Condition of Car:
Classic Car Sale Status:
- For Sale
Ford Escort Mk2, RHD Import from South Africa fitted with 3.0 V6. Good solid shell. Starts runs and drives but will need a bit work to make it useable. UK registration has been applied for and should be here soon. This started life as a basic car and is not a genuine 1600 sport .
Body - Ford Escort MK2 shell.. Original floors, solid inner wings, arches, sills, pillars. boot floor. Previously had repairs in spare wheel wells. Solid enough but maybe want done to a better standard. Couple of pin holes in font floors that will need sorting. Very minor but they are there. Evidence of a previous bump on osf corner as wing, bonnet, slam panel etc dont line up the best. Relatively easy fix but needs pointing out. Paintwork is nice and tidy and car is pretty straight along the sides.
Mechanics - 3.0 V6 - Triple Carbs not included, it will come with a weber and DGAS carb. Engine starts and runs ok but in my opinion is as much good as a boat anchor in an escort. Crossmember, rack etc has been modified to suit the 3.0 and the steering geometry is all wrong, verging on dangerous. It really needs put back to standard set up.
Interior - retrimmed seats. Nice and tidy but might not be to everyones taste. Good dashtop, headlining.
Wheels - 8" compomotives which are really too wide as they foul the arches.
So to summarise.....decent shell.....rubbish engine and front suspension set up.....marmite interior......carlos fandango wheels......however has lots of potential for a project / harrier replica / etc. Please feel free to come and see the car. If restrictions are in place we can send as many pics / videos as you need. Delivery can be arranged if required. Please ask for a quote.
