An Immaculate Ford Escort GT Mk1 Superspeed V6 Recreation For Sale (1972)
An immaculate Ford Escort GT Mk1 Superspeed V6 Recreation.
Superspeed Conversions Ltd was a specialist racing company set up in the late '50s by two brothers, Mike and John Young in the East End of London. In the late '50s and through the '60s, Ford Motor Company did not have their own Works race team and outsourced this activity to three professional race car preparers. These teams were Alan Mann Racing, Broadspeed and Superspeed. During the Sixties, Superspeed operated from a garage behind the local Ford dealership at Ley Street, Ilford, East London and specialised in preparing and racing Ford Anglias for race drivers Mike and John Young, as well as Chris Craft and Nick Brittan. Highly regarded Superspeed Conversions Ltd would also convert new road cars for discerning buyers wanting sparking performance and bespoke performance solutions at a premium cost.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
An amazing Superspeed transformation has been performed with the bullet proof Ford 3.0 Essex V6 engine. Stunning detail to the immaculate engine bay will delight the show circuit attendee wanting to collect trophies and the engine sound track will please the enthusiastic driver. 138bhp is estimated with rapid acceleration through the Type-5 four speed gearbox.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Expensive, unmarked and highly polished Alley Cat alloys with colour coded centres are shod in Nankang Toursport 205/60 R13 tyres and look stunning. Vented front discs are gripped by Wilwood 4-pot calipers with EBC Greenstuff front pads and 3.0 Capri rear drums up rear to stop the car safely.
Radically modified Fords worked on by Super Speed Conversions Ltd received such enthusiastic praise for their sparkling performance but were enjoyed by only a handful of individuals due to the cost. The previous owner Mr Colin Waine, failed to find such a car but always wanted one, so embarked on building the perfect recreation. Registered on the 16th May 1972 and with just four former keepers an un-welded shell formed the starting point in this costly project. Respected within the Ford community, the Waine Brothers are renowned for building some of the finest recreations to grace the Ford circuit and KGF Classic Cars are very proud and honoured to be able to offer this special car to a very lucky new custodian.
