As the seller points out, you’re probably more likely to see one of the more sporty versions of the Ford Escort for sale nowadays than this fairly base model. That makes this 1300L pretty rare!
Having had a sympathetic restoration, this Escort has flown through the MOT and is now ready to drive. If you’re into nostalgia and like car shows, this one will draw loads of attention and comments like, “I remember when my dad bought one of these…”.
From the seller: “Here for sale is a very nice Escort Mk1 1300L. Matching numbers car.
This is a genuine UK car, not an import that seem to be flooding the market. It was previously in dry storage for many years, tucked away down here in Cornwall.
You’re more likely to see a Mexico or RS than see another one of these models.
These were the car of choice for the working man’s transport back in the seventies. They were everywhere then.”
