Buttercup moving on??

That's a shame,always sad when you part with something that means a lot to you :-( . I would snap her up in a heart beat,however a lack of garage space and a wife who would hit the roof if I were to land another Puma are the deciding factors for me right now :roll: . She looks a clean and well cared...

Hello From Finland. Puma 1.7 turbo wintercar.

Welcome.
That sounds like a handful :twisted: .
I think a brake upgrade would be wise :grin: .
Is the cooling system able to cope with the extra demand ok?

Hi there,welcome along. Good luck in your search,finding a rust free example is getting very hard these days,although not impossible :grin: Best thing is not to rush in,the right car will come along....sometime!!

P300UMA Private Plate

I'll keep my eyes peeled.
You may spot one of my Puma's darting about,what with all this fine weather we're getting just now 8-)
Making the most of it before they're holed up for the winter again.

Hi from Cornwall with 2 reds

You'll just have to convince her that now is the time to acquire them,before they increase in value :-) .
A sliver one looks brilliant when shod with propeller's....they really suit the car and hark back to the "Bullitt" ad that Ford made to promote the Puma.

Hi from Cornwall with 2 reds

Hi and welcome. A radiant red Puma always looks the part,and worthy of a second look....especially if wearing original propeller alloys :thumbs: . Now that you've started collecting I must warn you that it'll become terminal....you'll want a black one,perhaps a blue one....what about Moondust silver...

Hi. I can't say that I've had to battle serious rot but it's all down to how far and how much money that you personally want to put in to the car. If you can weld and fabricate yourself,or know someone who can,then you are in a much better position. :grin: Paying for a professional to carry out the ...

Yes an older fuel tank will fit just fine,hopefully you can source one that's in good shape.

Crikey,that is rare...I can't say I've ever seen one in this neck of the woods and being a Puma owner you''re always on the lookout when out and about.

Fuel tank woes - suggestions?

If it's any help my 2002 model uses the same fuel tank as the earlier cars.I think the fuel pump is slightly different,although its dimensions and fixings are identical. I fitted the Eurocarparts tank to my wife's Puma a couple of years ago and the only issues were the internal swirl pot for the fue...

Good to see some Puma enthusiasts close by(reasonably) :-) .
There are very few of these cars up my way,all my ones have been bought from the far flung corners of England,they seem to be in better condition body wise down south and it makes for a great road trip back home :grin:

Values rise for Ford Puma 1.7 Thunder

I think the Puma will undoubtedly gain classic status and prices will eventually rise,but that's a few years away yet. Back in the day you would struggle to even give away a mk 1 Fiesta and even the series 3 Capri's were at rock bottom. That's where the Puma's at just now,which is a real shame...how...
