1973 Ford RS AVO Escort Mexico MK1. The World Record Breaker .... For Sale

This Car is now sold. We are always looking to buy similar vehicles for stock . Please contact us with what you have for sale . We really do pay the highest prices ...

"NAF" is without doubt the finest MK1 Escort Mexico available today, and the nicest restored example we have ever seen...We don't think Silverstone's representative realised what he had when he consigned the car ....

The car was subject to a 4 year, open chequebook,professional restoration, using only the correct Ford NOS parts where necessary, by the people who really go the extra mile and take the time to produce stunning results. If owning the ultimate example is for you, then this is a must have .. Not cheap, but we feel represents value when you consider the time and effort involved in producing work to this standard.

I have personally known this car for a few years, and witnessed its transformation.

There is a huge portfolio of photos documenting every stage of the work over the years.

We will always take an interesting car in part exchange, offer competitive finance deals, and we will deliver worldwide.

Please contact Andrew on 07836 226228 or email [email protected]

Thank you for reading

Here was Silverstone's description :

Ford Escort Mexico which was first registered on the 1st August 1973. It was delivered new through ‘Vospers Ford’ of Plymouth and spent many years in the South West of the country. There are numerous old invoices and MoT Certificates from this period which show dutiful ownership with maintenance and servicing over the years and this made it an ideal candidate for the car's previous owner to fully restore. The work was entrusted Tony Collins of ‘Classic Car Restorations’ in Kent and, after many hours of specialist work costing over £30,000, the car was transformed into one of the best Mk1 Escorts we have ever offered. The bodywork and mechanicals have been given the best possible treatment, whilst the interior has also benefitted from detailed attention. The engine was fully re-built and tuned by ‘Bailey & Liddle’ of Faversham, complemented by a beautifully engineered exhaust system fabricated by ‘Hayward & Scott’ of Basildon. The restoration was lengthy and exacting and was completed just six months ago. The car is now simply superb, having not been used since the work was finished, and looks fabulous in its original colour of Daytona Yellow, a very fetching hue for a Mk1. A lack of storage space and not enough time to enjoy this great car have dictated that our Ford-enthusiast vendor - who has owned numerous classic Fast Fords over the years - has decided to sell it, hoping a similar devotee will get to drive and show it properly, which it richly deserves.

Nobody can have failed to notice the swell of interest in Classic Fords, particularly the quick ones, and it doesn't look like abating any time soon. This Mexico must surely be one of the best examples available, it's absolutely ready to go and would be an asset to any enthusiast of these era-defining, characterful, sporting Fords.
