These Escorts are just sitting in some farmers rickety shed out near Echunga in the hills. There’s four Mk1’s and a Mk2 and they all look to be complete, although it’s clear that none of them have moved in recent history. It’s impossible to discover a find like this and not picture the latent possibility these cars have – a stock resto RS2000 or Mexico? A period rally car with bubble flares and a BDA running through big Webers? A tough streeter with a modern turbocharged Cosworth installed? Or a modern style rally car like they’re building in the UK a the moment with a Honda F20C and sequential 6 speed? Or with unlimited dollars, one of each?
I’d be willing to guess that passing motorists would have tried to buy these at some stage. Everybody has their price – I wonder what his is?
