  • Ford escort mk1 Mexico 1972 AVO steel big wing,

 

Ford Escort Mk1 Mexico 1972 AVO unfinished project.

 

This is an early battery in the boot Mexico with a really solid shell that still retains its original chassis rails. inner wings. bulk heads. boot floor etc. So not the usual basket case. /span>

 

It has had a pair of inner sills at some point in its 42 year life span & a couple of small repairs on the driver's side front floor pan and ‘A' post. has had small repair in the rear spare wheel well / battery tray area but overall it's in very good condition for its age!

 

As can be seen in the photos it has had new front wings and steel bubble arches fitted. a motorsport front panel & new lower radiator cross member.

The car still retains its original back panel which is very good. The doors and outer sills also appear very good. The car was originally ermine white but has been painted red – and now red oxide!

 

As there are no turrets. panhard rod. link boxes etc. fitted. this is a blank canvas & the choice of how to finish it is yours!
