Escort had a good go at failing it’s first scrutineering here at Brands . I forgot to tape up head lights . It’s been a very enjoyable long road building up the car . Last night I spent some time going back through the “winter projects “foram . 1972 I had my first race here at Brands in Escort Mexico so now 46 years later I can have another go . Many thanks to everyone on here who has helped me with parts and advise . Better find another winter project now .

I had a MK1 escort van with the same colours and design as that and fitted with a Twincam. I'll try and find a photo of it.

This chap seems to have a source of likely shells. Knows someone somewhere.

At a price! Can't see our delta going that route.....

Mk1 shells are getting rarer and rarer for obvious reasons. Best bet is a 2dr project car, but even they go for a lot of dosh!

New build Mk2 shell available for the rally fraternity, and someone overseas did make a new Mk1 shell by copying every panel by hand. Not sure if they made any more.....

Sure, a friend of mine was daft enough to buy a four door 1300 GT thinking he could turn it into two door model… He's now happy we convinced him to buy another bare shell. Looks like some think changing the rear wings only can convert a four door.

Showing my age, but think one of Ford’s ‘boasts’ regarding the Mk1 2 door was the fact that the whole side of the car from ‘A’ pillar to end of rear quarter was just one pressing? Supposed to result in more consistent door gap.....

Or was that another car?

One of the earlier video in the series I linked to shows a replacement rear quarter panel that is a one piece item. (In the end chopped off the upper section to the roof line to avoid the need to un-peel and rework the roof and gutter which was in good shape.


That said it seems that many of the other metal panels obtained were not as successfully made as the rear quarters.
