    Plum Crazy - Ford's Executive Model - My Mk1 Escort 1300E Project - Picture Heavy !

    So here is my latest little project I am working on, thought I would share it, its in quite an advanced stage of restoration so I will throw some updates up over the next week or so.

    Its a rather fetching 1300E, it is going to be a road car, not destined for the track in any way, so it will be more refined than many of the cars I normally work on, I haven't thought of a nick name for it yet so I am open to suggestions

    As some of you know I have been suffering with a heart problem over the last year so a lot of the work is being done by friends as I am not allowed to do a lot of the hard jobs, so I can't claim credit for all of the work but I will accredit the work to the people involved as I go along.

    The car itself had had a single owner for all its life up until 2011, it had been garaged serviced every year and was standing with 58k Miles on the clock.

    Anyway here is the car as I purchased it:

    I had a not many years old 1300E back in the day. Probably the nicest car I ever owned.
    I drove it very fast into a tree and broke it
    I folded the steering wheel around the dash of quite a few mk1s in my time.

    Re: Ford's Executive Model - My Mk1 Escort 1300E Project - Picture Heavy !

    Orange car thread is linked in my profile, due to top speed runs being no more I am waiting for some enthusiasm to decide what to convert it back into, I keep thinking it will end up as a race car BUT I am not sure I will ever be able to race now.... so time to think again, It may just get finished and sold.


    Colour wise on this E I am going for Ford Grabber Blue, however ALL 1300E external trim will be retained.

    Have they put a stop to them now Clint? 160-170 mph in a mk1/mk2 must be mental mind

    Would love to see how the Mk2 looks now low on those 10" wheels

    Hope your health recovers, so you can get out and enjoy these toys

    Seems that way and the Mk2 would have hit 190+ - its still in the garage I think, I am sure if I move all the boxes its under them anyway.

    Surely another top speed day could be arranged especially with the mags on board? Someone somewhere will rent you their runway surely? Failing that it would be great as a track car to get you out there enjoying all the hard work! Or are track days out of the question as well as full on racing?

    I think top speed days should of been banned years ago.
    Anyone that wishes to go over 150mph in an old escort is obviously insane and a danger to themselves and anyone around them.

    Re: Ford's Executive Model - My Mk1 Escort 1300E Project - Picture Heavy !

    The car was designed for square headlamps shame they never worked that well LOL

    Anyway the most important thing to do on any conversion is to make sure there is no going back, so I fitted a gearbox tunnel, this one is from Motor Sport Tools, its a lovely fit and looks like it was meant to be there:



    Then it was time to sort the rot, so over to Mk1Matt who has just started up restoring and performing motor swaps, first stop was to fix the floors:

    This is what we were up against, the shell was very good except between the sill and the chassis rail:







    And this is how Matt went about fixing it:



























    This was pretty much the story on both sides.

    Not that there's much on this shell. I definitely seen worse

    Sorry to hear about your heart problems by the way Clint, seems you are never too young to get hit by something like this

    1968 MK1 Escort 1300GT
    1969 'Big Wing' MK1 Escort

    Keep the colour Clint, i like it and theres not many around.
    Nice work Matt aswell
    All i can contribute to this is a name, Edna is the first thing that come to mind Its got an E in it and i can picture an old girl in a purple/blue rinse colour hair do lol.
    Oh and as for the headlamps somone mentioned a set available with H4 bulb recepticles so they will work a whole lot better, but i can only find them on Ebay in Aus so once posted they will be expensive, i have concidered bonding H4 buld holders on to a spare set ive got and see how they work and the pattern they give off, just an idea.

    Another Update - Now for a fun bit, rubber is required and I don't want arches, so I have had help choosing some wheels from the guys over at stanceduk - then I gave @mk1matt the remit of getting them under the rear on the standard arches.

    He started by moving the inner tub inbound about an inch, then checked how much room that had made and then he made a new outer arch, the result is a stock looking tub - anyone who has tried a little fabrication will certainly appreciated the effort involved here, a big well done from me to Matt.

    All i can contribute to this is a name, Edna is the first thing that come to mind Its got an E in it and i can picture an old girl in a purple/blue rinse colour hair do lol.
    Oh and as for the headlamps somone mentioned a set available with H4 bulb recepticles so they will work a whole lot better, but i can only find them on Ebay in Aus so once posted they will be expensive, i have concidered bonding H4 buld holders on to a spare set ive got and see how they work and the pattern they give off, just an idea.

    I have a brand new pair of those lights, a few of us got togeather and bought a set each and got them shipped back from Aus, now i've sold my Gt they will be for sale, never fitted, i only removed one from the box to see what they were like .................. you could fit a H4 Hid light kit to them now and that would give you a cracking beam.

    Let me know if your interested, i'd just like my money back on them.

    Now we get to the purposeful stuff, making room for the engine bits, we purchased a new lower box section but reused the original slam panel

    Farmers don't wash cars they leave them outside in the rain, and when that fails they repaint them, that car is in fact white, but the moss really took hold a while back
