I think there is and english Ford place in Victoria called Classic Ford or something along those lines failing that it would be relatively cheap to get one from the UK.

Just had a rumage through my odds and sods box, only managed to find one. If you find another or really get stuck pm me.
Maybe try other models too, my TD Cortina appears to have some similar but don't quote me that they are the same.
Other than that as previously mentioned try a fastener shop, some shiny stainless ones would look a treat.

Mike at Yesterford in Bayswater can probably help but I'm surprised it's not a pretty standard metric nut on a mk2

surely you wouldn't have to resort to having one made ? I am sure this isn't what you need but it's a seller on Ebay in UK maybe someone like that could direct you

there are a number of Escort FB groups.

AUSTRALIAN SMALL FORD RS ST GT CARS & PARTS FOR SALE & WANTED
Ford Escorts Australia (Contact admin to join)

are both pretty active

there's also retrobolt.co.uk and escortrs.co.uk that often have small parts in stock.
