Nice to see that this Orion is still about and looking sharp as always. Definitely one of my favourite modified Orions. Need to get back into a Ford at some point, because there is nothing quite like it!
Just because its not a RS, doesn't mean I can't buy nos genuine parts does it...
Purchase number 1... 1x Nos NS Carello headlight with original box - cheap aswell, just £35 plus postage
No problem just need the other side... not available from Ford... I checked with our local parts guy
Even got our Orion Register Ford parts guy on it... but his computer said no
Me being anti FB just said if you see owt let me know
A week ago getting late on he text me a link to one just put on eBay
A week of watching
And this evening
Purchase number 2... 1x Nos OS Carello headlight with original box - errrrrm, I needed it/ wanted it lol
Slight issue is seller won't post... but after a couple of texts to Orion Register members in that area and collection and postage is in hand...
Love a good Onion. I had a diamond white 1988 1.6i Ghia, one of my all time favourite cars. Unfortunately I didn’t have the talent to drive properly back then and smashed it into a wall. Went to the later 1992 1.8i Ghia Si afterwards, was a terrible car, nowhere near as good as the MK2. Brings back some good memories!
I think that the only good bit about the next version of the Orion was the rear wiper, looked a bit silly but is I had not defected from my 1988 Ghia Injection to a VX Cav GSI 4X4 2000 16V, I might have found out if that was a handy extra feature. Ford lost their way a bit then!
