A lot wrong with this but possibly saveable if the body has little rust - everything else is potentially fixable but it will need a LOT of work to get right.

Pricey as it stands but if someone offers half the asking...

Yes, very pricey. This car is also on BAT at the moment, I often find the comments made below the actual article to be entertaining to read, have look here.

Makes Pratt's cars look like a bargain.

Mustang II rear axle is a straight swap for Cortina/Anglia?

No. Mustang ii is the same as Pinto and we had to narrow them to fit on our V8 Cortinas. We've done this before. Pintos have on offset diff so if you can find 2 Shorts sides and weld it all up it will fit. My Morris has a Toyota truck axle. Prolly fit a Cortina, too.

Should have said Pinto/MII is 57" wide.

Is that 57 from the outside or axle housing end?? Just for comparison I took these shots of my Cortina Mk1 and a Anglia 105e axles when I had them apart.

Which one Gary? The Toyota axle - I just had the Cortina axle rebuilt when it smithereened - due to age and previous abuse more than anything and since the S2000 engine only puts out 150ish torques way up the rev range and I don't drop the clutch so...

I do have an axle from an RX7 with the correct ratio and an LSD but I dunno if I want to go that route - and I can't find a Mustang 11/Pinto V6 rear locally...

57" is width including drums. I am not sure what truck my axle is from but was from an early 80s version. Here is a good link for you,
