1978 Escort 2.0 Mexico Tribure For Sale
1978 Mk2 Escort Mexico Tribute,
She started life as a 1978 Ford Escort 1.3 There are only 28k miles from new and only 3 Owners from new wow. I am told that she has never been welded and having been over her in detail I am happy to say that the only welding I can see is where the anti tramp brackets have been welded to the chassis rails and axle. She was Ziebarted from new. this seems to have done its job beautifully. She is professionally fitted with a 2.0 Pinto which received a rebuild and fast road tune before fitting along with a type 9 5 speed gearbox on a World Cup cross member. The suspension is lowered and uprated all round. with single leaf rear springs and polybushes all round along with an anti trap bar on the rear end. A set of RS 4 spokes Alloys are fitted with new tyres. Externally she wears her original paint colour along with a colour coded Mexico front bib spoiler. an RS boot lip spoiler and Mexico stripes. Internally she has been fitted with a pair of Recaro Fish Net front seats that have been professionally re trimmed using the original fabric from the original front seats to match the rear seat which I am told has never been sat on. the condition reflects this. All interior trim is original and in excellent condition. There has never been a radio fitted and therefore are no nasty speaker holes hacked into the car anywhere. A centre consul has been fitted along with an RS 3 spoke steering wheel. she is now tucked up in the garage for winter. Fitted with a new alternator and gear reduction starter motor. This is a truly remarkable condition unrestored car with a beautiful stance.
If you are looking for a solid Escort MK 2 you will have to look hard as there isn’t many out there and this one will not disappoint,
first serious buyer will buy.
So here you have half the price of a Mexico with just as much fun and looking at her is hard to tell the difference.
