Sellers original description:
Ford Escort 1300XL - 120 miles Yes thats right One Hundred & Twenty Miles from new.
This car is a very very rare find.
Having covered only 120 miles from new.
& with 1 owner from new this car will not be found a 2nd time.
The car was purchased from the original Bristol St Motors, Bristol St, in Birmingham A Mrs J.C. Twigg had the car delivered & took ownership on 22/08/72.
The car has the original service book with first service due at 1,500 miles which is a free service! Imagine taking it there to claim the free service 40 years later!
Comes with all original documents including Buff Logbook, Escort Sales brochure, Radio Guarantee, maintenance chart etc etc.
The car has stood in a garage for 40 years, which must have been dry & heated as the car is in exceptional unrestored condition.
At some time the drivers door has been painted probably due to a knock in the garage but apart from that it is untouched & is stunningly mint.
The chassis, engine bay, interior trim, dash, carpets, switches etc etc have to be seen to be beleived.
