NOW SOLD SIMILAR REQUIRED The Ford Escort Mexico is a car that needs no introduction, a car that’s seen a meteoric rise in values and demand in recent years.
This car left the Ford factory in 1975 as a genuine Escort Sport, destined for the South African market having a sport shell with factory RS strengthening plates from new.
Painted in Ford Venetian Red with Mexico decals and genuine Mexico steel wheels (5.5 x 13 inch), this car has been given the full ‘recreation’ spec including Mexico interior and clocks, centre console, sports steering wheel, black perforated headlining and the all important genuine 'roll top' seats.
For the last 8 years this Escort Mexico recreation has been owned by a well known Ford collector and Historic Racing Competitor. He undertook the work over a five year period to produce a superb recreation of the much admired Mk2 Escort Mexico.
Beneath the bonnet the 1600 engine has been replaced by a period-correct RS2000 Pinto engine complete with genuine RS2000 alloy sump producing a meaty 161bhp on the rolling road. The induction noise is magnificent courtesy of twin 45 Dellorto carburettors. The four-branch manifold and performance exhaust provide the distinctive rally car soundtrack.
Currently showing 56,000 miles, this car is HPI clear and is complete with a UK V5 with historic status. This qualifies the car for MOT exemption and zero rate vehicle excise duty (road tax).
The MOT is valid until October 2020, and the car is accompanied by a variety of receipts and invoices detailing a well cared for ownership history.
