Readvertised due to someone who put a deposit down then cancelled. Ford Escort MK1 fitted with 2.0 Pinto and 5 Speed gearbox. Superb example which is all detailed underneath, and runs and drives really well. Fortunes spent in it in last few years. This car started life as a base model. We have the current V5 here which correctly shows the engine as 2000 cc. You may have seen this car recently on the Giveaway Guys site. We suplied the car, but the winner took a cash option, therefore its up for sale.

Body - Mk1 Escort standard shell. At the time of rebuild, strut top strengtheners and tramp bar brackets were added. Car is completely solid from front to back and is all body colour underneath. Paintwork is really nice. We are told it was a bare metal respray. Its also got metal RS wings. RS stripes were recently added but can be removed if buyer prefers a plain white car.Panel gaps are pretty good and the doors sit properly in the apertures. All new window rubbers and door rubbers.

Mechanics - 2.0 Pinto which was rebuilt during the restoration process. Upgraded Cam, 5 speed type 9 gearbox, rs sump and mounts, new brakes, decambered rear leaf springs, new rear shocks, new steering rack, ball joints, brake and fuel lines. Carb was recently rejetted and set up by our local carburettor guy. New electronic ignition distributor. New exhaust. Basically everything was either new or refurbished. This car drives really well and feels nice and tight. Wee bit of a shudder coming through the brakes which we will get a look at. Its not done a huge amount of miles since being built so may require some tinkering as you go. If your handy with the spanners and know your way round a car then its a good prospect. If you just want to buy it to beat the ULEZ and dont know how to change a brake light bulb then its probably not the one for you.

Interior - New headlining, 6 dial dash ev counter, can be intermittenet, Mexico front and rear seats, Original door cards which are in good order. Good dash top.

Wheels - Polished 4 Spoke Alloys with good 185 60 13 tyres. We also have a set of deep dish steels if the new owner would prefer that look.

You are more than welcome to come and see the car. We have a ramp if you want to look underneath. Delivery can be arranged if required. Please ask for a quote

Any questions please ask or call 07879 557668
