This is strengthened export shell, similar the Mexico and RS2000.
Also has the added benefit of a factory fitted larger gearbox tunnel.
Produced in 1974 but not registered until 1975.
One lady owner car, unfortunately she died, and the car was sold by her son.
Last time the car was used was in 2006, the lady drove it into the garage, and it stayed there until I purchased it in April 2020. Luckily enough the handbrake was not on all that time and it was surprisingly easy to get out of the garage, moved freely.
It will be sold fully serviced and with a new inspection (MOT/TUV).
As you will see in the photos, it is in great original condition, rust free (apart from some minor bubbling in a couple of places) and never been welded. I have over 100 detailed photos that I can send you on request.
From what I can see and have been told, it has been painted from the center trim line down and the rear panel/valance has been blacked out, the rest of the car has original paint. One of the rear quarter center line trim has fallen off, I still have it and it could be stuck back on. There is also scratch at the top of the rear quarter, looks worse than what it is.
The interior is in fantastic condition, apparently the rear has never been sat in.
Speedometer is showing 98tkm, I was informed that this is correct, and I believe that.
This Ford Escort MK1 1.3 Automatic is in Finland and can be shipped worldwide!
Please know that I will help you in every way possible with the purchase. I have good contacts for shipping the vehicle all over the world. If you would like to come and view the vehicle before purchasing that would be great but if it isn’t possible to come and view I will do my best to give you as much information and as many photos as you require. I myself buy many cars from foreign countries so I know exactly the situation you are in.
