We’re always suckers for a tidy Ford Escort and this one certainly ticks all the boxes… a lovely 1973 MK1 Ford Escort A.V.O. Mexico!
MK1 and MK2 Ford Escort prices have been rocketing over the last few years, so if you don’t fancy spending a fortune restoring one, this one is just the ticket and is ready to enjoy right now! We found this one for sale online, the listing states “Daytona Yellow originally and still today, Fully detailed and re trimmed interior better quality than the original but in keeping with the original design. Burton engine build (thought to be original engine) the 1601cc cross flow now boasts almost 1700 cc and sounds amazing with a Dyno printout showing a very healthy 125.1 bhp; Acralite pistons, double cam chain, ported head, 345 cam, full steel bottom end, electronic ignition and twin Webber 45’s all add to the glory…
A type 9 5 speed gearbox (RS Bell Housing) , Group 4 cross member and mounts, Spax Suspension, original 73 alloys (fully reconditioned and polished with near new Continentals all round plus much more can also be found. Basically it was fully restored around 10 years ago then only driven to shows and for dry weather pleasure since, it was kept to look very standard but with a few modern day extras, in my opinion making it a better car than the day it left the factory.”
