    Monty - Mk11 Escort Cossie

    Alright fellas, I have been away from the classic ford scene for about 5yrs now but have been quietly working away on my mk11 in between house moves and general life stuff. But at last i have finally got the car back on the road

    Cant wait to get the car to a few events this summer and see some of the amazing cars and people from this site that have been a huge help and inspiration during my latest build.

    Here are a few pics, sorry about the shit camera, i will upload better images later.

    Looks very nice! The same wheels as mine, those wheels really suit an arched Mk2. What tyres are you running?

    Hoogi...I have to admit that it was that first pic of your car which made me decide on the wheels

    But as for the rest of it i can only dream of having the sort of spec and level of detail that you are achieving on yours... truly amazing mate!!

    Re: Monty - Mk11 Escort Cossie

    I was just thinking what a superb quality finish you have on yours.............very, very tidy.............I really do like that

    The Engine bay looks mint................I think yours is perfect - and after all if they were all the same it would be a bit boring.

    What sort of engine spec have you and how does she drive - keen to know

    I'm a little worried once mine's on the road that the power is going to out weigh my driving ability

    They're 9 x 16...........although Image don't advertise that size on their Website

    I'm just running different offsets for front and rears (obviously I hear you say )- 245/35 tyres

    Hope that helps

    Anyway, just waiting for Monty to spec his engine

    I'm a little worried once mine's on the road that the power is going to out weigh my driving ability
    I have had the escort for 16yrs now so have got used to the performance in stages from Pinto to standard cossie to stage 3.
    I am sure you will be fine at least you are getting straight into a car with decent grip and breaks for the power you will have.
    The only trouble i had is they drive so well its easy to get over confident to quickly... i have just been lucky enough to miss hard objects

    The engine is standard except GrpA head gasket, basically stage 3 but with standard T3 turbo so running less boost so around 315bhp. It is 5 linked, atlas, Quaife ATB LSD, coilovers etc.

    I have an L8 to go in and am looking for a T34 or similar turbo to go on at the moment but not sure were to get one or who to do the work, any ideas?

    Monty,

    Think we can see a common thread here..............everyone with a MKII never really finishes the rebuild

    And Andy is on the money when he mentions Joe (GSM) he knows his onions and will give you what "you" want at the right buget - produces reliable, drivable motors "with pace"

    Glad it wasn't your one, wasn't a nice thing to go through if you believe the stories after I was found! Super clean like yours, same colour, monty arches and similar or the same wheels can't really remember it was about 6 years back!

    Is it going to be on the Ts stand at Cf show?

    Lesson learned... never drive off with your bonnet pins undone with a fiberglass bonnet




    Still made the classic ford show with my old battered omega blue bonnet.. it did raised a few eyebrows

    Hi, and thanks.. fronts are 8x15 with a ET 0 and rears are 9x15 ET -12
    This seems to be a standard offset for a MK11 with these arches as they where brought straight off the shelf from Revolution.
