1982 Ford Escort Mk3 1.3L - MINT condition For Sale

Early Mk3 Ford Escort 1. 3L that’s just benefitted from a comprehensive but light restoration by specialist professionals as part of a classic car magazine series.
- 1. 3L with rare optional headrest cushions
- 84, 400 miles, fully serviced
- New cambelt & water pump
- Unleaded head
- Original stereo
- Professionally resprayed in original colour to v high standard
- MOT to May 2021

We bought the car last year because it was an honest, solid example and had a remarkably sweet engine. It drove spot on too, and the Celtic Bronze paintwork caught plenty attention.

Pretty much everything worked, so we simply set about making the car as close to showroom fresh as we could and did an unleaded conversion. That’s what I reckon we’ve achieved and wow does it transport you back to 1981.

Work done over the past year:
Brakes checked – good power and balance
Unleaded head conversion
Water pump and cambelt
New radiator
New aerial
Gear linkage rebuilt with new custom brass bushing
& more
Full interior valet including steam cleaning of the seats
A few rust blemishes dealt with:
Welded in three small plates; NSR wheelarch front, NSF lower wing, OSF below aerial
Resprayed all but the roof

What isn’t exactly perfect:
The engine bay hasn’t been tidied up particularly but the car doesn’t leak a drop of anything and is in perfect working order.
Rear seat belt buckle straps are a bit aged, and one has come apart.
Heated rear screen only two elements work properly – just about enough to clear but not ideal
Small rip on driver’s seat bolster

Summary:
Rare chance to get an early Mk3 Escort that’s highly original and in perfect running order. We’re looking for £4500 ONO
