A unique and quite possibly unrepeatable opportunity to purchase a completely original un modified Ford Escort MK2 1.3 GL with just 4392 miles from new.

Finished in the factory Signal Yellow, the car presents beautifully, the 36 years of careful storage and maintenance is testament to the cars impeccable condition.

The paint finish is consistent throughout and retains the deep shine that it would have had all those years ago. The panel fit and gaps are beautifully straight and remain consistent with that of a factory fresh example, the factory stamps are present on all panels.

The car comes with the original Ford Sports road wheels which have been fitted with a brand new set of tyres. They were previously fitted with the original Goodyear Grand Prix tyres, the very ones that it had on when it rolled off the production line, however they were showing signs of perishing hence a new set of tyres were fitted (Of course the originals have been kept)

Mechanically the car is superb. It drives like brand new and does not feel anything like its age. It would be more than happy being used every day and will easily flow with modern traffic...however, we very much doubt that the new owner will use it every day!

The original service book is present and shows 5 stamps plus an independent garage has just carried out a complete, full service and tune up on the car and renewed the brakes.

This truly exceptional example has had just 2 owners from new and is complete with the original operating guides and manuals, original service booklet, old tax discs etc...

In summary, cars of this calibre are very seldom found nor offered on the open market. The Signal Yellow alone, makes this a very rare car in GL trim... Link this with the truly outstanding condition and the mileage and you have a very, very rare car indeed.
