FORD ESCORT MK1 1600 2 DOOR IN NEED OF RESTORATION. RHD IMPORT FROM SOUTH AFRICA. NOVA REGISTRATION DONE . WILL NEED UK REGISTERED WE CAN ADVISE AND ASSIST WITH THIS PROCESS. NOW THIS LOOKS A ROUGH OLD DOG BUT ITS ACTUALLY FAIRLY GOOD UNDERNEATH AND BENEATH THE STONECHIP AND HORRENDOUS PAINTJOB SOMEWHERE THERE IS A MK1 ESCORT 2 DOOR . ITS JUST FINDING IT MIGHT BE THE PROBLEM

 
BODY - 2 DOOR MK1 ESCORT SHELL. THIS IS THE EARLIER TYPE SHELL WITH THE SHOCK ABSORBERS THAT BOLT ON TO THE BAR UNDER THE FLOOR. THE INNER WINGS AND STRUT TOPS ARE GOOD AND IN THE MAIN THE FLOOR AND CHASSIS IS QUITE GOOD. IT WILL NEED REPAIRS ON THE FRONT FLOOR PANS BUT ALL THE INNER FLOOR FROM THE CHASSIS RAILS INWARDS IS SPOT ON. WILL ALSO NEED REPAIRS IN THE SPARE WHEEL WELL AND TANK WELLS AND ON THE O/S FRONT CHASSIS LEG NEAR THE FRONT AS PICTURED. NOW THIS IS THE MOST HORRENDOUS PAINTJOB I HAVE EVER SEEN SO DONT COME EXPECTING ANYTHING BETTER!!!!. IT LOOKS LIKE IT WAS PAINTED BY A BLIND MAN WITH A ROLLER IN A SANDSTORM. WINGS ARE A BIT BATTERED N BRUISED AS ARE MOST PANELS BUT I THINK THE DOORS BOOT N BONNET MAY BE SALVAGEABLE AS THEY ARE NOT ROTTEN JUST BEEN BADLY PAINTED. BACK LIGHTS ....YES I KNOW WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT. WILL NEED A NEW BACK PANEL AND FRONT PANEL ALSO.
 
MECHANICS - 1600 CROSSFLOW WITH 4 SPEED BOX. CAR STARTS RUNS AND DRIVES ENGINE SOUNDS OK. WE HAVE ONLY DRIVEN IT A SHORT DISTANCE FOR FEAR OF GETTING SEEN IN IT SO IT WILL NEED A PROPER CHECKOVER MECHANICALLY.
 
INTERIOR - DOG ROUGH................
 
WHEELS - CHROME CYCLONES ONLY FIT FOR A STOCK CAR
 
IF YOU ARE MAD ENOUGH TO COME AND SEE THIS CAR I HAVE A RAMP SO YOU CAN LOOK UNDERNEATH. DELIVERY CAN BE ARRANGED (IN THE DARK) IF REQUIRED. PLEASE ASK FOR A QUOTE.
