75 Fairlane 500

Post by Vinkie » Tue 02 Sep 2008, 09:53

Hi,

I have a 1975 Fairlane 500 with a Ford Granada V8 gearbox. The car is a little shabby for various reasons and I would like to restore/repair it. I am currently looking for a gearlever for the gearbox (or even a complete Granada V8 gearbox). Furthermore I would like to get other spares as well. Who in South Africa are the best people to contact?

Appreciated

Here is what it used to look like.

Hi Vinkie, I am restoring Ford V8 cars for the last 30 Years. You can send a list of all the parts and I will see what I can do for you. I love your car, it is a rare colour for that model. Cheers Rassie.

Yep, did the same as Wally (same coloured body was complete), I think Rassie is your best bet. I can maybe source the orriginal gearbox of thias shape if your intrested.

Rassie, mooi man. Joune lyk presies soos myne.

My e-mail is VinkAD@yahoo.com

Ek het die kar vir 'n vriend gegee en hy het die ou laat verwaarloos.
Die column shift ratkas is deur die vorige eienaar uitgehaal en T5 ratkas ingesit. Dit was 'n moeilike ratkas vir die ou aan wie ek die kar wou verkoop. Toe probeer ons 'n Granada ratkas insit maar die gear shift is missing. Die koop het deur die mat geval en nou wil ek die kar regkry vir shows.

So, wat ek nou soek as eerste prioriteit is die gear lever of 'n kompleet floor shift outomatiese ratkas.
Tweede prioriteit is om die enjin reg te maak. Dis 'n 351 met 'n 4-barrel Holley.
Derde is die res soos die motors in die deure vir die vensters en die aircon, ens.

Thanks
Danie
