Thanks, That’s the early box will need the Mexico/RS box  

FIA regulations appendix "J"at the time spell out what is required for group 1 cars in general.
For the 1974 Escort rally championship there were many permitted modifications to both Mexcio's and RS2000's
. heavy duty engine and gearbox mounting
. heavy duty cross member
. Bilstein struts and Boreham springs
. Heavy duty sway bar bushes
. Magnesium sump shield
. Bilstein rear dampers fitted ti std. mounting points
. Heavy duty 4 leaf springs and bushes
. Std exhaust system and manifold, with bracing
. brake and fuel lines relocated inside the car
. fuel lines all steel
. Quartz Iodine lights
. Battery must stay in std position but can be up rated, as too the alternator and electrical system
. Std gearbox ratios, LSD with std diff ratio
. Engine to be std. but combustion chambers can be balanced
. Rear seats to be fitted but front seats can be replaced
. Bonnet pins, fire proof bulkheads and FIA roll cage required
. Laminated screen
. 5KG fire extinguishers
. Battery Isolation switch

Who said it was going to be finished? I’m not even going to start it! 😂 

if it’s lucky it might get some suspension fitted that’s if what’s left of the chassis rails take the weight 😳
