  1. I have for sale, a full set of Roll top Mk 1 RS seat covers as shown in the pictures. They are cloth and vinyl mix as per the original covers but are not from Betacloth. They are in good condition and are 12 to 13 years old with no rips or tears. I replaced them with Betacloth reproduction ones as I had to take the covers off anyway to repair the foam in some places and replace the base webbing straps. The pictures below are before they were removed, I can take more pics of the covers loose if required. Headrest covers and seat buttons are included. Price: £250 + postage (at cost) or you can collect from Cornwall.
  2. hi I am rebuilding a mk2 escort the fronts hubs are different one fits lovely and one seems too deep and I can’t get the castle nut on far enough to get the split pin in. Can anyone help please. John.
  3. I used to own a 1972 blue mk1 Escort Estate (SWC 547K). I sold it long ago and I was wondering where it is now? I once saw a photo of it being displayed at the Battlesbridge car show in Essex with an 'Old Skool Ford' sun visor sticker, not sure what year but getting on for 5 years ago. It had a roof rack fitted and the bodywork had been sanded down to make it look a bit rough and ready. Would love to know what happened to it. It's SORN, but hopefully it's still about somewhere!
  4. Dear All, 5 years ago I bought 2 Escort MK1's with the intention of restoring them, however due to other commitments along the years I never started these projects. Fast-forward to this year, I went through some life changing situations and decided that My Escorts should be sold and sent to a new home where they hopefully will be restored as they deserve to be! I have one 1969 2 door Model with Round Headlamps and RS Front Wings - 1298cc Cross Flow Engine Car has some usual rusted parts such as front floorboards and pillars, but all the body panels that require replacement are included with the car itself. Apart from the mentioned areas, the car is found to be in a very good condition thus it makes a great solid base for a restoration. Most parts are still with the car and only few bits are missing. For more detailed view of the car please follow the below link to view the pictures. 1969 Escort Mk1 1300cc Pictures (Click to View) The other Escort is a Late 1974 2 Door Model with Squared Headlamps and standard front Wings - Car used to have a fitted Toyota 1498cc Turbo 1N Diesel engine, nut I got rid of this engine and Purchased a 1998cc Pinto Engine for this car. Car has some usual rusted parts such as front floorboards and pillars, also It has some rust under the right bonnet hinge. Apart from the mentioned areas, the car is found to be in a very good condition thus it makes a great solid base for a restoration. Most parts are still with the car and only few bits are missing. The Car comes with the following upgraded parts Rear Capri Seat GT dashboard Front Half quarter Bumpers Sierra 5 Speed Box Front Escort MK5 Seats Mini Light Alloy Wheels Front Adjustable Suspensions Front Disc Brakes Capri Power Break servo 1974 Escort MK1 2000cc Pictures (Click to View) Furthermore to the above Mentioned I also have loads of spares to go with these cars which will certainly facilitate the restoration process for the new owner.

My intention is to sell these two cars as a lot with the inclusion of all the parts I have mentioned above. Kindly note that the cars are situated in Malta and I willing to sell them overseas with the new owner taking care of any additional shipment cost. I know how rare most parts are nowadays and knowing that both cars have a good solid base I am looking to sell the car and parts lot at the price of : £25,000! Please do not hesitate to ask for questions should anything is unclear. I'd prefer to be contacted on my phone (Whats App or Call) rather than private message on the site as I am usually with limited internet connection.

  12. Hello all I've just joined forum, I'm in the process of trying to get a mk2 escort back on the road after a few years parked up! I started with no mechanical skills so this is a big learning exercise for me. I've picked a few things up from friends and family so far, but I think I'm going to be after lots of advice and tips! Look forward to reading about other people's projects.
  13. Hi everyone, I've joined after google pointed me in your direction I'm hoping to find some advice about a Mk2 Escort 1.6 Ghia that we've had in the garage for the last 21 years; I've attached a photo showing it after a quick wash. I'll have a good look around the forum and will post a new topic once I've done a bit of homework and got some more information together cheers, Vincent

  18. So as well as my Capri I took the plunge & bought this 4 door Escort. 1979, history from what I see is that it was bought new and passed over to the owner's wife in '94, then sold in 2005 and beyond that details are sketchy. But, it has an MOT until August '16, and plenty of small tweaks. New clutch, 1300 Crossflow, new Weber ICH34 carb, lowered 2" on single leafs at the rear, polybushed front end, and a 4 branch manifold, makes it sound faster than it goes, and front seat Recaros. It has a minor oil leak from the sump gasket (job to do) and the carb still needs tweaking but getting there. As my first dip into Escort territory it's a good start, it goes well (nothing like my Capri though) & a fairly smooth ride. Plans are to reinstate the chrome trim & paint the rear wheels, but the bodywork is solid & is worth keeping like it is, something cool about a ratty looking more door. Just need to enjoy it for the moment!
  19. MK1 ESCORT RS1600 BDA AIRBOX ORIGINAL (rare as rocking horse *$@*) MK1 MEXCO /MK2 RS1800 STEEL RIMS X5 Some other small parts I will list when I have time sensible offers, im in no hurry ! Pics will follow
  20. Hi Guys, A year or two ago I bought a mk1 shell for restoration. Its a 2 door shell, structurally solid but needs lots of bodywork done, we bought all the panels we needed at the time: from memory we had the floor, both outer wings, light holders, floor rails, mexico front panel, radiator support panel, A post repair panel. It also has fibreglass bubble arches, has been fully tubbed, and has a roll-cage. It comes with a rear atlas axle (or maybe an english axle) with a 4 link-kit, and an original race 7-11M 1.3L engine to go with it. The car is tax exempt and comes with a log book. Anyone interested in buying it? Seems a shame to waste it as I have been storing it for almost 2 years now and haven't managed to get around to working on it. Let me know what people would offer for it or how much genuine interest people would have, thanks very much James
  21. Well I bought another car. I finally own a Mk1 Escort. It is a 1972 MK1 XL 4 door. I purchased it site unseen on Gumtree and flew from Brisbane to Newcastle (Australia) and made the 10 hour journey home in the new purchase. Luckily the car was as described and apart from a very slow leak in a rear Tyre and a wheel bearing with a bit of a rumble by the 8th hour it didn't miss a beat! The car is a 4 door which some people aren't a fan of, but personally I am pretty happy with the purchase. It is basically rust free (Few bubbles from poor paint prep in the rain channels and a 5c piece sized bubble on a rear wheel arch is about all I could find. The paint is a home job and has some runs as well as a weird sort of reaction on the passenger side front door where there might be some bog that reacted to the paint??? But it is a presentable car and will be driven hard not looked at. 2 Litre Pinto engine 4 speed single rail box Lowered 2 inches on HD front springs and blocks in the rear MK2 2L front brakes AutoTechnica Bucket seats which are Mod Plated (These will be going promptly to be replaced by the cobra low backs from my Cortina) 2 Piece Roh 16" wheels (These have already been removed and replaced by the Superlites from my Cortina) The plan is to swap the 45 DCOE's from my Mk2 Cortina and then the Cortina will be for sale (Feel free to make an offer however I am in Australia), Re-make the alloy dash panels which are pretty rough, matching switch gear, put the cobra bucket seats in, fit Speedhut GPS speedo and quad gauge into the stock 2 dial dash, re-locate oil and gen warning lights to the switch panel in big LED's, Paint bumpers black (The qtr bumpers are glass so Chrome is out), De-chrome the wheel arches, fit a bigger more practical steering wheel that allows me to see how fast I am travelling, replace the cheesy led indicators on the front with some stock ones, Convert to round headlights and then pretty much drive the wheels off it! Oh and I also swapped the stereo from the Cortina into it which sounds much better. Anyway here are a few pics. Some from the advertisement. I took this one just before we jumped in it for the drive home I am quite bad at remembering to take photos but here are a couple when I got it home. Unfortunately I had to travel back to work for 2 weeks so I will have an update when I am back home. Nick
