A SUPERB EXAMPLE OF THE ICONIC MK2 ESCORT 
THIS LOVELY LEFT HAND DRIVE MODEL IN RARE VENETIAN RED HAS BEEN GARAGED THROUGHOUT IT'S 36 YEARS & THE UNMARKED ORIGINAL CONDITION REFLECTS THIS
THE MILEAGE IN KILOMETRES OF 80. 00 EQUATES TO JUST 50. 00 MILES FROM NEW & IS GENUINE
IT HAS NEVER SEEN A WELDED & THE ARCHES. OOT FLOOR. HEEL WELL. TRUT TOPS. INNER WINGS. NNER ARCHES. ILLS & CHASSIS ARE AS NEW
FRONT & REAR VALANCE'S ARE ORIGINAL & IN MINT CONDITION
COACHWORK & PANELS ARE DENT FREE & THE PAINT IS CRYSTAL & UNBLEMISHED (being fussy there is a very tiny seatbelt chip on the rear wheel arch)
THE GL CHROME SIDE STRIPS & RUBBERS ARE IMMACULATE AS ARE THE FRONT & REAR CHROME BUMPERS
 IT IS FITTED WITH A REMOTE DRIVER'S DOOR MIRROR (FORD OPTIONAL EXTRA) IN PERFECT CONDITION
THE UNMARKED BLACK CLOTH INTERIOR IS AS NEW AS IS THE ROOF LINING & ALL 4 DOOR CARDS
THE REAR PARCEL SHELF HAS NEVER BEEN DRILLED FOR SPEAKERS & IS AS NEW
 IT IS FITTED WITH A PHILIPS PERIOD RADIO (fitted to European models ) & WORKS PERFECTLY AS DOES ALL THE ELECTRICS IN THIS VERY WELL LOOKED AFTER ESCORT
THE CARPETS ARE UNMARKED & THE ORIGINAL BOOT PROTECTION MAT IS PRESENT
I BELIEVE THAT BEING FOR THE EUROPEAN MARKET THESE GL MODELS CAME WITH REAR SPOILER. EAR DEMIST. -BRANCH MANIFOLD & TWIN CHOKE WEBBERS. RONT QUARTER WINDOW GLASS AS STANDARD
THIS FASTIDIOUSLY OWNED CAR HAS HAD A FEW UPGRADES & AS CAN BE SEEN IN THE PICS COMES WITH A MATCHING SET OF4 RS ALLOYS ALL DATED FORD (1976) THESE ARE VERY PRESENTABLE BUT HAVE A FEW BLEMISHES
THE ORIGINAL 5- STANDARD WHEELS COME WITH THE ESCORT & ALL TYRES & CHROME INSERTS ARE IN EXCELLENT ORDER
ALSO ADDED IS AN RS STEERING WHEEL
FITTED WITH CIBBIS & COVERS (WORKING) & IN MINT CONDITION
IN ADDITION THE PREVIOUS OWNER HAD THE EXHAUST TAIL PIPE EXTENDED TO PREVENT THE REAR VALANCE BEING CARBONISED
THE ENGINE HAVING DONE ONLY 50. 00 CAREFUL MILES MAINTAINS A PERFECT DRIVING TEMPERATURE. HE OIL PRESSURE IS PERFECT. EARBOX CHANGES ARE PRECISE & REASSURING & YOU CAN TAKE THIS CAR ANYWHERE WITH CONFIDENCE

THE ESCORT YESTERDAY PASSED THE TESTING FRENCH EQUIVALENT OF THE UK MOT (CT)  WHICH DEMONSTRATES THE CONDITION OF THIS CAR
THE ORIGINAL SERVICE & MANUAL BOOKS ARE WITH THE CAR & THE ORIGINAL BILL OF SALE FROM FEBRUARY 1978 IS PRESENT & LIKE THE CAR IS IN MINT CONDITION
I KNOW A FAIR A BIT ABOUT THESE ESCORTS & I HAVE NEVER HAD ONE QUITE LIKE THIS. FOR THIS REASON I BELIEVE THAT THOUGH LEFT HAND DRIVE & 4-DOOR A CAR IN THIS CONDITION & ORIGINALITY WARRANTS MY ASKING PRICE. IF I DON'T GET THIS IT STAYS!
THE ESCORT IS FRENCH REGISTERED WITH ALL PAPERS BUT IS NOT DIFFICULT  OR EXPENSIVE TO REGISTER WITH DVLA & I'M HAPPY TO SUPPORT & ASSIST WITH THE PROCESS 

PLEASE NOTE*THE ESCORT IS PRESENTLY IN FRANCE & IF ENOUGH INTEREST WILL BE IMPORTED WITHIN THE NEXT TWO WEEKS & WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR COLLECTION FROM  ESSEX (BATTLESBRIDGE)
