Escort MK2 1600 Sport
For sale on behalf of a good friend of ours. It is only for sale due to him having the opportunity to purchase back a concours XR3i that he sold five years ago.
Ford Escort MK2 1600 Sport. This is a RHD Import from South Africa. All tax and duty has been paid and NOVA registration done. We will complete all the paperwork to register in your name as the new owner. This is a very original old car which doesn't look like its ever had any welding done. Getting really hard to find original cars like this now.
Body - Export spec 1600 Sport shell which has similar strengthening on the front end to our RS models. Shell is in excellent condition for its age with no signs of any welding having been done or needed. Panel gaps are good. Paintwork is nice and tidy. Perfectly useable and very original looking. Few age related marks on the paint, but nothing more than you would expect from a car of this age. Few "jacking up" dents on chassis rails, but overall, super solid and original.
Mechanics - Very quiet 1600 crossflow which starts first turn. No smoke or nasty noises. Original 4 speed gearbox with quick shift. Good clutch and brakes. Carb may need a slight adjustment for the different climate, but seems to run fine.
Interior - Original brown Sport interior which is in very good order. No rips or tears, good original door cards with no speaker holes. Good carpet, dashtop and headlining.
Wheels - Original deep dish South African steels with good 175/70/13 tyres.
This is a very original old car which hasn't been messed with.
