Seller's notes: Vehicle is in good condition for its age. It will require some mechanical work to go through MOT. Some panels have dents in them so they will need attention. The vehicle will require one plate welded in the boot pocket, the slam panel and cross member will need replaced. The bulk head was cut out by the previous owner, the back pocket and back arch will need attention. (See photo graphs) Otherwise the car is in good condition. I had it driving this morning and it starts on half a turn and ticks over nicely. All the electrics work and the interior is very clean and un spoiled. The roof cloth is almost perfect. The vehicle has been dry stored since it was imported and the hot climate reflects its solid condition.

Ford Escort MK2 - Right Hand Drive for sale

Current customer rating: current rating for this car(2.15) based on 463 votes

For sale is a 1979 Ford Escort MK2. The vehicle is right hand drive with a 2 litre (petrol manual) pinto engine. 1600 model.

The vehicle was imported from South Africa and kept in dry store ever since. I have original bill of lading and receipts from MSC to show that all import duty and tax have been paid. The vehicle cleared customs in Belfast so you have nothing to worry about. Registering the vehicle in your own name is simple and straight forward. I have South African log book but DVLA will issue a UK one once the buyer registers the vehicle in their own name. All the paper work is in order to register the vehicle here in your own name.

I drove the car this morning. it starts on half a turn and drives well.

There was a new clutch kit.

The brakes will need attention.

As the photos show the car is in decent condition. the interior is in very good order but some panels will require tlc and attention. The car will make a really good project for any Escort enthusiast.

The vehicle is located in Northern Ireland and can be shipped to mainland UK for a fee. Please contact me if you require a quote as this cost is not included. A £250 deposit will be required through paypal once the bidding has ended. The buyer can then transfer the remaining balance via online transfer or cash on collection. I will accept paypal for the entire amount if the buyer pays paypal fees.

I have described the condition as best as I can and the photos should reflect the condition as they were only taken today. however. If you require further information please ring me on 07542017497 - I am in work from 8-3pm so if I miss your call I will ring back ASAP.

I have no buy it now price but I will listen to offers if you want to make me one. The vehicle may be sold on other websites and if so I will cancel the auction.

Please only bid to buy. not for fun. I understand that the car needs some work. but I know these cars are getting rare and I have seen 4 doors and left hand drives sold at silly money so if the car doesn't reach its reserve then it will remain stored in my shed and will not be sold.

Thanks for looking and happy bidding.
