Mk 1 escort find !
« on: June 08, 2013, 21:23:40 PM »
Well i can't believe what I've found right on my doorstep, a blooming mk 1 escort with 29000 miles from new in near mint condition but has a few little dints where it looks like the old man has moved it an bumped into things !!



It has not been on the road since 2010 and its owned by an old chap that may want to part with it so i have left a note and i will call in there tomorrow to have a chat.

Luck find.

I found a old cortina, '74, a 2.0 automatic in mint condition. Always maintained by the ford dealer and stored indoors. The old man was very ill and wanted to get rid of it. I offered him 1000 euro's for it but then the family stepped in and wanted top money for it. They did not accept the offer and 1 year later, after he died, the car ended up at the car breakers for 50 euro's and got crushed.

The owners wife contacted me yesterday to let me know the situation with the car but as he has just had a heart attack and has power of attorney over the car and brothers house who has sadly passed away they cannot do much at present but according to the neighbours they only wanted £2000 for it  :o

I've seen rotten shells with no ID sell for much more than £2000  ;)

The rally boys pay silly money for them  ;)

Cheers Dave

The cars come from Macedonia, appently I am told it was once a dumping ground for Ford.

When a model was coming to the end of it's life they basically sold them there for cost just to get rid of them hence why there is loads of them & due to the climate plus people never used to really scrap stuff.

The guy may have knocked as much as £1000 off the 2nd hand market because he flooded it.

He was bringing over 18 cars a week at one point but has now wised up lol
