1979 FORD ESCORT 1600 SPORT
The 1600 Sport is a variant supplied in the South African and New Zealand Markets. It is based on a 2 door Mk2 body shell, and given a sporty exterior treatment with a front spoiler, half bumpers, spot lights, blacked out tail light panel and decal kit similar to the RS2000. Mechanically, the 1600 Kent motor was used with a mild cam, weber downdraft carburettor and close ratio 4 speed manual "muncie" box.
This car is a South African variant and is very original. The car was repainted a few years back in its original colour and presents very well. The interior is very original with the brown sports seats, 3 spoke sports steering wheel and "Sport" engraved dashboard. The car has recently had a complete underbody and engine detail, prior to shipping from South Africa.
She has spent all of her life in the hot dry climate away from the coast, so there is no sign of rust anywhere on the car.
She is due to land in Australia in the second week of October 2017 at which time the description will be updated and more photos posted.
Please feel free to contact us to discuss prior to then.
