What a motor!
Your car looks absolutely fantastic and that Miami Blue looks amazing.
Seeing all your superb work on this thread has now given me a much needed injection of enthusiasm to crack on with my own 1300E restoration project once again (which after many ups and downs is now entering its 11th year!)
I prefer my Classic Fords just as Ford intended, so seeing you restore a 1300E to standard factory condition is a real treat for me as they have always been my favorite model Escort.
Keep the pictures coming, as i'd love to see how the work progresses on your car
