South African Escort MK2 Sport wheels wanted


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm looking for a set of steel original wheels for my 1979 SA import Escort 1600 sport.

I gather they are slightly different to our sport wheels.

Anyone got any they would sell ?

Thanks johnny

Our of curiosity, what's the reason behind going for these over the usual choices. 

Not knocking them at all, just wondering. 😁

My 1600 Sport came into the country with brand new  8 x 13 5 spoke alloys, I just want some standard wheels, as fitted to SA sports.

Thanks, I'll have a look. mostly every thing is miles away from me , i'm down on the south coast. Once you factor in around £60 for a courier, they get a bit expensive .

LOL. Sorry that made me laugh. You being too far south far from where all the OSF parts are. Tell me about it! :wink: 🤣

Back in the mid 80s, we used to travel all over the country picking up Escort parts. We used to have to wait for the Motoring News or Exchange of Mart to come out every week hoping someone had what we needed 😄

Sometimes we would proper luck out when a mate wrote his RS off, or we stumbled across one in a breakers yard 😝
