No prob, I don't mind creative criticism. Yes, I have owned one 1977 Rolls Royce LTD. It was all original. Still had the "correct" Thermoquad fitted (correct as in the right part number for a 351 auto). It had the tramprods fitted, with the factory reinforcing hole in the rail. I ended up wrecking this out, and as I stated earlier, I am pretty sure I still have them somewhere.
I went through a stage where I wrecked out heaps of 70's Fords and kept all the "good" bits for myself, while selling all of the mainstream parts (engines, boxes, diffs, etc). I now have no room, and am slowly selling stuff that I don't need any longer (incl the RPO sedan). So, these rods will end up on ebay (if I still have them) with some other bits and peices.Last time I checked I had 2 or 3 sets left, and I am fairly certain the LTD ones are one of them.
It seems that I must of had something of a rare vehicle, as you have 9 of these vehicles, and none have the rods fitted, but my one vehicle did. Oh, and while I am remembering stuff from back then, I must say that none of the Fairlanes had them, even the 351 4Vs. I couldn't remember earlier, but I have since thought about it some more; lots of years ago and lots of cars....... On the subject of rare cars, I wrecked a ZH with 302, C4, 9"-factory.
