Reluctantly for sale is my mk2 Mexico, I need to buy a house and property prices here in Cornwall are ridiculous to say the least !  So this unfortunately means my pride and joy has to go.1977 signal yellow genuine Mexico, modified so not completely original.  Shell had a light restoration and full respray in 2016 by a reputable local bodyshop.  The 2.1 pinto motor was built in 2016 by Mark Shillaber of SRD competition engines and has a print out for 180 bhp.  It's not a mint show winning car but I'd class it as a very presentable, jump in and drive, usable classic escort that goes, handles and stops very well.  I've owned it for 8 years, it turns heads wherever you go, it's great fun to drive and puts a massive grin on your face every time, lots of smiles per gallon !  Comes with stacks of paperwork for thousands spent over the years and lots of previous MOT certificates.Spec is as followsEngine2.1 pinto, 93mm forged pistons, steel rods, balanced crank, turbosport billet flywheel, big valve ported head, SRD cam, double valve springs, twin weber 45 carbs, SRD 4-2-1 exhaust manifold, custom 2.5" twin box exhaust system, burton power non vacuum dizzy, lumenition electronic ignition, alloy radiator, electric fan, facet red top fuel pump, filter king fuel pressure regulatorTransmissionType 9 5 speed gearbox, quickshift lever, H/D clutch, single piece prop, Tran X plate type LSD, 3.77 CWPBrakesCapri 2.8i vented front discs, spaced M16 front callipers, rear disc conversion, EBC greenstuff pads all round, bias pedal boxSuspensionFront legs converted to coilovers with adjustable shock inserts and 160lb springs, roller bearing top mounts, 146lb single rear leaf springs, Gaz adjustable shocks, rear panhard rod, RS anti tramp bars, polybushed all roundInterior/exteriorCobra classic front seats, RS2000 beta cloth rear seat, water temperature and oil pressure gauges in centre console, rev counter that reads to 8000rpm built into RS dash but original is included and can be refitted if wanted, decent kenwood head unit, battery and screenwash bottle relocated to boot, 7x13 Superlites with 185/60x13 yokohama tyres, fronts almost new, rears brand new, correct mexico F.O.R.D letter grille is included just personal preference I prefer the oval badge grilleOnly not so good parts is there's some slight blistering on the front corners of the wings by the headlights but nothing major and hasn't come through the paint.  The key fits the ignition, boot and drivers door but not the passenger door, it's never bothered me but you could change the plates around in the lock barrel to get it to fit.  Mileage counter stopped working a few years ago, again didn't bother me as the engine and running gear aren't the originals, probably a plastic gear wheel worn inside the speedo.  I've barely done 1500 miles a year for the last 5 or 6 yearsLocated in Camborne, Cornwall.  I understand this is going to be a long way from most people so I will be happy to answer any questions and provide more info and photos for anyone that's interested.  The pictures are taken by the coast but I live a good few miles from the coast so it hasn't been kept near salty sea air !  Tax and MOT exempt, however I can have a new MOT put on for the potential buyer if they so wish.  Viewings welcome, no swaps or PXs I need a house not another car !  Payment is by either cash or cleared bank transfer only
