Topic: 1991 Ford Escort LX, competitive LeMon, $1000 Chicago

The particulars:

1991 Ford Escort LX 5 door 
1999 Escort ZX 2 2.0L Zetec engine
1991 Escort GT Rear end with disc brakes
1999 Escort ZX 2 Front end with disc brakes
Escort ZX 2 S/R springs (eibach) and struts
3 949 Aluminum racing wheels
3 off brand racing wheels
A bin of parts

Full disclosure: It’s been pushed in to a wall and still needs repairs.  The repairs it’ll need include an inch or two of subframe straightening, new control arm, tie rod end, spindle and may be a few other small bits and pieces.  I have the control arm and spindle in the spares bin.  It’s a weekend’s worth of work with the right tools and an extra set of hands.  The cage and all other structural parts have been examined and are fine.

This has been a terrific, reliable and competitive car for the 20 + races I’ve owned it.  It’s fast enough to battle anything in B, it has great brakes and handling is very predictable.  It’s competed in and finished two 24-hour races.  It’s finished as high as 3rd in B and 12th overall.  It’s beaten a lot of the cars in every class in the Midwest and it’s always competitive. 

It’s a great car for a young team with a little willingness to fix the bent stuff and/or a team that doesn’t want to spend the $5000 + that’s necessary to build a new car. 

I’m selling it because I just bought another LeMon.

When I bought it, I promised that I’d return it to the Lemons community better than I found it and at the same absurdly low price I paid, so I’m selling it for $1000.  The cage alone is worth more than $1000!  PM me here for more details.

I'd hate to send this car to the crusher.  It deserves to continue racing!  Email me with the link on the left and lets talk.
