  1. dublin boy added a post in a topic Ford Escort Mk1 (x2)   

    Looking forward to both, but especially the standard body version, it would look great as an RS 2000, if you could get decals for it, I'd even be happy to see a basic 1100cc Mk1
    Keep it up Andy.

    Bristol used/reproduced  the BMW engines under  license from AFN. The technology was pre war, BMW 328 for example. Bristol only started to manufacture cars after WW2.
    The Ace had 3 engines during it's lifespan, AC's own engine, the BMW sired Bristol engine and then the Ford straight six, which with triple carbs and a Mays cylinder head was the fastest of them all.
    Great work on the front end JC.

    Local modification I'd imagine JC.
    There was a category in the UK back in the 70's, all sorts of thing were allowed, Jag XK 150 with wide slicks and a spoiler, Beetle with F1 suspension etc. It was called Modsports, so it could be a left over from then, unrestored and slightly modded.
    Just a guess.

    I remember you asking about the engine ages ago JC.
    Great to see it works out and you're on the case!

    Nice, I haven't seen an Escort Cossie for a while.

    The Windscreen surround looks a hell of a lot better JC.
    The molded in wipers are dreadful.

    Beautiful result on what is a rather basic kit JC.
    You did a bit of work on the Windscreen surround too I see.

    Glad they arrived safely Pete,  you're a true old school Gentleman to deal with, it was a pleasure.

    They had four wheel discs for sure, I'm pretty sure they were grooved too, they were running on small rims back then, so small brakes and brake fade otherwise.

    Thanks for the video Jonathan, I'd only seen it over a bad Skype link so far.

    I was glad to see the square headlights too, you need them for the Alan Mann racer.,nice red and gold paint job and you're done. But I did see a review (that I can't find again..) saying that it looks difficult to lower it down to Tarmac spec.
     
    It's an expensive kit to cut up though.

    Got any Hot Rod bits and pieces for trade?
    I have the decals still sealed with window masks.
    Give me a PM if you have anything.
