What’s the story: “I had a fea­ture back in the Oc­to­ber 2016 is­sue with some of my cars, but I now have a cou­ple of new ad­di­tions!” says Richard. “The Mk1 Es­cort is run­ning an ST170 en­gine on throt­tle bodies with ME221 man­age­ment and Group 4 coil- overs — it’s mint and is not far off hit­ting the road now.”

“The Anglia 105E has a 2-litre Zetec on twin 45s, plus the full Mil­ton set- up and banded steel wheels. It’s now run­ning and driv­ing, but at some point I’ll have to bite the bul­let and strip it down for paint.”

Zetec in­side: ST170 looks right at home in the Es­cort’s su­perb en­gine bay.

The fin­ish on Richard’s Es­cort is bor­der­ing con­cours...

2-litre Zetec on We­ber carbs now pow­ers the 105E.

Mk1 wears the clas­sic south Lon­don look.

Anglia sits low on banded steels and awaits paint.
