Hmmm, we've got the kit now all we need
is a nice sierra to cannibalise...
We've researched the basic requirements for the donor -
Robin Hood Engineering have based the car on a basic, non-injection
sierra donor. Hmm, no cosworth donor then. The basic requirement
is a Pinto engined variant in either 1.6, 1.8 or 2.0 Litre
size. The rear sub-frame, front suspension, engine and gearbox
plus the wiring loom and various bits from the dash are
There are also some novel uses for some of the suspension
components. We hunted around for a donor and had a look
at a few MOT failures before settling on the beauty you
see below. A G reg sierra sapphire was ours for around the
£300 mark with a full MOT and a few days tax...this
meant we could road test it. It looks like the car has been
worked on and we believe it has a 2.0 Litre engine. It seems
a shame to break the car as it is useable...
