    MK1 Escort Windscreen pillar

    Hi Tim

    do you know if Magnum have made any outer front windcreen pillars, maybe called the outer door jamb or if they have any plans to make them? From the top of the windsrceen/door aperture down to the top of the scuttle/A pillar. I realise these would have to try and incorporate the rain gutter somehow.


    The new bodyshells on sale at Motorsport Tools must have used something new.

    I've tried contacting Magnum directly but haven't had a reply.

    Cheers
    Rob

    Hello Rob,

    Sincere apologies missed this one. They have just made a complete pillar, with A post and 3/4 of the sill included. Currently being trial fitted and once confirmed good will be put into production.

    Hi Tim
    I'm still watching this with interest.
    I also keep checking their site as well, I don't suppose you do have any further updates by any chance do you.
    Cheers

    I see they are now on Magnum's website Tim.
    As of yet no price though.

    Not sure what's going on with the contact form on their site either as I can't seem to submit my enquiry to them about it.

    The email I've tried sending them bounced back too.

    That is uncanny as I literally just asked them, no stock no forecast at the moment. We have manufacturing forecast up to the end of March and they are not available in that time.

    How strange, unless someone is telling porkies then why bother putting them up on their website.

    I suppose it partly boils down to what they call "coming soon-please enquire" which is the quote on their site.

    If they've told you they're not manufacturing them between now and march then hopefully in the next manufacturing batch after that.

    Yes, we are desperate for these as plenty of customers have asked for them. Unfortunately everything is running a bit slow at the moment.

    I managed to get an email through to them and this was the reply.

    Hi. The outer door frame should hopefully be available later in the year. Price around £200 +VAT each.

    Thanks

    I wasn't anticipating quite that much, maybe 150 aside.

    We now have a price on Magnums website, but they're still only saying late this year.

    Re: MK1 Escort Windscreen pillar

    I have recently found out these are not made at Magnums facility here in the UK.
    He didn't tell me where they're made but I suppose a good guess would be China.

    This panel isnít made in our Factory in Rochdale hence the delay. I know they have been loaded onto a container which was due 1st week in Jan but this has already changed for one reason or another. Keeping fingers crossed for sometime in jan but with the way the world is at the moment no guarantees.


    This was the reply I got when contacting Magnums.

    Just to confirm they are not made in China. They are manufactured by an OEM Manufacturer that also make many American Classic Car panels including complete shells.

    We have these on back order and as stated above due in Jan? Fingers crossed.

    Also just noticed that the price of them on their website has jumped from £246 to £300 each. And the rain gutters to go with them are up a bit too.

    Yes price increase from Magnum on many of the panels, reflecting the cost of steel, transport etc.
