Recommended Posts

Red, gold & white Alan Mann Racing replica mk1 Escort registration number UHX327F was stolen from a property in the Reading area on the night of Sunday 7th into Monday 8th June 2020.

The car is built to a very high standard & is immaculate inside & out with the build being overseen by the cars owner, former Ford racer Dave Brodie.

Everything in the car is period perfect. The car has a Springalex steering wheel & 140mph Twincam dials. The car is fitted with a master switch panel with switches, a battery cutoff & fuse box.

The engine is a 155bhp Lotus Twincam fitted with VJ3 cams, ‘big wing’ sump, Accralite pistons giving a Compression Ratio of 10.16 to 1 & twin 40DCOE’S.

The car has a bullet gearbox, limited slip differential & Bilstein suspension. 

The only thing not authentic to the build is the fact it has disc brakes all around instead of drums on the back.

Bodywise, the car is fitted with steel bubble arches, a bullet mirror on the drivers door & a single wiper on the drivers side only. The car is in Alan Mann racing livery of red, gold & white & is painted black in the engine bay. It has bonnet pins & no bumpers fitted.

The car has rectangular headlights.

There is a battery cutoff switch with surround on the rear panel.

The car also has extra cutouts in the bottom of the front panel.

The car is also fitted with 16" alloys

The car is very well known in the classic Ford scene as is the owner.

Anyone with any info can contact Thames Valley police

How do they get away with it, such a distinctive car stands out like a sore thumb. Bet the guy is devastated and one can only hope it’s found and quickly. Then sort the arsholes out who nicked it preferably in the old fashioned way.
