Lot 139 – Ford Escort MK2 Historic Rally Car
Estimated Value : £10,000 – £12,000
This high spec LHD MK2 Escort was campaigned successfully in Finland where it became very well known in those circles. Built with nothing else in mind other than to be competitive in Classic car rallies, a standard 1100cc 2 door car was transformed into a car capable of winning in the right hands.
Running and driving you could not build this car for twice its reserve! Supplied with Finnish papers showing it as a 1975 car, you could register it here for road use but it should be spending its time, not on the M25 but sideways somewhere deep in a Welsh forest!
