Firenza body and grille wanted

Post by V8 fan » Tue 12 Jan 2016, 19:40

Hi there gents.

I believe it has been asked before but I thought I'd refresh the question.

Is there perhaps anyone out there who can help with a decent looking Firenza body with not too much rust on it. The body can be smashed as we're only looking for some areas.

Gavin, perhaps you should load the photos of those areas you're after. :D

The only thing I would want is the grille and a spare windscreen. The spare grille I have was cut for some weird reason. :?:

Not sure if this helps. Been standing on the road for years. Looks hand painted. You can "google street view" for more info.

Tx Orange.

Do you think you can get someone to go have a look to see how rusted the parts that I want are, Gert?

Here are photos of body parts that I am looking for. Most will need to be cut out and welded into mine, which are either damaged or have some rust. I would rather replace with original pieces that have no rust than do a "rust repair" job.

If I cannot find, I may have to make use of a metal fabricator to make for me.

Hey Gav

I don't really know anybody down there anymore but will ask my father if he could check it out on his next trip to Cape Town.

Perhaps we can find the owner and check whether he can make a donation :lol:

Hmmm, thanks Ters, just a little far for me...perhaps Gert knows someone close by who could help out.

Have sent PM.
