Not in my price range, but very tasty looking Escrot 1300L 4 door:

1 owner, 19,000 miles from new.

I feel this is an odd one, an Escort with low miles one owner etc etc that’s not worth any more than any other solid shell, because it’s a 4 door.  No one wants to collect 1100 drum braked 4 door escorts. A basic immaculate Avenger, Viva, Toledo,or ADo16 is far more desirable to collectors. Escorts are only worth silly money if they’re 2 doors, people only buy 4 doors and estates because they can’t afford a 2 door , if you’ve got £14,000 to play with to buy a base for your RS/ Fast and Furious lookalike you’d buy a 2 door and do a bit of welding ,originality has no meaning in the world of non -AVO , non -RS Fords

Someone will disprove this theory and show me a £25k 4 door 1300e or something.

Every time this pops up on eBay it makes me want it more.

I think when I finally go fully insane I'll sell everything, quit my job and buy something like this, and tour the B roads of the UK. 

£6,495.00 though, think I'll wait a bit longer before I go fully insane.

Yes agree, clearly someone else has gone insane before you.

This is amazing, not cheap but a one off opportunity for Japanese car fans.

My grandad had a saloon version of one of these as a company car for about a month in 1973/1974, before he was given a Consul L.

Despite being listed for £8k, I'd say it's cheap for a solid, running 260C with that plate included. The plate's got to be worth several bags as it is.

Not ebay but seems a bargain either way  on Facebook marketplace,  5.0!286222022_Screenshot_20210911-120225_SamsungInternet.thumb.jpg.252e1b358cee885bcbe0383a5fea2495.jpg

 

That reminds me there's a house by the Great North Way which seems to have a couple of these behemoths parked outside.... Must get a photo or two...

Yes lots of mot advisories..... but road legal to next June!

Well I just went today and took a look today. And drove away in it! Will put some details in my thread but it's all good. Very solid from what I can see and even has working aircon/ climate control. I'm also the second owner of the car!

Looks like a great buy! I can't remember the last time I saw a Marea, let alone a saloon. Fun fact: Debbie Harry had a similar ELX in the late nineties which inspired a Blondie hit.

Excellent news! I tried to view but was told someone else was first in the queue. Enjoy and please let me know when you get fed up with it and need to move it on! Great A/S car!

Sadly not as many listings up as earlier in the year but Manor Park Classics have everything up now for their 22nd Sept auction.

https://auctions.manorparkclassics.com/auction/details/3-the-autumn-2021-classic-car-auction/?au=5&g=1

I hope that Montego goes for below its reserve, I'd prefer those to stay cheap for a while longer

What a beauty these were. This one is also cheap, low miles and has a full MOT!

Bluebird that looks well looked after at a very fair price. 126 not included.

Very fairly priced Scirocco GT, again in excellent condition and a decent sounding seller.
