this was on ebay for the past couple of weeks. not looking to bad from the pics but i think you need to fully check the car over before spending big money! inner/outer sills, rear turrets, front turrets, bulkhead, floor pans, rear arches etc. make sure the cars structually sound before throwing good money after bad :)

what colour was the car originally? as i think UTs should be left in their original colour, so get it resprayed to its origianl state :D

good luck with it, no doubt i'll be chatting to u soon round the internet about it hehe

Definitely. Or at least get it sprayed a fiat colour, getting it sprayed a ford colour is sacrilage!

Looks good though.

was origanlly red as the pic of engine bay shows, but i want black and i love fords panther black, maybe even vauxhall's arden blue/diamond black.. we'll see. the rear drivers side strut top had completely rotted through and the strut had broken away from the arch but i had that welded back up 2 days ago and is now proper solid :D front turrets are twin skinned and the first layer has rusted but the second layer is still solid as new. the roof however thats rotten as when your driving and hit a bump, rust rains on you :bang: :bang: :cry:

get the front turret sorted now mate, and i mean that! cos it wont take long for the water to settle in and rot the 2nd layer through and then it'll cost u soooo much!

the roof, well, if u know a really good bodyshop, then u can get a new roof skin put on.

nice car tho! i'd personally get it sprayed red again mate and get the original bumpers, but its ur car and will still look mint in black! :D good stuff

As far as I can tell (was on car when bought) it is just a standard grill with the strips removed and smoothed over painted up and meshed :)
