    It really surprises me how good these things look with a nice bit of paint, dead stock but dropped 2 or 3 inches. Awesome!

    Sweet :) the colour's awesome. Steels look great, are they originals, repros or banded?

    Last pic is photoshopped as how I'd have it if it was legal to do so.
    Doesn't actually sit that low 
     
    It a matching number 1300 manual (originally auto).
    All done keeping to as much of the period/original look as possible.
    Mk2 2lt struts, brake/rack etc, anti dive.
     
    I will update with engine bay and interior pics when its closer to finished. Still to put a new rear parcel shelf and ash tray section in.
    Engine bay needs sports air filter removed in place of a Factory steel air cleaner etc.
     
    Wheels are banded I think? Two I had and two I sourced via Gumtree, 13x6 and 13x7, had them blasted and powdercoated.
     
    Scott it just ran out of rego but as soon I have a new exhaust on it (next 2weeks I hope) I will re-rego and hope to drive out to Small Ford Day.
     
    Thanks,
    Rhys
