Ford Escort Rally Car (1978)

This Ford Escort Rally car with Group 4 shell comes from Northern Ireland. The car has been with its last owner for ten years and comes with an official MSA Competition log book. It has taken part in many Enniskillen Motor Club tarmac sprints and is ready for service and use.

The rally car comes with an impressive specification and thousands of pounds worth of valuable parts. The engine is an eight valve Pinto engine with Big Valve head, steel rods and dry sump and running on 48 Webers and we are told cost over £5500 alone. It is reputed to produce around 210 BHP and was built by respected rally engine builder Reggie Britton. The Escort also boasts an Omex management system, 5 speed Quaife dog box, semi floating back axle with limited slip differential, Facett twin fuel pumps, Bias pedal box, 4 pot calipers, XR3 rear brakes and coil over springs.
The body was stripped down, sand blasted and rebuilt by the famous HASS Motorsport with roll cage, then re-painted and built up. The Escort is quite simply outstanding to drive. For a time it was with Classic and Sports Car Ltd in Yorkshire. One of their Malton Coachworks technicians is involved in the local rally scene and has test driven and checked it over and found it to be a superb machine that would cost a fortune to build. The car was taken in part exchange and we are offering it at a bargain rate being beyond our normal more sedate vehicles.
