x2 Genuine ford front valance inc. under headlight strip

Post by vp-reynolds4 » Tue Mar 29, 2016 10:19 am

Just as the title and photos. I've become ever so lucky to be in the presence of not just one but two of these daft rare parts. Story is:

Up at my parts yard picking over a new steering rack. Got chatting with the dude and turns out everything is being sold or scrapped.
(soon I'll post photos of the yard so everyone gets a chance at the parts).
He offered me one valance for £40!! But I refused and told him they're worth so much more. He has done me more than a favour over the years letting me salvage his parts for my own end so I'm returning the favour. The dude literally lives in a shack of a house, you'd not believe it. I know the value of these so I cant offer my usual freebees but I'm after some decent money so I can send something good his way.

Remember there are TWO of these, identical, immaculate and genuine ford.
Photos are my own taken in my small ass kitchen So you know what your getting.
Sorry I cant say what I'd like for them I feel cheeky putting one of those high price tags on them being such a good forum.
Anyone has a chance of getting one so make me an offer via message. I'm not going to be choosing the highest offer like a bidding war. I'll take the most reasonable offer from somebody that would really benefit from and genuinely use these on the road!

I'll offer £200 for one as mines fooked. However I know isn't enough and only a mad man wouldn't take highest "bid"

I believe you can get brand new fibreglass ones at a reasonable price, if that's any help to keep you and your car going.

I think the original items referred to have probably gone now.
(BTW Paul, my first thought was `No More Heroes` by the Stranglers.... Oh how wrong I was!!!)

I got a fibreglass one on mine as at the time the steel ones were £800+ and I couldn't justify it. The fibreglass one was half of that and has worked a treat - fitted perfectly and one less thing to rust!!

Tickover now have them for £112+VAT

I expect those OE ones are a bag of sand ( a grand for non southerners!) each now.
