Time for a new owner

It's time to find a new custodian for my Pine/Lime Escort Sundowner. It has been listed for the next Shannon's Auction. Here's a link to it; https://www.shannons.com.au/.../2022.../VE4067Z5F4ED3MAK/ We've had a great time together traveling all over the country to many events and shows as well as social and cruise events. Happily I still have a matching numbers Lemon/Lime 2L Escort Sundowner, 1978 Fireglow Transit Sundowner and 1970 Twin Cam Escort in the garage waiting for restoration!

    everyone loves the Transits now.
    I used to have one for about 5 years when I was younger.
    Gloss midnight black, chrome wheels.
    Spoiler on the front.
    Single rear opening door
    Used virtually no juice.
    Used to take it everywhere, great at the beach, and loadingall sorts of stuff in the back.
    I wonder where it is now?
    I wish I still had it.
    Definitely the best Tonka I ever owned. :)
    Good luck with the Shannons sale, $65k will help your next project get underway for sure.
