Yes this is the real deal. No photoshop here. The car started its life as a four door.The owner claims that he made it into a LOTUS replica . So why not use a two door instead???? I just don't get it...... :evil:

It really depends on what you are looking for, I have found Miltons will ship to me in Canada but the shipping itself can be a bit steep, they want 36 Pounds Sterling to send me a pair of steering arms for Cortina MkII struts. http://www.dalek.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/105speed/Milton.pdf I haven't real...

Back the original issue about shipping for UK based e-bay sellers, I have found that it is quite common that UK e-bay sellers just don't want the bother or they charge way too much for shipping (not all of course, but quite few). There are also a number of US e-bay sellers that don't want to bother...

Jan I totally understand the liability aspect of this as it relates to a club or vendor. However, a private seller refusing to ship a radio is just being churlish. He has to go to the Post Office whoever buys it. Its final destination is of no consequence. That being said, if we didn't have jerks, ...

Brett if I could get a contact in the uk to buy parts from the 105E club or other business that would be sweet , but would they be willing to take the risk with all this insurance issues.

Pete you are correct. They have what they call insurance stipulation wish is a agreement. Agreement not sell anything to the USA. I was a member of that club many years ago.

Email the seller to ask him if he would ship item overseas and right off the back he replys and tells me ...

I ran into a web page called bendix radio foundation and they have a list of every car that came with a bendix radio from the 40s up to late 70s. And to my surprise they have the Anglia and cortina using the same bendix model 6bef radio in both cars. Even the service manual 2094486 are the same for ...
