Genuine 1973 Ford Escort Mexico in Sebring Red part restored. All matching BFAT Chassis numbers on inner wing. Vin plate and AVO plate.
Engine and gearbox out. and inner wings and bulkhead sandblasted and etch primed ready for minor repairs.
Body is very original type 49 shell. the chassis rails from front to back are all good and require no repairs. However. some repairs are required to front crossmember/lower front panel area(new member provided). both front floors(repair sections provided). outer sill on drivers side(new part provided) and a few other minor areas. Bonnet is good. front wings and doors require work but are easy repairs. but boot lid is US. If you want more photos for a better understanding of the work required. please email me but be clear that this is not a 'basket case'.
There are no front seats. only the backrest in the rear. no carpet or centre console. and no rear bumper. There may also be other bits missing. please ask if you cannot see a specific item loose in the crates. The headlining is also split.
The engine looks complete with its accessories and turns over freely. The prop shaft. servo. heater. wiper motor and fuel tank have been removed and are supplied loose(see photos). The rear axle. steering and six clock dash are still in situ.
In summary. this will make an interesting restoration as the car was supplied to a customer in France and is therefore quite rare being Left Hand Drive. Unfortunately. the registration document has been lost. but because the chassis numbers are all original and authentic. a letter of verification from one of the main Ford clubs should suffice to obtain an age related plate.  
Viewing is available and encouraged if you are not experienced on Mk1 Escorts. I am 5 mins. from junction 16 of the M6.  
Phone 07952 666695 with questions or to arrange to view.
Deposit of £200 through Paypal when sale agreed. and balance cash on collection. I can deliver at £1. 00 per loaded mile.
