Rare indeed

I've been looking for one for yonks and picked one up on Ebay last week. I dont know how to upload pictures but here is the link to the Ebay advert:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI....60020459399&rd=1&sspagename=STRK:MEWN:IT&rd=1

I love the shape of these cars and am really chuffed with the car as its got really good history and is surprisingly clean. I need a cer clip for the drivers side door handle though. I will pop into a classic car supplier next week and see if I can locate one!

Cheers:cool:

What a stunner.! They always reminded me of the MK3 Cortina.!

For parts, Try searching eBay for NOS Vauxhall parts, you may get lucky.!

Rekord update

Thanks for that useful information and for posting a really good picture of my car. Update is that I am considering fitting a 3.0 V6 manual gearbox engine from an Omega to this car along with a full restoration. I have bought the Omega, an ex-police car.

I am usually pretty fanatical about originality of classics but in this case the car model is not a special one such as a GS or GSE and the replacement I am considering is a Vauxhall one.

Plan is to paint it black, keep the interior as original as possible, but refit the seats with black leather, and fit some nice retro type wheels which will look good on the car such as Ronals.

I love my car because from the back she looks like a baby late 60's Dodge Challenger (like the one from Bullitt), and from the front somewhat similar to an Escort Mk1 with the rectangular headlights.
