They look the same as yours based on the rollover pressing. I'll start hunting around for Mk1 Granada.

When I was restoring my AMR car I nearly bought an entire Mk1 Transit to get the inner wheel arches. Eventually I found a fella who sold obsolete panels who had some new ones. The wonders of the internet!

32 Euro in postage later my German car mag showed up today, no detail pics of suspension. Anyone want a German car mag? Lovely pics of lightweight E-type.

Based on these pics (you'll need to zoom) the arches are not from a Grenada.

Jeff at Xpress panels is having a look as well.

Scroll down on this page to the picture of the boot with the fuel pumps. Even the Gp5 Zak escort used these same inner wheel arches.

Terrence, according to these pics the Mk2/3 inner wheel arch is the same as the Mk1 Capri (lower pic in my post).

http://www.restore-a-ford.co.uk/RB_Mk33S.html

The 'evolution in production' Mk2 bodyshell wasn't produced until 1974, the Mk1 RS3100 sold alongside it.

Please post pics of what you have.

Ric Wood says he spoke to a man in Germany who says the inner tubs on the Cologne Capris and Zakspeed Escorts are from the German P5 Ford Taunus. Looks like I'll be overheating Google to find a pair of them!

No luck with Taunus inner wheel arches. If anyone has any ideas I'd really appreciate it. Would really hate to put fabricated inner arches in a mint car like this but they are available for Escorts.

I recently read that there was only ever one Broadspeed Capri and it was written off, does anyone know for sure?

Yes the Broadspeed Capri was written off at Silverstone in 73, I was driving along side it when it went end over end. They dumped the shell back in the paddock and then a JCB dumped the engine back where it sort of should be. That was not repairable and Matthews was lucky not to loose his life.

As I recall it, the Broadspeed Capri was destroyed at the British Grand Prix meeting at Silverstone in 1973 also involving Dave Brodie's Norman Reeves Escort, and Gavin Booth's Mini, which was being lapped at the time.

The Broadspeed Capri was significantly different from a Cologne car, having all kinds of trick suspension.

Thanks.

What then was Vince Woodman's car that JD Classics list as a 1975 (??!!) Broadspeed Capri RS3100?

http://www.jdclassics.co.uk/Brands-H...-Festival-2012

The RS3100 didn't exist until 1974, further down this page there is a picture of an RS2600 that was involved in the Silverstone accident and it says there were two of them. Possibly three Broadspeed Capris in total or maybe more?

AFAIK the Broadspeed RS3100 Capri that Vince recently sold was only one of that designation and specification built outside of Cologne. However it may have been an RS2600 Broadspeed car upgraded to GAA, side radiators, later bodywork etc?

JD Classics, as said, are now custodians of the iconic car and may have all that history documented.

Note the inner wheel arches on the racer have been replaced, probably with something from the Ford parts bin in 1973. My 1967/8 Allan mann escort built by Gomm used Transit inner wheel arches so I know this was relatively common practice.

Can anyone identify the inner arches in the pic?



These are P5 and may be able to get a pair of used but wont be cheap as my man needs to cut a car up....

If your interested PM me
