Ford Escort 1300 GT, 1973
Ford Escort 1300 GT Mk I, year 1973. Colour red with a black leatherette interior and red carpet. This fantastic Ford Escort was extensively restored recently. The car is in excellent condition and the car drives, steers, brakes and handles perfectly. The car looks like new! This Escort GT was sold new in Portugal, very interesting because the beautiful red colour was only available in Portugal! This Escort 1300 GT features the original 75 bhp. HC (high compression) engine. The Escort was available as 2 or 4 door model, this 2-door version certainly looks most sporty! The car features Ford light alloy wheels and a beautiful leather rimmed MotoLita sports steering wheel. The original steering wheel and the original wheels (restored) with hub caps are also present! This is a delightful classic car with simple and robust mechanics. The car is very suitable for historic (touring) rallyes and regularity events.
