1979 Ford ESCORT 1600 SPORT 2-Door RHD For Sale

The car offered here is a 1979 Ford ESCORT 1600 SPORT 2-Door RHD; effectively brand new inasmuch as it was subject to a total ground-up restoration, and this included a fully restored body and interior. The car has every single new component required, and is now nearing completion. A Ford specialist restorer will be handling this work as the owner has closed his personal restoration workshop (including its own paint spray-booth and oven) and the staff have been laid-off due to his retirement after selling the farm that the facility was located at. The workshop was cost justified on the basis of having restored over 30 prime examples of performance FORD Cortina, Escort, and a totally unique Granada PERANA V8 from the three decades of 1960's to 1980's inclusive.

This example came of the production line in South Africa in a Metallic Black body-colour, which has been changed to a Dark Gunmetal Grey complete with Gold colour “1600 Sport” body decal and stripe which is nicely offset by the Gold coloured MINILITE road wheels. Apart from these “personalised aspects” the car is standard to factory specification. Intrinsically, this superb car needs the final assembly of a few components – interior electrics, some door/boot aperture weather-seal rubbers, and seat installation, then a major service and tune-up and first-time commissioning from having every component restored or rebuilt with genuine new parts before she is ready to be shipped. Suffice to say that every single aspect of this restored car was completed to the very highest level of attention to detail and it cannot be faulted. Comprehensive photo-images of the under-body will be taken before the car is rust-guard sealed or if you prefer we can leave it in the standard painted state.

The price of GBP25,000 includes all costs to complete, transport, insure & container ship to the UK and fully import. It will then be delivered to your home, ready for you to drive and enjoy complete with a fresh MoT, DVLA Registration, and UK Number Plates – you just have to properly insure your precious investment.

Kindly call me; Peter Jackson, directly on UK number 07379-415186 to discuss the car further – or email me, but please include your name and contact number – thank you.

Several other equally spectacular restored sporting Ford of Europe cars from the same collection are also being advertised on this site – all of which offer the opportunity to buy the very best examples available in South Africa today and unlikely to be repeated.
