The car shall come with a fresh MOT.
This MK4 Escort is a true survivor and a long lay up in an old gent's garage has kept old Ford in great original shape. The bodywork is very sound and in generally very good shape, the undercarriage is super solid and there is no evidence of welding or corrosion (it is fully wax-oiled and in great shape). The interior is in particularly good shape (seats, carpets, headliner, plastics, steering wheel). The engine bay is also very good - the engine and gearbox has been painted and detailed for showing at classic car shows.
Importantly the car drives wonderfully well and still feels very fresh - the uncomplicated 1.3 OHV engine is a basic power plant and much easier to live with than the later CVH engines that followed in the Escort. This one has a 5 speed gearbox too. she starts on the button and has a new battery fitted.
The speedo displays just 25k miles, however we cant't guarantee that this is the actual mileage due to the time he car has spent garaged prior to the first modern MOT being carried out in 2016. The last time the car was MOT'ed it passed with no advisories.
So in summary this is a great starter modern classic in very good shape. It isn't a concours show winner, but it certainly has potential due to the solid bodywork and overall good shape. The car has a minor scrape on the offside front wing (small, see walk around video) - the paintwork on the same offside front wing does have some 'micro-blistering'...but this could easily be improved if so desired. Otherwise everything is in great order.
