*Iconic Escort Mk2 Mexico
*Recently restored to a very high standard
*Only completed circa. 5 miles since restoration
*Matching number car


Presented is a rare opportunity to purchase an immaculate and fully restored example. This model, manufactured on 7th April 1978, has only completed only some 5 miles since its full and complete restoration, which was undertaken by the vendor to the highest of standards – down to the very last nut and bolt. The car has been in its current ownership since 2013, and we are informed that the bodywork, paintwork, interior, mechanicals and electrics are all in excellent better than new condition – with all the panels being original. The car also drives incredibly well. Rarely do such examples come to the open market – this a unique opportunity.
