Work Completed: Replaced dented pattern front wings with original second-hand units. Resprayed whole body in Dark Highland Green. Replaced lower control arms on front suspension due to worn bushes and ball joints. Replaced rear drum brakes. Refurbished power steering system. Upgraded the dashboard panels to factory deluxe spec. New wheels & tyres and various chrome trim items including bumpers. Purchased and sprayed but did not install rear trim panel; left in the boot for new owner to decide on fitting it.
Notes: Purchased in Southern California. Car was desirable ‘A Code’ vehicle (289-4V engine). Originality reduced by re-spraying different colour, changing wheels and adding non-original parts. Brought to Salisbury Plain after restoration for Mike and Edd to re-enact a Hollywood police chase scene (with Edd driving a Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor).
