    And the 2 door mach 2 would split on the rear pillars due to body twist 4 doors had a stronger rear pillar


    Drove a escort with a leaking rad ...when I arrived at my desternation I could hear the water system banging around shouting I'm empty......drove it back home and it still lived after a refill.....no chance with modern watercooled engines. ...low water alarms....didn't need them...that thumping rumbling sound with steam venting out the grille meant stop when convenient....the smell of underseal made you high has a kite...that's why a lot were written off.


    In the 80’s I had a few early escorts, including mk 1 and Mk2 RS’s and Mexico’s, I could cry when I see the money they change hands for. Apart from the RS 1800, the one I had a soft spot for was a 1100 pop that was an ex panda car. Used it to go to the south of France an a fruit picking trip in 89 lol . It had stellar miles on the clock and never missed a beat, even when I did the 1000mile journey home in 2 days. I’d resprayed it black and fitted an Xsport wide body kit lol.

  • For safety reasons it really should be clamped down. In an accident it’s a fairly heavy missile to be shooting round. However here’s the official standing.

    Yeah basically, I’m planning on fully restoring Tif, so in long term and practical views a new arm is best

  • Although the arm seems solid, having seen how quickly 75 rear upper arms rot out, that was my thought to. Just ordered a replacement arm from MGFnTFbitz. Another reasoning was my mot tester loves to see new parts like that fitted, so may be a good call anyway. When I had Tif up on the 4poster, it did look like she’s had 4 new front subframe fitted within the last couple of years, so hopefully 🤔
