Ford Escort Mk1 1300XL . UK Car with 39666 Miles from New. First registered 1.5.1973 and purchased from James M Inglis Ford in Edinburgh.  We have the original bill of sale showing a cost of £1025.06. We have a lot of old Mots dating back to the 90s. Very honest original old car which was ziebarted from new. 
Body - Looks like a fairly original old car. Has been ziebarted from new which has saved it. Good inner wings, strut tops, floors, chassis , boot wells. Very solid underneath. Few bubbles on door bottoms and wing bottoms. Nothing drastic but could do with being attended to in the near future. Rear arches have been tidied up at some stage. Paintwork is perfectly useable but has a few age related marks as you would expect. Underbonnet has been covered with some sort of thick protective matting as has the full tank. Its quite unsightly but has certainly done its job. Really wants all taken off these days. Overall a very solid original car with no signs of any welding having been done. 
Mechanics - Standard 1300 engine which has only covered 39000 miles and is very sweet. Clutch is good. Gearbox is quiet. New front struts with new springs, tcas, vented discs  and braided flexi hoses have been added. Brakes could do with a bleed as cars hardly been used but we will give that a go in next few days. Back springs have been uprated at some point and new shocks some time ago. lots of receoipts for parts bought over the years. This car has been well maintained despite being seldom used.
Interior - All original with red GT / XL style seats with no rips or tears. Good carpet, fully working 6 dial dash. Good dashtop, headlining and doorcards. Really tidy car inside which fits with its mileage.
Wheels - 13" Minilite style wheels. Fronts catch arch a little on full lock so might need a lower profile tyre
Cracking old survivor car with low mileage and is really solid. Please feel free to come and see the car. If restrictions are in place we can send as many pics / videos as you need. We have a ramp so you can look underneath. Delivery can be arranged if required. Please ask for a quote.
Any questions please ask or call 07879 557668
