Twenty Years

P Reg? You must have one of the very earliest Pumas Redexr. I wonder what happened to Fords' prototype Puma, presume there would have been one - probably in a museum somewhere?

Help need some advice

It depends how much energy and funds you are prepared to spend. It sounds too far gone to me personally from your description, but then I havent got the skills to do the work myself. The main worry / thing to check in detail before i'd go any further would be the bodywork as this is the Pumas weakne...

Mot time

Good news. I'm always a bit apprehensive at mot time as mine has needed a little welding previously. One day when money allows I'll get it fully rust proofed underneath! Enjoy the next year of driving

Hi Barry When the PM functionality is back (i get an error message "disk is full") I'll message you - can I take the fuel pump + sender by post? I had to replace my pump last year: the garage struggled to identify the right one as my car (T reg non-digi dash) was built in the middle of a c...

New Moondust arrival

Hi Richard Oh that's a shame about the museums, but all credit to you for trying. Maybe they see Pumas as being still too new. Good luck with it, I do hope it goes to someone on this forum who will give it the care and garage that it needs. Glad you will stay on here and keep the black one though. W...

Welcome - looks a nice car. I bought a set of 9 spokes on a whim, but my car is actually still running on the original fanblades which I prefer - part of the original character of the car. Plate good too. Hope you enjoy it!

Sorry to hear that Richard. I would love the car too but i would be in serious domestic trouble if I bought a 2nd, 2nd car Puma! Frank has it exactly right, if Beaulieu can have a rusty 2cv, then any serious museum should have as immaculate a Puma as yours. Also don't feel you have to leave the foru...

Liked that video - thanks for posting haven't seen that before. Interesting that it has "Ford/National Motor museum Beaulieu" credited, maybe this is in their archive? Perhaps one day they will have an actual Puma/FRP in there. I went a couple of years ago and they had a Citroen 2cv in amo...

'97 Moondust Belgium

Oh dear hope you we're not hurt. Those old Polos must be tough- it is good to see it being fixed so well, sadly I think most people would just scrap a car of that age due to repairs being 'uneconomic'

Stolen Puma's

I wonder if many people had their spare wheel pinched - possibly not as they were never alloys? A mate of mine had this happen twice to his Ford Ka back in the day when they were launched - there was an inherent flaw in the design and all too easy for the spare to be 'liberated' from underneath... I...

will ford ever bring out a new puma

I'd like to think they will, but maybe not as Ford have the Fiesta ST etc to fill the sporty gap quite well - presumably at minimal manufacturing cost as the body is similar to the regular model. Sadly I think the Puma was a one off... But there seems to be a growing trend in the States to take/rest...

Newcomer questions

Welcome! Its worth a very careful look underneath just as Barry describes (I have learned that Barry on here is always right!). If the car only needs a bit of minor welding I wouldn't necessary be put off. I spent about £90 to sort out a hole in the sill near the seatbelt attachment one time. Probab...

'Rat look' Puma

I don't normally like to criticise other people's cars, if they love it and dedication is there.. but this one just takes the biscuit. The rat look may look cool if done subtly on some cars but this one is just...naff. Awful wheels too, seller will only throw them in if bids go above £700. Hmmm

Hi there
Nor sure if rubber mats were original on the Puma, I think the velour material ones were. I got these a couple of years ago, expensive but look good

hi all!

Welcome! Sounds an interesting idea to put a newer dash in but I expect it might be a real headache. I have seen another puma with a modern sat nav fitted into the existing dash which might be an alternative, but this sort of thing is beyond me. Puma parts are readily available - I would recommend I...

Later Puma rust quicker?

Just to add to this old thread, whenever I see a puma on the street I have a look at the rear arches. Yes, I am a bit sad. It may be just my imagination, but in 9/10 cases the drivers side always seems to be worse than the other (as is the case with my own puma) which I find a little odd and can't t...
