If you're looking for a very smart Escort, this has to be one of the best going. I have uploaded a short film on Youtube, search for... Mk2 Escort 1.6 Ghia walk around Interior very clean, underneath very clean, exterior - very clean, engine bay very clean, you get the idea, not only clean but straight and great to drive. These pics were taken Nov 2020, the car has also a set of mint Mini-lights. So buyer has the option of wheels, or to negotiate to keep the 2nd set. The wheels on it here are genuine Mexico's, very much like standard but with a wider stance. Both sets are pretty much perfect condition. It has been poly-bushed throughout. Uprated Gaz Suspension 5 Speed box Period looking DAB & hands free - not a cheap one, this is a Continental, often fitted to Porsche & Mercs. New Ashley Exhaust front to back Engine standard 1.6 with twin choke webber - recently tuned by specialist Chrome all near perfect Quarter bumpers on front - I have the original full size front bumper in same condition. I also have the original steering wheel and radio if you want to revert it back to an original car. New Belts in the Back I realised I didn't upload shots of the boot, it is as equally clean, no patches anywhere on the car. The only upgrade was new top plates for the front suspension. (sensible and professional upgrade) It has a full size spare wheel matching the others. Tyres all A1 or new. Photo record of restoration Vinyl roof fitted by professionals, all new screen rubbers and inserts. Door gaps all perfect Ask questions... If you do not have the asking price please do not enquire, I'm not interested in bartering or trading. In fact please do not come to look unless you have cash ready or can show me it in your bank for transferal. The car is great and I know I am 'like everyone says' - 'going to regret this'. The car is a 1980, one of the last to roll off the line, it is not MOT and Tax exempt until April - I think (not looked into it fully). The current MOT is valid until 12th Jan 2021 but I will add 12 months for peace of mind inclusive of the asking price. Covid makes selling difficult so please do not expect a demo drive out. You can view maintaining 2 meters and wearing a mask, you can drive the car if you have the appropriate insurance and can give me the full amount in cash as a downpayment. Basically if you crash it, it is yours. I have a film of it out for a drive in the Summer I can direct you to on Youtube. I have a few films. There's probably loads I've forgotten, I will update... Lots of high res pics available contact Jim for more details...
