IF you’re a petrol head and you have a cool £65,000 burn­ing a hole in your back pocket you could buy a 2005 Fer­rari F430…or a FORD ES­CORT!

But this is no or­di­nary Ford Es­cort.

This orig­i­nal 1968 Mk I model is one of only 883 hand built and fit­ted with a Lo­tus twin cam en­gine.

It cost just £2,919 back in 1968 but is now worth a stag­ger­ing £65k thanks to one man’s hand­i­work.

The rusty shell of the mo­tor had to be lifted onto a trailer when Nor­man Hughes bought it – with the rest of its en­gine and body parts packed away in boxes. Nor­man, who runs Cleeve­wood Garages in Bris­tol, said: “It sounds like a lot of money but I know how much time and cash has been put into the ve­hi­cle.

“I’d say it is now bet­ter than new be­cause of the lengths we have gone to in or­der to get it right.” NOW you can see NAKED Hon­ey­suckle in her full mov­ing glory – for FREE!
