to do with the bonnet.it was fitted with a 6 pot triumph when i got it but was so bad it wouldnt run for more than 10 mins without fouling the plugs with oil so i put a 2L 205 block pinto in out of a 87 granada with 5 speed type 9 box and a 38DGAS.chassis no P1007.

For a second there we thought we had found another P1 but yours is a Phaeton, actually the initial clue was the triumph engine as the P1 were tiny and a straight six or Pinto wouldn't fit in one apparently. it looks like an S1 from what i can see, but could be a modified S2, will be easy to to tell if you post pictures of the rear end and suspension of your car.

Welcome to the forum. Looks good mate, a lot of hard work gone in there, well done. :) What paint did you use for the chassis?
What is your location?

Cheers Paul.
