Ford Escort MK2

RS 2000

For restoration

Ex Road Rally car rolling shell.

 

Where do I start. With the bad bits I suppose.

Well I think the pictures say it all really. This is a part restored rolling shell which is in need of completion. Unfortunately I have now lost the unit I have been storing my cars in and unless I can find somewhere else quickly I'm going to have to sell off some of my Escorts. this is the first one to go!

The shell is generally pretty solid but needs a small amount of welding to finish; chassis rails to floor pan. some small repairs to the near side door pillar. front floor pan. some rust around the gearbox tunnel and under the heater bubble.  just the usual stuff.

It needs a new front panel. slam panel and wing rails before the front end can be finally fitted. It is just attached with some bolts at the moment. The wings are genuine RS ones not cut and welded normal ones but they do require some repairs. the nose cone also has some damage. I have tried to show this in the pictures. Both doors require repair to the bottoms but are quite easily salvageable. Or simply fit new door skins at £50 each. much easier!

It is a rolling shell so there is no engine. gearbox. wiring loom. windows. interior or lights just what you see in the pictures. I appreciate that so far all of the above description is very sad but there is also some good news!!!

 

GOOD BITS.

It's an RS2000 and it's not a rot box!

The rear of the car has been restored and is quite solid. The boot; the floor is good. as it has obviously been used as a road rally car at some point it still has the centrally located fuel tank. the spare wheel post. and a battery holder welded in place. The spare wheel well has been replaced and is solid. the fuel tank well is also solid but not very pretty.

The interior; again solid but has holes from the fitment of a roll cage. It has a large exhaust tunnel under the rear seat. it has had a new drivers side front floor pan. and a new passenger side rear half floor pan. The inner sills are good with one small area requiring attention. (if the weather stays good I will repair this section of the inner cill and the door pillar. front passengers side. But not underneath the car).

The axle is an English reinforced casing. no differential fitted. with Spax adjustable shockers. It also has the brackets fitted for rear disc brakes.

Roof looks undamaged and solid. as do the A. B and C pillars.

 

The Minilite wheels are not included in the sale. it will come with standard steel wheels.

 

I think thats about it really. any questions please just ask.

I can deliver if required. email me with your postcode for a quote if you like?

PAYMENT IS STRICTLY CASH ON COLLECTION. CLEARED FUNDS OR BANK TRANSFER.

Thanks

Mark.
