im from sydney. to be a bit more specific id prefer a running car, or even one with no motor or box. and flared guards, not the bolt on type.

Where were you a few years ago, I had a mk1 2 door with a pinto & a basic mk2 cortina that I sent to the wreckers because no one wanted them

The blue escort looks like my first one. I paid $400 for it. It was a rare 1975 model with pop out rear windows. I bought it for the motor but i blew a head gasket a week after i bought it.
Sold it to a guy who was going to put a cosworth in it. Never saw the car again.

My one was sold to guy in preston victoria.
I think it ended up with the cossie and then painted black and arched. There wasnt many 1975 model cars produced as mk 2 production had commenced at the time.
Ive just bought a late 1974 two door. Its pretty rough but straightish...wont be letting this one go that the one i did 15 years ago.
