I remember the chap in the unit next to the bodyshop i worked in had a Mk 3 Escort van.It was a Mint B reg which was repainted in Rosso Red, had 7 Spoke RS Allys, Spot lights and full XR3i Interior, Suspension and Engine.It really looked good and i always had my eye on it, Even drove it once and it was lovely, Was a well looked after tidy van.He use to A frame cars about with it had done over 150k with the XR3i engine fitted he told me.Sadly when i last saw it about 4 years ago it was sitting buried under a pile of junk in his yard looking sorry for it's self. :cry:

Corr what is this, talk about tempting! Metallic blue R20, metallic blue 132, if I had £1001.32 I'd have those 2 right now! 8) Fiat & Renault my 2 favourite marques & those two are reet prime examples of what I'm about right there! :D

Oh dear. I've rather fallen for that 132. And with the Dolomite gone there's a RWD-manual-saloon-shaped hole in the fleet. Oh dear.

Yeah I knew the cars were (cos I have got one and even looked under the bonnet! :lol: ) but couldn't see a gearbox on that van. I also know of people who have done RWD conversions to the Mk3.

This sounds pretty cheap to me, 7 months MOT, 78k and looks tidy enough for £300 or best offer.
