I know this car well, owned by a local family for the last 10 years. Seen at all the local shows. This car gets alot of attention. It looks great and sounds fantastic.
Now , although still perfectly usable, its time it needs some attention. Look closely and its clear the car will benefit from a respray. Up close you can see most panels have some paint reaction/ marks etc. Few bits of rust appearing in a few places on the bodywork. Underneath solid, but has been patched along the way, so assume some more ongoing work here.
Starts and drives fine. Engine sounds perfect, especially with the twin 40’s and race cam. Brakes / suspension all good.
Cars with this set up commonly achieve over £25,000, so this car has been well priced to allow room for improvements.
Please don’t waist time with low offers , owner looking for close to asking price, its sensibly priced. The owner is only selling due to lack of storage, but if the price isn’t met, they will just tuck it away.
I think the next owner could enjoy this Escort as it is, do a few bits on it and continue to do work as needed, perhaps fit a rally inspired interior etc, or they could fully go through this car and take it to the next level …
