hi bought it 2 years ago as a running wreck. Spent since the rebuilding it, it is a genuine gartrac built car except it has now got a yb cossy fitted instead of the v6 2.8i. It is the proper extended version with all new fabricated inner wings and Gartrac suspension not a modified mk4 running sierra bits.

Gartrac used to build the works MkIIs, they then were consultants on the RS1700T GpB project and used their knowledge to build RwD and 4wD Escorts like this for rallying and rallycross.

RS1700T

regarding is it a G4 i presume you are thinking because it is now a 4cyl. well the G4 was when Gartrac as a company did the rwd conversion to a mk4 escort. The G3 was the first type with usually a BDA in it mostly used for competition. The G6 was developed with the XR centre from Southampton who marketed the vehicle from new.
I do have more pics and spec i will post later .

Yup - slightly tongue in cheek!

Wasn't aware of the XR connection - learn something new every day!

Thanks for sharing - it's one car I've always lovedcloud9

Anyone else think that the car doesn't look real in the first pic???

Don't get me wrong, I'm sure it IS real but for some reason that pic makes it look like a model or computer image!!!!

I see what you mean, looks like a cut'n'shut with a lighter front than the rear. That's the big arches for you!!
