1973 Ford Escort Mk1 . Very solid old car which starts runs and drives but there is room for improvement. Ideal running restoration or great donor shell.. Will need UK registered but we will assist you with this and complete all the paperwork in your name.
Body - 1973 MK1 shell. Original inner wings, strut tops, arches, sills, floors and boot wells . Will need very minor repairs on outer section of floor between sill and chassis rail but overall very solid. Paintwork is like a black with some sort of pearl as it lightens up in the sunlight. Evidence of a little bit of filler in O/S lower quarter and bottom of nsf wing but otherwise good shell. Paintwork is fairly tidy but by no means perfect. There are two bits where the paint has started to lift and will need rectified. Perfectly seable if thats sorted but if you want a show car expect to paint it.
Interior - Seats been retrimmed in Tan. No rips or tears but need a bit of a scrub up. Good headlining and door cards. Aftermarket steering wheel.
Mechanics - Original 1.1 crossflow engine with 4 speed box. Starts runs and drives. Will benefit from a good checkover and service. Has the standard leaf springs and shocks at the rear but also has air suspension fitted so the car can be raised and lowered with a switch. It has has air on the front struts. Nothing on the car has been chopped or cut so its simply a case of fitting standard front struts and throwing the airbags in the skip unless of course you like that sort of thing.
Wheels - 13" Minilite style alloys with good 175 60 13 tyres
Ideal car for a bit of a running resto or good donor shell. Please feel free to come and see the car . We have a ramp so you can look underneath. Delivery can be arranged if required. Please ask for a quote
