Hi all,

Bought my MK1 Escort back in January this year. Absolutely love every moment of it. Have it out and about pretty much whenever the sun is shining! The second pic is when I first bought the car. Done a lot of small tidying up jobs since then to bring it up to a standard I'm happy with. FIrst pic is of the car a few days ago after a detailing session. And the third is the interior, this is where I have done most of the work to get it looking fresh :-D.

Thanks for the welcome! Yeah sure. So it's a 1300GT, built in 1972. Pretty standard car all round to be honest. Interior was a little shabby but I've redone most of that now. The real gem on the inside were the seats, a pair of mk2 fishnet recaros. Definitely not a standard feature, so it's not for the purist, but almost mint condition and incredibly comfortable.

The history of the car is a bit of an unknown. I bought it from a garage, and because of GDPR legislation they are no longer allowed to disclose previous owners. I even contacted the DVLA and they won't give me anything either. Although I am very keen to find out where it has been in it's life time, so I may be asking round at some point whether anyone here may have owned it in the past!
