1976 Ford Escort 1300 L

Transmission : Manual
Mileage : 93975km
Colour : Yellow

The Escort was frequently the best-selling car in Britain during the 1980s and 1990s. A total of more than 4.1 million Escorts of all generations were sold there over a period of 33 years.

Ford New Zealand’s Seaview plant in Lower Hutt built 1.1 and 1.3-litre versions, initially as Deluxe (1.1) and Super (1.3) two-door sedans plus panel vans. The four-door sedan was added in 1970. Trim levels were revised after the 1972 UK facelift with just one run of 1.3XLs (with the GT instrument pack) before these were downgraded to ‘L’ trim. Base and L trims were offered to the end of the Mk I run.

The squarer-styled Mark II version appeared in January 1975. The first production models had rolled off the production lines on 2 December 1974.
The “L” and “GL” models (2-door, 4-door, estate) were in the mainstream private sector, the “Sport”, “RS Mexico”, and “RS2000” in the performance market, the “Ghia” (2-door, 4-door) for a hitherto untapped small car luxury market.
Production ended in Britain in August 1980, other countries following soon after.
Our Ford Escort 1300 L on offer requires some TLC with regards to the yellow exterior paint, you can see she has had a blow over but would require a refresh which for a car of her age is to be expected. The interior looks good with a beige interior and black carpeting. The engine bay which holds the 1300 engine requires a bit of a clean-up from Anti-rust being sprayed. The Escort has the original two sets of keys and books however the service book has no service history.

If you are looking for a bit of a project that would look great once completed then this girl is for you.
