An unspoilt and rare Mk1 Ford Escort 1300E Campaign Model with only 7,490 miles

EQUIPMENT
All steel welded integral construction, safety glass all round, anti-burst locks, flared wheel arches, rectangular Lucas sealed head lights, Lucas auxiliary lamps, side repeat flashes on front wings, vinyl roof, special motif on rear pillars, door mounted exterior mirror special sound deadening pack, bright metal wheel rim embellishers, triple bodyside stripe, Genuine wood veneer finish to upper and lower fascia, glove box, instrument binnacle, doors and rear quarter cappings. Factory options; Metallic paint.

EXTERIOR
Finished in factory optional Amber Gold Metallic, (Code L), this example has covered a genuine 7,490 miles from new and is presented in outstanding unspoilt condition. The paintwork is near flawless having benefitted from a professional repaint in 2008. Photographs taken prior show the car in superb order with just some minor cosmetic deterioration from the cars long term storage. All panels are factory fitment and no structural repairs have ever been undertaken nor required. 1300E aficionados will recognise this Aveley assembled Series One by the fixed side rear windows as opposed to the openers fitted to the Series Two and the super eagle-eyed experts will note the incorrect 1300E wing badges. Underneath the car is outstanding with the correct original slant rear shock absorbers in black to denote Ford units rather than the blue Armstrong parts as well as the black anti-roll bars and even the cardboard undertray which is long lost on most cars! All trim sections are original and in superb order with some very light tarnishing to some chrome pieces.

INTERIOR
A interior every inch as expected with the mere 7,490 miles covered. The ribbed cloth interior in Tan, (Code K1) is fitted as standard on the luxury 1300E and are in fantastic order. The wall-to-wall cut pile carpets, putty headlining and real wood veneer panels are all original with slight lineage to the passenger wood facia. All equipment and functions operate and the experts checklist will be ticked with correct smaller glovebox knob for earlier cars and incredibly there is even the cleverly concealed original ice scraper sat inside the centre console. Inside the boot area is the original hessian bag with grey jack and black plastic inner light cluster protectors and lack of boot lamp, all correct for earlier cars.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Ford took the 1300cc Crossflow engine from the GT model which developed 72bhp and achieved 0-60mph in 13.3 seconds whilst reaching a top speed of almost 100mph. The factory fitted engine sits in a beautifully clean and unspoilt engine bay with all factory stickers, plates and labels and the original chassis stamping to the inner wing. The factory data plate reads SPCL CAMPAIGN (Special Campaign) which is correct for a Series One car. Originality even extends to the factory wing/slam panel seam welds, genuine Ford hose clips and washer bottle. The four-speed manual gearbox is light and precise.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Five-inch sports styled road wheels are standard 1300E specification in silver fox with satin black inner sections as well as the rim embellishers. Premium brand Michelin Energy tyres are fitted to all road wheel and original seekers with be delighted to learn that all five factory fitted Michelin ZX tyres in excellent condition have been retained having covered such low miles! GT-spec disc brakes were fitted to the front of the 1300E and this factory standard system feature servo assistance.

HISTORY FILE
Built in March 1973 and registered new on the 1st August 1973, the car was supplied by Ford Main Dealers, Invicta Motors Ltd of Margate and Ramsgate. The first registered keeper was Mrs Skinner followed by her husband who owned the car until 2007. When the third owner bought the car from Mr Skinner it had covered just 3,450 miles! In 2008 a full re-paint was undertaken by professional experts, Mabel Coachworks in London. The history file is beautifully organised and presented with many photos of the car prior to the repaint proving how undamaged and rust-free it was. The history file traces all five owners in total and the large file contains the original handbook, tax disc holder from the selling dealer, invoices, previous MOT certificates, condition reports and agreed valuations.

About usKGF Classic Cars was formed by the owner's desire to pass on the enjoyment of amazingly original, modern classic cars and the pleasure these vehicles offer to their appreciative owners.

The eldest son of Italian-born parents – whose families came to the Cambridgeshire Fens after WWII to make bricks for new housing – Karl Fasulo grew up in the 70s and 80s when there were fewer cars on the roads.

His appreciation of beautiful motors began when his engineer father, Sav, purchased a red 1983 Mercedes 280SL as a weekend car back in 1985. That same Mercedes is still well-loved and driven regularly by Karl and is now in the showroom for all to see!

After a successful career spanning two decades selling and managing premium vehicles for dealerships in London and Cambridgeshire, Karl decided to set up KGF Classic Cars, to source original, modern classic cars and share them with like-minded knights of the road.

He says: “As a kid, I would squeeze in the back of our lovely red Mercedes with my brother and sister (seatbelts were not mandatory at that time!) – Mum and Dad in the front and all of us enjoying the outing. I would gaze out at other cars and my brother and I would shout out all the makes and models of the ones going by!

“With encouragement from my father, I entered the world of classic cars at 15, when I saved up and bought a 1964 Riley Elf Mk 2. This car was cleaned and polished every weekend until I was 17 when I threw away my L-plates and took to the road. My interest never subsided, even during my career at BMW – to the point where driving these older cars gave me more pleasure than the modern offerings. Perhaps it is just happy childhood memories, but there is something about those classics which draws me back to them every time . . .”

He added: “I consider it a privilege to meet and do business with people who love them as much as I do. So, whether you are buying or selling – or just browsing (taking a spin down memory lane, perhaps!) I hope you enjoy this website.”

All the vehicles offered by KGF Classic Cars are personally checked, meticulously inspected and driven by us to ensure they meet the incredibly high standards that are becoming very hard to find. The cars are eventually selected with the ultimate aim of providing the new owner with the best possible experience of that model, whatever it may be.
