1972 Ford Escort Mk1 For Sale

Ford Escort Mk1, registered in 1972. Road Fund License and MOT exempt.

Mexico V5 and ‘BFAT’ chassis plate in place - The car received a new standard body shell in the 1980’s so does not have all of the Type 49 features of the Mexico shell but does have anti tramp bars, six clock dash and strengthened strut tops.

Ready to be used with a recently fitted high capacity battery and a set of four new Yokohama tyres. The overall condition of the car is very good for its age which reflects dry weather use and thorough maintenance.

A limited slip differential, 5 speed gearbox, power steering conversion and uprated brakes all help to make this a great car to drive.
