classic ford wreckers

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...

Re: classic ford wreckers

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...

Re: classic ford wreckers

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.

I reckon you'd to well to browse www.falcongt.com.au. Brochures on what they have are here: http://www.falcongt.com.au/PRICELIST.html. Not cheap, but if you're after concours stuff, worth a look.

Re: classic ford wreckers

if it's an early xb with the big chrome buckles, try fairlanes as well. there was a thread in here about rewebbing. i know of a couple of classic era wreckers but they're in townsville.

Hehe, I started the thread. We found someone to do it.

So the quality of the belt is no biggie as I have one to get redone, I might as well finish off the set.

Hmm...
