Tell him he's dreamin'

Found this one on Gumtree, asking 3k, I think the third photo is the money shot
1971 mk1 ford escort 2 door | Cars, Vans & Utes | Gumtree Australia Gosnells Area - Thornlie | 1289094135
Seems fair, to quote the owner "next to no rust holes" and "Not fussed if it doesn't sell, I'll just put it away and do it myself in 10 years"

    Haha I know anythings repairable but this thing would be like granddads axe by the time you were done...
    Looks like someone wants it though he reckons its sold pending pickup.

    yeah, na, na, na, maybe.
    How about the shot gun holes in the fuel tank!
    And one in the rear brake drum even?
     
    Does comes with parcel shelf speakers though, so who knows.
    Would be pretty cool to do a rat rod take, leave virtually as is externally, but fully kitted out drivewise, brakes suspension etc. I expect it would probably attract attention from the authorities though.
     
    Might suit as a new Melb Bikie club courtesy car?

    Twin Cam:any more info Drew?
     
    As Marty asked, how long swimming, and in salt or freshwater creek?
    I'd like the wheels please, but someone should grab this if its available.
    Good job for you Drew, you need one of these beside the RS and Corty.

    I give my lefty for a twin cam in the garage Deano...
     
    This one was came up about twelve months back, from and inland town in the South West of WA so it would've been sitting in freshwater, it popped up on gumtree for a day, he obviously had some interest in it so it went to ebay apparently.
    It was a complete car engine, interior, the lot but was almost broken in half from the rust and when they pulled it out of its resting place with a piece of earth moving equipment. I wish I'd saved more pics of it.
     
    I heard from a reliable source it went for around 20k.

    oh, ok.
    For 20K it can be someone elses.
    It seems there are some 'reasonable' bargains around though, mainly mk2s'.
    Perhaps the covid pricing has stabilised for a while.
    That or its just become the new norm.

    I def think covid pricing has started to settle, im seeing prices drop slightly on things although it does seem that over all things are still achieving premiums over what 'use to be'. Which i guess if you own it is a good thing.

    Robbie, my yellow van I sold about a year ago for $15k, went to Perth, then he sold it for $23k , now it's in Gumtree for $38k , either I undercut myself bad on the sale or prices have gone mental in 12 months !!

    Yeah that the one . I was told to not put sundowner stripes on it but I know as a fact that stripes add a few $1000 to it's price. I'm not listening to people anymore...😂

    I didnt even know you had sold the yellow van!

    It does look good and im sure knowing it was built by you would add some more to the asking price.

    Once again proof we need Martys escorts as a legit business.
