This seller has some interesting panels.

Only thing I can think is maybe they altered a mk2 ?.....seems a load of work for their profit.

It's these guys i think judging by the ebay user name.

Their name used to crop up a lot, they were/are well known for their manafacture of mk1 cortina panels etc when no one else made them

they seem to sell a lot of old panels, so I think they might be having a clear out

Sure do..... I remember seeing their name crop up quite a lot in fast ford mags's etc

old school metal shapers, i would imagine their panels will require a fair bit of fettling
