If you’re a fan of 70s cop fiction, the Ford Escort MK1 will bring back some fond memories. It’s a car with a distinctive style and still looks great on the road today. If you managed to get hold of one of these vintage cars and it’s in need of some serious repairs, getting in touch with White’s Bodyworks should be your first step for a complete restoration.
The Ford Escort MK1
The first Mark 1 appeared around 1967 in the UK, replacing the much loved Anglia. The two door saloon became one of the most popular cars in the country between then and 1975 and was particularly noted for its cutting edge water temperature gauge and nifty cigar lighter – the height of in car tech at the time. It appealed to young buyers in the 70s, looked fairly sporty and came with a good fuel efficiency and reliable performance.
After over 40 years on the road, most Ford Escorts are going to need some serious care and attention at some point. This model was brought to us suffering several problems with the bodywork – there were a few dents to sort out, rust that had built over time and the whole car needed a respray.
