Ford Escort XR3i , 1985, Recently Imported from the hot dry climate of South Africa, All tax and duty paid and NOVA declaration done. Will need UK registered but we will complete all the paperwork in the new owners name. Very solid and original shell.
Body - Ford Escort MK3 shell. Very solid car with original inner wings, arches, boot floor, floors, sills and battery tray. Car is nice and straight along the sides. Paintwork is decent. Not a concourse show winner but very presentable. Never had any welding and doesnt look to need any.
Mechanics - 1.6 CVH engine. Starts and runs fine. No smoke or rattles. good clutch and brakes. It has been converted to efi and the old mechanical injection disconnected. Gearbox is a 5 speed but it sometimes jumps out of reverse. All standard xr3 suspension and brakes.
Interior - Seats have no rips or tears. Have been retrimmed at some point very similar to original but not quite the same. Good door cards, carpet and headlining. Parcel shelf has speakers cut in.
Wheels - 4 x Refurbed Cloverleaf alloys with good tyres.
Biggest problem with these cars was rot and this ones solid. Yes theres a bit room for improvement in the detail but a really good starting point. 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.
