I could really use some help in finding those last few parts. I've been to or rung pretty much all the wreckers that I could find for Ford in the yellow pages around Brissy but none of them have what I want.
Can you guys post some contact details of good wreckers that you know have classics in their yard and that are in the Brissy area?? I'm nearly for advertising in the wanted's section of local papers...
I'll be outa siiiiiggghhhtttt...
When I get my wheels, I won't even wave goodbye!
Clontarf Ford Wreckers, not sure of the number, but they're in Robson St, Clontarf, just around the corner from Redcliffe Dyno. Have heaps of old Foulcons in the yard, and their prices are no worse than anywhere else.
351C ZH MARQUISINATOR
Presenting, at great cost to management:
.020 over 351 Clevo, 10:1 comp, ported 302 heads, blueprinted and balanced, custom ground cam, Edelbrock intake, 600 Holley, K&N air filter, Custom Zip-Ties(tm), MSD ignition, Genie extractors, 2 x 2.5" exhaust, 2800rpm stally, rooted C4
A darkbrown standard steering wheel suitable for restor. and an original passenger side inertia seatbelt, both for an XB.
I wouldn't have thought either of them were 'rare' parts, but they're very hard to find!! at least, no-one that I have contacted has one.
I woulda thunk that most of those steering wheels are hanging in peoples sheds...
Don't Grand Tourer or someone like that carry "concours" quality belts? I'd be a bit dicey about using a 30 y/o seatbelt in a restored car. (having said that, mine are 30 years old... for the moment...
Yeah, I doubt wreckers are going to have a steering wheel like that, and the belts in the cars they've got will be beyond useless - open to the elements for the past few years, they'll be toast. Steering wheels - best place to look is keep an eye on eBay, I guess.
