Hi and welcome to the auction of our Escort mk1 Mexico. 1971
Before i start i must emphasise that the car is registered as a mk1 mexico with BFAT on the log book and has a clear title. HPI report to prove. However i believe that the car has been re-shelled and may not be a type 49. it's possible its a GT shell? 
Saying this i don't think it makes much difference because the car has been so heavily modified from an original factory car.
Where do i start!
Full restoration completed in 2007. this car was built as a tribute car by the son of Ray Vale. a very well known hot rod racer from the 70's who raced the original car (not this one) which was sponsored by Status Quo.
I have had the car repainted again with some changes. leaving the roof in the blue to show some of its history as the official pace car for the classic hot rod series as shown in the pictures.
Note. i will be fitting a Mexico stripe kit to the car the same colour as the roof. which i think will make the car look even more fantastic

there's loads more i've probably missed out but you get my drift on the cars spec. is basically a beast of a car and goes and sounds great. My teenage son prefers this car to my 1973 Porsche!
With some of these cars reaching in excess of 30k. genuine or not genuine type 49 shell. this is a lot of car for the money.
I have set the reserve price very realistically as we are in the business of selling cars not keeping them.
The winning bidder will be required to collect and pay for the car within 7 days of the auction ending.
We also except all major credit cards or BACS payment
The car can be viewed at our MotorAid Basildon branch between 9. 00am & 5. 00pm weekdays
