As well as being able to provide most panels for 131s, Yagmur also has a full bodyshop and restoration facilities in Turkey. So drive to Turkey, have a holiday and drive back in a fully restored 131!  Cheesy Here's some photos of Yagmur's bodyshop:

Escky Heaven  Cheesy

I only ever had 1 Ford, back in '91....and it was a Side-on pesky Escky!

I bought it for ?600 with 26,000 miles on the clock and 2 previous owners

1976 4dr 1600 Sport (yes they did them)
1680cc
4spd Corsair 2000GT Bullet box
Janspeed manifold & exhaust
5 bar rear link
RS2000 brakes + master cylinder
RS2000 rear axle

It was plenty quick in a straight line.....but way too sidey in the bends Grin.

what you have to remember is that those panels are not replacement panels they are hand made! Yagmur has kept me updated with the progress on his cars & the workmanship is outstanding, i should have took my 131 over there when he offered last year!!!

Yes, that's right; the panels are made one by one and completely by hand. As Yagmur said, "These cars are very old and full of rust everywhere so we have to change every steel panel. At the end we have new cars with new steel. No rust under the paint." There are 24 cars being restored at the moment for which they make every chassis part, floor pans, boot floor, inner wings etc by hand. In fact any and every panel not available is made by hand to a very high standard.

There are also some 131s at the depot waiting for their restoration to start and Yagmur has promised to keep us all updated with full photographic records once the 131 restorations start.  "We are sure that we will make a 2010 model 131 with every body panel part brand new." So we all wait to see this brand new 131!

Here's some more photos:


















And here's the man himself, Yagmur  Wink Cheesy

The 131 in the photos below has been recently bought by a friend of Yagmur. An Abarth body kit was also bought from Walezy  and the 131 will be fully restored in Yagmur's bodyshop and turned into an Abarth replica. Hopefully we'll get full pictorial updates as the job progresses.

What wheel trims are fitted to that car? If they are from a series 2 Argenta I want to buy them Grin Could also be from a Regata I'm not quite sure.
