1978 Ford Escort Mk2 Estate

Still a work in progress, but will get there eventually.

Naturally-Aspirated Street Function Under-Construction

I have had the car for four years now been working on it since December 2010. Had it on the road for a wee bit but it needed love :)
The engine is a 2l out of a Cortina, its going to have a 1600 head probably worked up a bit with 45mm twin Webbers.
The car has been stripped way over board for what i was planning, it has had a new floor pan and a slam panel.
I also had to repair the guards and cut all rust out, por15 the rust and then primed over it.
The whole car has been skimmed with bog (better be straight) ;) then painted with brilliant white in upoll.
