Onethirtysecond shells - Ford Corsair

Still at the planning stage but I like to think ahead.

The Corsair is built on a lengthened MK1 Cortina floor pan plus the screen and door pillars are as MK1 so I'll probably do this around two Cortina shells cut and shut. One shell will have a cut made forward of the rear arches and at the base of the rear pillars and the second shell will be cut the necessary 3/32nds further forward and the roof removed. Hopefully this will all marry up OK then the rear pillars will be widened. Obviously a lot of filling/reshaping required and extra material added fore and aft of the wheel arches.

A set of plans, as included in the body section of some manuals or in brochures, would be useful if any one can help.

Long time away this one.
