Description

Presenting this 1980 Ford Escort MkII 1.1 'L' with just 42,000 miles & two previous local keepers from new Current keeper of circa nineteen years - Totally unrestored example EQUIPMENT: Final production 'L' models for 1980 were upgraded to 'GL' specification that includes, chrome bumpers, rubber body mouldings, bright window trims, non locking petrol cap, heated rear window, square headlamps, dual chrome door mirrors, 'GL' steel road wheels, houndstooth cloth upholstery EXTERIOR: Finished in Cordoba Beige, this wonderfully original example remains totally unmolested & unrestored. The paintwork is believed to be largely original with some minor age related dings. The suspension strut tops are solid with the all important chassis number stamp still visible. Sills are again original & excellent, floor pans and chassis rails are perfect with no needed or previous welding - Every Escort enthusiasts dream! INTERIOR: Optioned with the contrasting Brown Houndstooth cloth upholstery with Bitter Chocolate door panels & matching carpets. Having covered just 42,000 miles from new, the vunerable vinyl door panels, headling & carpets are in excellent order. Sadly after many years in storage, the seat coverings have deteriorated & will require replacements. ENGINE & TRANSMISSION: Ordered new & built as a 1.1 L using the 1098cc Crossflow four cylinder engine coupled to a four speed transmission. After being parked for three years without running, our workshop has carried out a service that includes replacement oil, oil filter & spark plugs as a precaution. After connecting a fresh battery, the engine fired immediately & runs fantastically well. Before her latest period in storage, the Escort was treated to a brand new clutch system as well as five brand new tyres & has covered less than 200 miles since. On the road, the Escort drives exceptionally well in all departments. HISTORY FILE: Known to us for over a decade, this original Escort has been locally owned & has remained within a five mile radius since new! Owned by the current keeper for nearly two decades & has been mainly stored off road in this time which has certainly helped in preserving the originality - something the gentleman was most keen to do. Please note, this is the first time this example has been on the market in nearly 20 years, a very rare opportunity. SUMMARY: One of the final MkII Escorts produced & registered, remaining original & unrestored. Locally owned from new & now ready for her next lucky owner to either enjoy as is or restore back to mint condition. PRICING & DETAILS: Sold for further improvement and or restoration.
