I purchased Car in Dec 2017.
Car wasn't actively for sale at the time, the sale came from a conversation at a garage sale.
Is currently just a shell with a diff and handbrake. Nothing else.
Has been stored in shed for 10 years by former owner, and further 10 years by previous owner.
Shell was "obtained" from wrecking yard, possibly in Cairns but definitely somewhere North Queensland
Minor panel damage to RHS of radiator support panel, and may have had air con fitted given the "hacking" damage to expand size of hole on LHS of radiator support panel.
Former owner has a hand written note from phone conversation with Ford, stating....

Car currently has a sump guard fitted, but no mention of option 07 in note.
