Description Ford 100e escort estate - gasser - hot rod - drag car - road legal - V8

- 1956 Ford Escort Estate with correctly registered V5 and correct engine size/number
- Radiused rear arches and substantial repair work, body has been shot blasted and primed
- New heavy duty box section chassis with welded in half roll cage.
- Car has had substantial fabrication work and welding and all this was under taken by Pete Ayres of Lite Welding Ltd/
- Car runs a nearly stock 302 HO V8 out of an 89 Mustang. The engine has had the EFI stripped off and a Holly Carb put in its place.
- From the same 89 mustang it also runs a T5 5 speed manual box and shortened 8.8" rear axle.
- Car has had a lot of time and effort spent on it to get it to where it is today, with not much needed to finish it off to a very high standard.
