Biased as I’m a big Mk 2 Escort fan. This one looks lovely. Understated colour’s a nice change from ‘standard’ Ford red/blue/yellow etc and the mods are nicely subtle. Don’t know what the running gear is unfortunately.

It started life as a 1100L but running a 1600 now

I had a 1600 Sport in same colour but with X pack arches and 8'' Alley-Cats back in the day. Also fitted with a 1600 crossflow, albeit 1660 race spec. All bought for less than £1200, which gives you an idea of how long ago it was. smile

This looks great too.

I've never wanted an MG but that is ffffffffffffin nice, that engine install is superb. I hope the rest of the running gear is suitably upgraded:-)

Apparently it runs a 5-litre Coyote V8 built by Roush Performance that makes 500 bhp and 475 lb/ft of torque with a LR Defender MT82 six-speed manual gearbox mated to a Ford 8” back axle.

Bought it for the bonnet, realised it wouldn't fit and so chucked it on the roof instead?

Possibly. Or letters. Have to say, if does look a bit odd.

I'd have preferred it without the side pipes and roof scoop, but I'd still take it.

Me too.


The other bit that I'd sort is the chrome surrounds from A to B pillar and not following the same style from B to C pillar. A relatively minor update needed, the big stuff has more than been taken care off upfront.
