    Hi - no. A friend of mine owned it, and sold it to me. It's lovely, in really good condition for a car of it's age and drives gorgeous. I have been approached by 2 different people that want to buy it already, and I've only had it for 1 day . The plan is to store it away out of site and use it over the next few years, but everything is for sale at the right price and if the price is right i'll just sell it this week.

    Re: Looking for my old mk1 escort GLL 51N

    Thats cool thank you for your reply. I went at looked at it when the guy wanted 10750 for roughly 6 weeks ago and he had completely lied about it. The car was not restored 6 years ago as it was in my ownership and i never done anything apart have a leaky gearbox fixed. He also said the wheels and tyres were new but they were the same jbw minilites with westlake tyres i have fitted in 2010. I sold the car to a guy called olly and he stripped the good bits i had on it and flogged it on. I noticed it had an oil leak and a gearbox leak plus a lot more bad rust patches. In your original message it had ?'s i was wondering if this was a price at all or something else that didnt script over properly? Kind regards.

    8,500 Buys it from me this week, as i've arranged someone to collect it and put it in storage miles away from me. It is in really good condition, but not concourse/mint and no structural rust/holes. The handbrake ratchet doesn't work, and the original drivers door lock barrel spins around inside the lock housing, but it hasn't been tampered with it has just failed over time. So it just needs a new door lock and handbrake lever. It's running on coilovers, sports exhaust, 1600 crossflow, twin choke carb, still has the gold wheels on and all the original interior
