The Cosmic Blue and White Trim paint scheme was chosen to make the car a head turner and a show winner. It started with a very solid Mk I Escort shell, full paint and panel completed by Preston Panels. The front bar was deleted to better appreciate the beautiful style of the Mk I Escort body shape. A Mk II 2L Pinto motor was sourced to give it enough power to be enjoyed on the road, this was fully rebuilt by Duggans. It has been quite a few club runs and is a regular trophy winning car. An extremely detailed and high quality built car by the Horder family and it will not disappoint the most fussy small ford or vintage car fan.

Trophy winning car including All Ford Day 'Best Escort' 2017 & 2018, Small Ford Day 'Best Escort Mk I' 2017 & 2018 and lots more.

It is sold with both sets of rims – Globes and Simmons (White).

The roof is currently white vinyl wrapped but can be removed within minutes if the new owner prefers the look of the car in full Cosmic Blue.

More build pictures and a walk around video available to be sent to interested parties.

This is up there with the best and most comprehensive Escort builds within Australia so don’t miss out if you want that special show quality small Ford without all the head aches of a full build process. The sell price is far below the actual cost of this extensive build.

No time wasters - only serious buyers. The car is available for viewing in Doncaster upon appointment.
