1973 MK1 Escort Barn Find 2 Door



1973  1.1 Ford Escort  40.000 miles


Purchased by Mr John T Neville from Warrington before passing into the ownership of his son Mr John D Neville upon his death in 1983.

Unfortunately, soon after taking ownership Mr Neville Jnr found himself out of work and with the usual living bills and then Two cars to take care of, decided it was best to park one in the garage.

Already having his own car when the Escort came along he decided it would be easier to leave this one in the garage….. just for a month or two…. but there it remained for almost 33 years!!

We handled the re-homing of this car back in 2017 to the present owner / vendor and due to unforeseen circumstances the car is now back on the market. 

So this low mileage 2 Door Escort will be offered for sale at our June Classic Car Auction.

Offers above £5000 will be submitted to the vendor.

On site now for viewing.

We are open 7 days a week here at Thornton Le Dale for pre-sale viewing, although a quick phone call prior to travelling is advised.

Don't forget. We personally collect FREE of charge around 90% of all our auction vehicles.

So, if you have a vehicle which you would like us to re-home.... just make the call. 01751 474455

Thank you.
