JBA FALCON, 2lt Pinto, 1972 Ford Cortina doner.
TAXed Dec 2013, MOTed Dec 2013.
I got this car about 18 months ago from a garage where it had sat for several years with a very sad 3lt V6 fitted.
I replaced this with a Pinto 2lt and 4 speed gearbox and got it to MOT standard.
The original log book or V5 read "FALCON ", "2 axle rigid body", "2994cc", "yellow", "PLG", No of seats "2".
I took this V5 to DVLA with the new details and to be up-dated to "historic vehicle". A tax disc was issued and the V5 sent off.. The V5 was returned reading "Ford Falcon" and no other changes. I corrected the details and took the V5 to my local DVLA office they stamped it and sent it off again. It was returned with the same details but now said "disabled " tax!!!!! Again I returned the V5 to my local DVLA office. I was then told to projuce the original V5. I pointed out they had it when I first sent it off. They said they would check it. The V5 was returned a few weeks later with the details still the same but with "historic vehicle" tax!!
I left it there the winning bidder can A, drive it as it is, as I have done or B, persue DVLA or C, go down the IVA route.
Overall the car is built to a good standard but still need some input such as a paint job, door check straps, the heater finishing ect nothig to taxing.
The roof is in good condition but is a very poor fit around the window see photo.
The car starts runs and drives but, the speedo is not working (cable), the fuel garge reads full all the time (sender) and the temp gauge reads hot after a few mins but the rad feels cool, I suspect water pump, because of this I have only done a few local trips of a few miles and would recommend it being collected on a trailer and not risk a long journey home.
There is a new cam belt, cam belt tensioner, and new water pump included in the sale.
Being sold to fund a camper project!.
