Classic Ford - - HOMEBUILT HERO -

As-bought,Alex’s mildly-mod­i­fied Mk2 was ba­si­cally sound and ripe for some fur­ther up­grades — once he’d roped in some mates to help him sort the body­work and paint­work, of course.

With the Es­cort now wear­ing fresh coasts of Mex­ico Or­ange, Alex cracked on with fit­ting it back up.

Alex had planned to run a stripped-out in­te­rior from the start, so in went the roll cage and not a lot else!

The body­work was in good shape apart from scabby doors, so good sec­ond-hand ones were duly sourced.

While the car was away be­ing painted by a friend, the all-steel engine build could be­gin in earnest.
