Topic: Ford Escort GT, w/ Turbo & suspension. 499 - south east PA

Ford Escort GT.
Built motor with less than 10k miles, forged internals, cam ect.
progressive spring rate coil overs. rebuilt trans and performance clutch/flywheel and new axles. mostly solid body. have title & several sets of wheels with dry rotted tires.

My wife built this car a decade ago with some gem parts that we imported. some of it, like the cooling system & electrical was whatever could be found to make it work.

We autocrosses and drag raced it for several years before it was parked 5 years ago while we moved around chasing jobs.


The engine has perfect compression and under the valve cover it looks exactly like it did when it was built just a few miles ago... it should be solid as a rock. never ever had a single mechanical issue.. other than snapped axles..

Needs to be gutted and the wiring & cooling system redone at minimum. its rough from sitting, breaks bearings ect are old.

I was keeping it whit the hope of building my own Lemons car, but friends keep flaking out and I really just don't have the time to build it myself.

Located in Honey Brook pa.

499$ or free if your local and you are willing to let me on the team.

Why don't you just join my team?  We have an 87 mustang, 88 T bird, 72 Pinto and 67 Galaxie.  And a Miata.  And a 71 Fury Custom Suburban.  And some more stuff.

Cars are up in Fleetwood.  Reasonably priced weekends.

Send me a message through the forum.

Still available apparantly. it's the 1981–1990 generation., not the one with Mazda BP engine.

So you've thought about building your own team and you're located in eastern PA.  And you have a thing for Escorts.

I think we should talk.  I'm a one man operation, after having relocated from Illinois to Pennsylvania. (Grew up in the Harrisburg area.)

I've been campaigning a 1982 Ford EXP since 2013.  We typically finish right in the middle of the standings with one of the slowest "fast laps" in the field.  Stock 1.6 L non-HO through a 4-speed manual makes it just about the worst Escort powertrain you could choose.

But the car is solid and handles reasonably well.

Send a message if you'd like to pair up.  I'm in Coopersburg.
