Yep, it's big luxury Ford style... recognisable by the automatic headlight covers... think of a 4 door Landau.
Photo's online soon.
It's gonna be a beauty when it's done
I would take a look at the timing cover. Its probably rusted through at the back of the water pump, this would be my first port of call. Head gasket us less likely. You will have fun pulling it off with the power steer and air.
Great cars though. I have a tropical gold Landau with parchment leather and brown vinyl roof. Still has the Col Page Ford Super Dog (Footscray) dealer sticker in the rear window. Needs a bit of work but I love it to bits. Goes like the clappers.
