Planned spec: bub­ble arches, 2.1 Zetec, Quaife ’box

What’s the story: “Here is my home­built 1969 Mk1 Es­cort RS1600 replica, which I have been build­ing over the last three years,” says Dan. “The whole car was stripped to bare shell, sand­blasted then the met­al­work done — it needed a new front panel, two front floor­pans, new wings and a full al­loy bub­ble arch kit be­fore it was painted in Frozen White. The en­gine is a 2.1 Zetec with the full Retro Ford kit, backed up by a five- speed Quaife Pro ’box.”

“It’s fully trimmed on the in­side with the par­cel shelf, rear quar­ter cards and dash­top flocked, and new car­pet and un­der­lay fit­ted. It should look and sound great.”
