This 1974 Ford Escort Mk1 Estate was imported from Portugal in 2016 and since then has been subject to a ground up full restoration and conversion to a RHD 1600GT.

The car was stripped to a bare shell, complete new floors, outer door posts and sills were welded in, new Mexico front wings fitted with back arches flared to match and new front panel and new back corner panels fitted. It was then fully repainted in Vista Orange to ensure that it can be easily found in a car park.

The shell was then sound proofed and a new wiring loom fitted. A RHD GT dash was fitted along with new inner door panels, new roof lining and refurbished front seats. New carpets with underlay, new front and rear windscreen rubbers, new door seals and a new boot seal have also been fitted.

The 1600cc unleaded engine has been fully rebuilt with new pistons and rings and fitted with a 4 branch manifold and new Weber carburettor with a K & N filter. It is mated to a fully rebuilt gearbox with a new clutch.

The rebuild also included a new exhaust, new steering rack, all new brakes consisting of new discs, new calipers, new cylinders, new pads, shoes and pipes, new bumpers front and back, new coil, new wiper motor, new radiator, new Lucas headlights, 4 new spot lights, new oil cooler, new shock absorbers, new bushes and new number plates along with dozens of other parts. The wheels have been powder coated and fitted with new tyres.

The history file contains the current V5 showing the correct new engine size and number, the current MOT and dozens of invoices showing parts purchased for the restoration along with numerous photographs showing the restoration as work progressed.

The current MOT now runs until May 2019 although it is now MOT exempt.

The car will be licensed for twelve months from the date of sale for the new owner at no cost as the car qualifies for the Historic Taxation class.

This classic fast Ford GT estate is ready to be shown at any classic car event.

Prospective buyers are welcome to come and view the car in our Leeds showroom. Please ring to make an appointment to view.

UK wide professional delivery is available. Please ring for a quote. We are also happy to deliver to any mainland port for export.
