THIS IS MY BEAUTIFUL MK2 ESCORT MEXICO 'REPLICA' IN DIAMOND WHITE !
TAX EXEMPT, 2-DOOR !
This is an original rust free 2-door MK2 Escort.
This car has not had any welding underneath, the sills, inner sills, floorpans, tank well, spare wheel well and front inner wings are all totally original and unwelded. This MK2 is as it left the factory and has not been subject to years of patch repairs.
When I was trying to find a solid shell I looked at several really good ones but this stood out because of its factory originality. You would struggle to find another one this good.
Originally it was a 1.6 Ghia and it still retains the 1.6 GT crossflow engine, with 4 speed gearbox. It has a new Weber twin choke carb and it drives amazingly and feels tight and original. I have recently fitted new -1 inch front springs and 1.5 inch rear lowering blocks to improve the way it sits on the road. New adjustable rear shock absorbers have also been fitted to complete the handling. The brakes have also been overhauled with new front calipers.
The exterior has been enhanced with full Mexico Decals, genuine Ford rear boot spoiler and at the front new headlights, new front Mexico spoiler and new front quarter bumpers. Additionally this MK2 sits perfectly on a set of original Ford Escort Mexico 5 1/2 J deep dish steel wheels, fully refurbished with 'RS' centre caps and brand new 175/70/13 tyres. It also has the ultra rare opening front quarter light windows in the doors.
Inside, the front seats are a pair of professionally refurbished black Fishnet Recaro's and on the floor there is a thick pile Ghia carpet set. RS2000 Custom door cards and the original Genuine Ford centre console with clock complete the interior. It has never even had a radio fitted !
I had intended this MK2 Escort to be the perfect car for going to shows or an enjoyable weekend 'A' road drive and it is perfect for that.
This car is very reluctantly offered for sale due to a major change in my personal circumstances.
It came from France a couple of years ago, therefore left hand drive, this was too good a shell for this not to be my dream car and is registered as a Tax Exempt Historic Vehicle. Currently showing 39,000kms with a folder of history
This MK2 Escort, in this incredible conditon, with its original rust free shell is definately an appreciating asset. Use it as it is or it would be a brilliant shell to re-shell an 'RS' model.
Located in the north part of Dorset near to Sturminster Newton.
Please feel free to contact me to ask any questions. Serious offers will be considered once the Escort has been viewed.
