BUILDER: DAR­REN LUCK FROM: UK

Classic Ford - - READERS PROJECTS SPECIAL -

Planned spec: re­stored shell, 2-litre ST170, Type- 9 five- speed

What’s the story: “I bought this Mk1 four- door seven years ago, then about a year in, cut the front end off be­cause it was rot­ten and thought, what have I done?” ex­claims Dar­ren.

“I left it at the bot­tom of the garage for an­other four years, but a few choice words from my other half and a point in the right di­rec­tion from Mark at Es­cort Tec, and its re­build was back in busi­ness!”

“My el­dest son and I have now been tin­ker­ing with it for the last cou­ple of years on and off. We’ve done all of the work to­gether in­clud­ing re­build­ing the ST170 en­gine that will grace the en­gine bay, and hope­fully we will have it done in time for next year’s Clas­sic Ford Show.”

Best of luck, Dar­ren and son!

Dar­ren and his lad are hop­ing to get the Es­cort fin­ished in time for the Clas­sic Ford Show. Front end body­work in progress. ST170 en­gine will be go­ing un­der the bon­net.
