OranjYep. My dad was quite handy, I think you had to be with cars in those days, and replaced the sills on both sides. He also sprayed some sort of concrete mixture into bottom of the front wings to stop those rusting through. This did nothing for the woeful power-to-weight ratio, but it went downhill alright!

Wriggling SnakeIndeed, they cruised around like a canal boat. My mum put her foot straight through the floor, so my dad just filled it in, he coaxed it along for about 3 years, the body work was more filler than original...he then went mad and bought his Cortina!
Mind you that was Yellow at that start, in the end it had one white door, one blue and a white bonnet!

OranjAnd bench seats, madness (ours was an automatic so there wasn't a gear stick). When i was small I'd sit in the middle between mum and dad.
