Technical specifications, photos and description:
1978 Mk2 Escort Mexico built in 2010/2011 from an UNRESTORED bodyshell. When I bought it the owner had tried and failed to build it up into a full car and had lost many of the original parts so I stripped it to a bare bodyshell and had a proper paintjob done by Goudies of Kilmaurs. It was stripped of all colour paint but all the original Ford primer was perfect so it was left in place. There was NO Rust in the shell or closures so there was no welding and no filler. The wings. wheel arches etc are all original and perfect. The only addition was a Gartrac Panhard rod tower As you may see all the panel gaps are perfect and haven't been adjusted etc. I then built it up with all new parts as follows.
Normally Aspirated Cosworth YB build by Jon Edwards motorsport and gave 241 bhp on the dyno.
A special Type 9 based gearbox by BGH Geartech and featured in their Classic Ford article. This is Semi helical so is silent but with the correct ratios.
Brand new 47" Atlas axle ( new Pigshead. tubes etc ) fitted with ZF LSD and 4. 6 cwp ( I can change that ratio free of charge if you want something better for road use ). It also has two piece shafts and Cosworth rear disc brakes. It is on tramp bars and GAZ adjustables.
The front end is on Bilsteins. tension struts. drop linked roll bar. adjustables TCA's. Roller bearing top mounts and AP4567 Calipers.
Inside there is EPS by Matt DOWNER. Gartrac pedal box and a full RS interior with brand new carpet and electric windows.
The car has done about 900 gentle road miles since completion. Never been on a track or Rally stage but it has got serious performance.
Because the bodyshell has not been messed on with it could be put back to standard Mexico. concours condition very easily
Please come and view to appreciate it. I don't want any Part ex's or silly offers.
I have set a realistic reserve and would like to let the auction run.
It is taxed until Xmas and MoT'd until July 2014. The car is registered with the RS Owners club and has appeared at quite a few RSOC shows.
I can take all normal payment methods except Cards but all funds will be in my bank before the car is released.
Any foreign bidders please contact me first and I will help in anyway I can.
