So.... I dropped over the Pennines to a breakers yard in Rochdale today after work. I had arranged to buy a window mechanism from him. Got there.... £30... smiles all round.

Anyways.... I asked if they still had the car in it came from.... the gaffer pointed me in the general direction and off I went for a look.....

Well.... I have to admit I was suprised to see a bright yellow Trophy parked up with its front end sideswiped....

The gaffer had warned me that there wasn't too much left (he'd sold the engine to someone in Sweeden!). I had a poke around and went back in... this was the deal we arrived at:

Electric window motor and mechanism £30
Sunvisors, working, and clean £5
Rear high level boot lamp £15
Speaker T-Bar £25.

£80 all in for a set of nice parts from a very nice car indeed... I feel young agin!

Grave robber.

Only joking. Good find. I need to find one in a breaker as I need at least the 2 side air intakes to experiment with.

Well done Dave. I dream of finding a Trophy in a yard somewhere. Think I might get the suspension units from it for future insurance ;)

You're lucky Dave. It's almost impossible to find a breaker with F/TF's here,
it's like finding a needle in a haystick ;)
