    Wheeler Dealer Mk1 Escort

    'fasteddie' from here posted the ad for Wheeler Dealers on turbosport back in 2013. I saw the car here and PM'd him and he put me in contact with the people for me to arrange a viewing.

    I spent a fortune on the car bringing her to how I wanted it then I saw a genuine mk1 RS2000 that I wanted, so I sold the yellow screamer... anyway, she's now back with me... well was for 2 weeks, now having a little work done before coming home for good.

    From the show:-






    After Wheeler Dealers:-


    What I wanted and ended up with:-


    Wheeler Dealer interior:-


    What I changed:-


    I added quarter bumpers and removed the spots:-


    In 2015 she was at the Classic Car Show:-


    I satin blacked the back... not to everyone's taste...


    These are from this month:-

    Quality of the work was good. They use a garage near the studios to carry out the work. The guy who worked on the Escort, along with Ed, was the guy who was the driver of the tow truck when they bought the car. He was a huge Ford fan... when I went to see the car the six clock dash wasn't working properly so he sorted it all out.

    The producer said I could call him up if there were any issues... even though it was a 40 year old Ford!
