Matt's 78 MK II 4 dr
My first car was a 1980 RS2000 4 door that I bought back in 1995. I then wrote it off sadly but bought a shell and transferred the bits across into a 2 door RS.
I then bought a MK 1 RS and another MK 2 RS.
Then in 2003 I found out I had Leukaemia and ended up just selling all 3 for about $3k. (Something I regret everyday).
Anyway, long story short, I thought screw it and bought another escort to rekindle the passion. I couldn't afford another RS so I bought a 1978 4 Door. I think it might be a rally pack but not sure. It has
Front spoiler with escort written backwards
I bought it from a lady in Shepparton who has owned it for 8 years. It has remarkable little rust for it age. There is a bit in the firewall at bottom of heater bubble.
All the electrics work and the interior is great.
Here are some photos below.
Immediate plans are just to fix a few thingsup and just general tidy up.
I have replaced the head as the old one was rooted and fired it up today. I have a vid i'll try to upload.
Will do engine and gearbox, suspension down the track
Look forward to comments.
P.S. Have forgotten the joys of driving without power steering. Jesus!!
Engine bay after replacing head (2 sparkplugs were frozen in) and a bit of a tidy up.
