1976 FORD ES­CORT MK1

OWNER: DAVID THOMPSON SR

NZ Performance Car - - Super Score -

Orig­i­nally built by Ross and Jim Stone, and cam­paigned in the Bank of New South Wales se­ries with a 12,000rpm 1300cc, it was later brought to New Zealand. Along the way, it ‘lost’ that 1300. Hav­ing been com­peted hard for a few decades, the Mk1 was pur­chased and re­stored to its first New Zealand look by cur­rent owner David. The car re­tains as many orig­i­nal parts as pos­si­ble, although the al­loy cage has been re­placed. The Brian Hart 416B twin-cam that it’s run while here in New Zealand re­mains and was also re­built.
