1973 Ford Escort Mk1 – RHD Import

South African MK1-1


Up for sale:  One 1973 Ford Escort Mk1 import from sunny South Africa.


Its in very good order for its age and starts runs and drives. All import duty and tax has been paid and NOVA registration done. Will need motd and uk registered but we can help with this process. Overall a very good strong shell with nice paint. With a little tlc in the interior department it could make a very very nice car.


Body – Mk1 Escort 2 door shell. Very original with its original inner wings, strut tops, sills, arches floors. Looks to have only had a repair in the spare wheel well and drivers side outer footwell. The drivers side footwell has not been done the best but if someone pays the asking price we are happy to repair this properly with a replacement panel. Panel gaps are good and the paint is lovely with only a few very minor marks on it. Overall a very good strong shell which is one of the nicest mk1 shells ive seen for a while. RS decals fitted.



1300 crossflow engine which starts and runs well. Standard 4 speed box. Car drives well and everything feels quite tight. All suspension and brakes appear to be standard and in good order.



Car still has its original rubber mat rather than carpet. good door cards, headlining and rear seat. Front seats are aftermarket and have no rips or tears but dont look quite right. Standard two clock dash and standard steering wheel.



13″ Minilite copies with good tyres.


As previously mentioned with a minor amount of work this could be a very very good car. Please feel free to come and view the car. I have access to a ramp if required so you can look underneath. Delivery can also be arranged if required. Please ask for a quote.


Thanks for looking…

Ford Escort Mexico Mk1 – Genuine AVO Car




Here is a very rare opportunity to acquire an appreciating classic in superb,original condition.

A MK1 Escort Mexico in the rarest colour of Copper Bronze.

A known AVO club car, believed to be one of only 3 currently in existence, and only manufactured in this colour for 1 year.
Original & unmolested, the car is immaculate throughout. It received a sympathetic nut & bolt restoration some 10 years ago, and has hardly been used since, living a pampered life.

During restoration, the only welding required was to the base of the rear wheel wells and a small patch on the chassis rail. This is all photographically documented. The car was restored with usability in mind as the underfloor was painted and detailed,then waxoyled. The car was polybushed throughout and drives like a nearly new vehicle.
The car has only had 5 owners from new and covered a mere 67,000 miles. The last 2 were neighbors, and she hasn’t been offered for sale for well over 20 years.

She needs to be seen to be appreciated. I have just put a new MOT on her, without advisories. The tester is checking his mattress for funds, as he fell in love with it ( He’s know his AVO Fords, and owns another Mexico…)

These cars don’t come up very often with this provenance, in this condition, let alone in copper bronze. Surely a must for the serious collector.
I would consider other interesting cars in P/X

Thank You
