Bought my first Mk1 Escort back in March just before lockdown.
Originally a 1973 yellow 1.1 but now in Olympic Blue and running a 2.0 pinto & type 9 box, bought her from a chap near Norwich, maybe someone may know the car or had it when it was originally yellow.
A long 400 mile trim up home to Edinburgh but never missed a beat and never had sp many folks beeping their car horn and thumb's up; grinned all the way home, these care are really loved and always seam to be admired.
Need bits and pieces sorting like webber carb a bit rough on start up, exhaust knocking or something knocking in transmission tunnel; maybe gearbox mount, fuel gauge only registers from full to half way then is actually empty as I have found needs Mexico wings or doors aligned for a better panel gap and usual bits & bobs, but that's about it and expected for a 47 year old motor.
Looking at some point to get a bottom re-spray and fit Mexico stripes and change as a Mexico tribute and return back to RS 4 spokes.
She's a lovely wee car which I hope to keep for many years.
Looking forward to read all your posts and gaining some knowledge.
