    It’s mostly original XL 1300 Auto but now with a 711 bottom half with the 1300 head, bit of a cam, Webber carb and manifold and exhaust.  I am the third owner from new with the last owner owning it for 20 years.  Still have the 1300 matching number Botton half Of the motor.

    Awesome pick up mate, shows that they are still out there.

    Sad to see it leaving ADL but hey its not far over the border!

    I love the classic 70s colours, browns, greens etc.

    Thanks Robbie,
     
    I am amazed no one in Adelaide had bought it.  It’s like Xmas eve now waiting till next Wednesday for it to get here.  Having said that my search has taken years, so not too long now.

    Car market for these type of cars is a bit strange. People dont need them so they are definitely a luxury item but often people dont want to pay the price premiums they are now reaching. I havent owned my car long (bit over 2 years now) and what i see listed for what i paid for is crazy.

    Correct, Robbie, arrived today about 10:30 CEVA are such a good company to deal with.  The driver called me 30 minutes before he arrived.  Now tucked up in the garage before the threatened big wet arrives.  Not had much chance to get in and under it to see what I have.  Gear selector seems extremely loose.  See other post requesting ideas on fixing this.  Glad it’s here and I can get a roadworthy completed for rego.

    Well spotted and thanks for the offer.  The owner has the original radio in storage and will give it to me once he can get access to it.  This will take in excess of 4-6 months as he is building a house.  He had fitted a modern unit with 6 disc changer and speakers etc but I don’t care for that kind of stuff so it was agreed he could remove it.  Where are you based?

    Adelaide seems to be a hotbed for Ford Escorts.  Would certainly like to have access to a mechanic like you have and your car looks the business.
