Hi guys first of all let me say that since joining this club i have managed to participate in the Midlands to Wales run 2015 and the Classic Ford Show which i enjoyed both immensely and that is mainly down to you guys! all the people that i have met and those that have given both words of wisdom and opinions. for that i thank you all
Sadly and with a very heavy heart the time has come for me to let go of my old fords for a while at least !.
I have The mk2 Cortina 1600E "in the almost Alan Mann colours" which has the 2.0ltr Pinto EFI engine which was originally built by a guy called Luke and has featured in 2 or 3 ford magazines .
I also have my mk1 Escort 2 door which so far has had almost every panel replaced with new ones and is in the welders shop right now being almost complete.
2x front Mexico wings new.
2x inner wings new.
front panel new
complete floor pan new
rear seat brace new
2 x rear arches new
2 x sills new
1 X SLAM PANEL
all of these new panels are on and the shell is almost complete.

And that total is without all the panels welders fees and of course the car was sand blasted when i first purchased it.
I purchased the car as a running car so all of the other bits are there aswell . it would take someone to finish the little bit of fitting/welding and then put it back together again there is a full wiring loom that comes with the car and it cam off of a mk1 escort that was running a pinto engine.
I also have a pair of black almost perfect condition original mk1 escort seats to go with it , back seats and rear roll cage.
I will add some Pictures at the bottom of this post but please bare in mind that i am just waiting for the welder to send me some updated photos the ones of the Escort were taken 2nd May.
alternativly if you look on Retards Club at paint wizards hes profile pic is of an orange and white VW camper you can see the pictures he has posted, he is also a body work / painter too so if you wanted him to complete then im sure you could come to some kind of arrangement.
There is also a HARRIS 2.1 PINTO on running twin 45S that still obviously hasnt been fitted yet as is still in the same condition that i picked it up from Jeff and James. i supplied the 45s and the Harris`s did the rest. you can see the engine on this forum in the HPE thread
As i reluctantly sit here writing this post i am still racking my brain as to find other ways of finding the money i need , but i cant, and yes im sure i will regret it once its all gone!!!!!!
