I had my 1800 on the road last summer and put on some 400 miles. It is running very well but now I would like to start replacing some of the 40 year old parts. I have been slowly making some progress on getting parts including cross referencing some suspension parts that were used in the Ford Courier (idler arm and bushings) but I have now hit a wall. Some of the parts I am looking for include
-front brake rotors (I have two different ones on there now),
-shocks (front and rear), coils and connecting hardware,
-air filter (I even tried K&N to find something close by dimensions but no luck),
-original steering wheel (the sun literally disintegrated the plastic around the metal frame of the steering wheel I have on the car now),
-that stupid little part that you manually pull up or down to open or lock the doors (all of the aftermarket ones that I can find are the wrong thread size),
-any other of the thousands of small parts that maybe useful.

Any other vehicle I can cross reference parts from?

Many thanks if you can help.

Interesting thread!! :D

I'm also looking for all thinkable cross reference parts for my 1500!!

When it comes to the lock knobs and the steering wheel, I can help out ... The only thing is that I live in Norway, so shipping of the steering wheel may be higher than the value of the wheel!! :?

Hi KjetilB

I am very interested in what you may have. I am not worried about distance. I have a friend that is visiting his parents in Belgium this summer and could bring me back the parts. If the steering wheel is the right match let me know what you want for it. I would include a picture but I haven't figured out how to do that yet.

I would appreciate a list of the parts or part numbers that you have.

Thanks

I don't have so many parts that I need a list.
I can help You with a rather smooth original steering wheel, and I also have several used doors, with the lock knobs intact, and in good shape.
Belgium is south in Europe, I'm located far north ... We have to look into shipping to compare the cost both to Your place, and to Belgium... But of course, Your friend can take a trip up to Norway, and see our lovely nature! He wouldn't regret that trip! 8)
I'll post a pisture of only the steering wheel, but here is it still in the car:

That's it! Our interiors are an exact match. The steering wheel looks 99.9% better then the one I have. I would be very much interested in buying it from you. Perhaps we can do the rest of this by email. You can reach me at 4davewalsh@gmail.com.

Thanks so much. :D
