Ford Escort Bantam Pickup. This is a genuine ford built pickup which was only available in South Africa. Its RHD with all tax and duty paid and NOVA declaration done. Very very solid original old vehicle which starts runs and drives. Will need MOTd then UK registered but we will help the new owner with all the registration paperwork.
Body - Ford built Bantam pickup. Extremely solid underneath from front to back. Never been welded underneath and needs nothing. Floors are nice and straight and not battered to death. Paintwork looks fairly original and is well worn with a few marks here and there and rub throughs on the paint. Body is fairly straight and again pretty rot free. One small bubble on bottom of one of the arches. There is a small hole size of your thumbnail on the battery tray which will need attended to.
Mechanics - Original 1.3 crossflow engine with 4 speed box. Pickup starts runs and drives. Engine, box , clutch and brakes all seem good. Will obviously benefit from a good checkover and service. Carb may need slight adfjustment due to the different climate it came from.
Interior - Original bench seat which has a few cracks and splits underneath the seat covers. Perfectly useable but would need retrimmed if tidying the truck up. Door cards dash and headlning are decent and would just need a good scrub.
Wheels - Original standard steels. Not the prettiest but thats how they came.
Very solid old bantam and about as good as your likely to find an unrestored one. Great basis for a project. Please feel free to come and see it. We have a ramp so you can look underneath.
Delivery can be arranged if required. Please ask for a quote.
