Description Ford Escort mk1 van 1970 2.0 pinto 5 speed box lotus steels p/x

Escort van ,It Has a 2.0 pinto on a twin choke webber with a mild cam .it sounds like a sewing machine .and pulls through the gears well.Ali big sump fitted
5 speed box ,Anti dive kit ,Its lowered on lotus steels with brand new tyres all round
Its modified inside slightly ,It has an aluminiun console And floor pan covers ,The door cards want replacing ,It does need a few bits sorting .but nothing serious .rear brakes bind slightly .starter occasionally sticks,probably through lack of use. .theres a few minor paint work marks .it wants finishing off better inside .

Its not a concourse van .but its extremely clean
Having new sills wings etc etc
You can see how solid the van is though ,It is ermine white ,The engine bay is clean ,Underneath is solid having been restored some 3 years ago .Theres No rust i can see ,But bare in mind its 44 years old ,The best colour Ermine white .its a nice old girl .

It has vented front discs ,It drives great . Its got a long mot and of course tax is free as its historic .

Please read this bit
At some point this van has been reshelled into a mk2 van shell .Thats probably why its so good underneath !this must have been done in the early 80's ,It has the mk1 front as pictured,I did not know this when i purchased the van and had it pointed out by a previous owner . It does not bother me at all .and i have checked its all legal with dvla etc .mk1 6 pod dash panel fitted .what old escort retains its original bits of shell these days? Not many .

Anyway its all legal registered as a mk1 1971
So free tax etc .

Reason im selling is i have far to many projects and this will help me finish another one .

Any questions please feel free to ask me .

Overall this is a very tidy little van ,Ideal for signwriting and use as is .

Only genuinely interested people please
I may px mk1/ 2 Jaguar .mk10 jaguar.mk1 gt 2 door cortina ,Nice Vw Camper

Hi. Very nice Escort van MK1. I'm from New Zealand and have been looking or something like this. Do you have any contacts in the UK where I could look into cost's of exporting into NZ if I go a head with sale?
