Mk1 ford escort first registered in 1970.
I believe built in 1969 due to the irregular spot welding, as I was told the factory welding was automated for 1970.

Built as an 1100 L I purchased it in 2004 as a shell with 2.8 I front struts and brakes, rs2000 rear axle and Aley bars role cage.

The body has all its original body work except the front wings, bonnet and rear arches, the latter were already fitted when I got it.

There was evidence of a front offside collision.
The original strut tops where not in bad order and the original chassis number was still readable.

Any rot was removed and replaced, and then new rally spec tops fitted with roller/rubber bearing mounts.

The inner wing to bulkhead flanges were rotted so replaced.

The front wings were replaced with good quality Mexico reproductions from Cleavland panels (they only make 100 pairs a year).

The cills are original, there were some holes but these were repaired.

The floor is original.

All seams and joints were seam/stitch welded as per rally prep.

The gearbox tunnel was “eased” to allow the fitment of a five speed gearbox at a later date and also to allow the engine to be mounted further back, type 9 gearbox mounting holes were added for a later date. New gearbox mounting was fabricated.

The front cross member was strengthened and modified to allow the rearward move.

Type 49 mods made including chassis gussets at the bulk head to chassis transition.

Strut braces front and rear. Tye-bars from strut tops to roll-cage. Also cross brace across under the dash.

Original 1970/80’s Aley bars roll-cage. Rally spec top mounts. Front strut strengthners. Rear coil over mounts plus strut brace.

Paint finish is 1970’s ford original Ermin white, although originally duck egg blue/green.

1690 crossflow engine with Cosworth internals, 1300 rods, 711m block, 1 re-bore done, fully ported and polished.

Standard cam and twin forty Webbers. Steel 2.0 litre radiator, accu spark electronic ignition, oil cooler and oil cooler thermostat fitted.

2000E single rail professional built gear box. Cable clutch twin cylinder brake pedal box fitted with twin fluid cylinders under the bonnet.

RS2000 rear axle fitted with 4 link bars and Panhard rod, all bushes Pollybush, 4 link on rose joints.

AVO coil overs on front and rear. Front 2.8 struts strengthened, vented discs and brake calipers.

Rear 9 inch drums. Battery in the boot.

This car was built for competition but never used as such.
Please don't hesitate to get in touch for any more details.
This is a 15k car for 10k, just needs a bit of work.
