We are now taking a reservation deposit to secure this Vehicle. Fresh in stock, this is a one time opportunity to own a genuine low mileage time warp classic, with a mere 1996 miles on the Odometer. This was purchased brand new in 1982 by a district nurse who then passed away 2 years later, The Escort was then dry stored at her parents to which it stayed until April of this year when unfortunately both parents became deceased. Through out this period it had never been ran it. We recovered the vehicle by trailer and carried out a full re-commissioning including Fuel tank Clean, Fuel line flush, Carb strip down and clean along with various other ancillaries. We connected a brand new battery, changed the fluids and it fired up and runs like a dream.

We had sent the brakes away for refurb as we did not want to fit any none genuine parts to the vehicle to keep it as untouched and original as possible , these have now been stripped cleaned and returned and are fully functional.

We have completed a basic hand valet for the sake of taking images as we do not want to use the machine polish process given its age.

We have left the original Nurses leather Trunk in the boot containing numerous items for authenticity as eerie as it may seem... There is also a newspaper cutting from when the Escort was last used and the day of its owners passing.

This really is a museum piece.... i doubt there is another 1.3L in this condition available anywhere.
