cool, but its not this one, the owner and driver was from NorWay. Valter Jensen is his name, i Will call him when i have some more sparetime, to try to get some pics and more history on the car ;)

the licence plate started With BN... but the original licence number is on a "normal" 4x4 here in NorWay now :roll: ...

talked to first owner again, so hopefully he could find som pics off it soon from back in the days. he thought he had some somewhere, so should have a look around to see. he is curantly driving a bda escort in historic racing, so is some busy :)

first it was all grpa With GSE/borham wiringloom and interior, but mt75 Box, soon changed to ffd, engine was buildt and setup here in norway. all parts from this car was moved over on his escos grpa, so the mystery of where the parts went is now closed... the wringloom, gauges++ I now found out is in a 3door grpa specced cossy over here...
