Mk 2 Escort 2 door - £2,250?!

Postby Doive » 10 Feb 2006, 15:55

What's so great about this car? Looks to me like a boggo standard Escort 1.3 GL, just like the one my dad used to drive. So what makes it more valuable than this Hartge modified M5?

Well, the Beemer's actually £3995 minimum, and the Escort is an absolute minter - I've seen 'restored' Kadetts in worse condition up at £2-3000.

Having said that, bet there's a few people after a new shell for their RS1800s......

Incidentally, whats with this "I estimate power output at over 355bhp" ? Does he not have a dyno sheet? Sounds more like 'the engine's 355bhp at a guess'....

Ok, I was so shocked at the price that I went and searched for an e34 M5, and that one happened to be one of the first I found. Even so, it is a completely standard escort, albeit a clean one, commanding the same price as a decent shape M5. Crazy if you ask me.

If I was a 'FORD' lover then I'd probably pay that....
