The Escort was a 36-year-long success for Ford of which there were six generations, yet survivors of certain models are now surprisingly few and far between and, according to the vendor, this extremely-smartly presented 1300 Sport is one of just 24 or so examples currently licensed for the road. An October 1976 build, it's had just three owners, the most recent of whom treated it to an extensive two-year-long mechanical and body restoration by the RSC Body Centre of Market Drayton, which included a glass-out respray in its original colour of Signal Orange. He now considers the bodywork, paintwork and engine to be 'excellent', the manual gearbox 'very good' and the (original) Black cloth interior trim 'good'. The Escort is displaying a total mileage of 38,500 and is offered complete with original owners' manual and service book, photos and dialogue of the work carried out, V5C and MOT valid into July.
