  1. This is my Mk2 Escort Estate project which I started about two years ago. I wanted to share what I've been doing up to this point and once I'm caught up, keep you guys updated on my progress. Build Thread:
  2. Back in 2015 dad and I took a road trip to Gisborne to pick up a Mk2 escort estate after buying it for $450. Put it on a trailer behind the Accord and made a 12 hour road trip home. This is the next morning after giving it a decent water blast and getting rid of the cockroach infestation that was living in it. The car came with no motor, a gearbox hanging from the rear engine mount, a fart cannon exhaust, little to no interior bar the headlining and dash cluster, steering wheel, column and pedal boxes, full glass, escort steelies all round, plus some other crap in boxes in the tray area.

  3. Hey everyone, Better jump on the van wagon band and post a build thread about my mk2 van. Purchased from Alexandra, taken off the road to tidy it up and fix the rust. That was a couple of years ago, so ill play catch up with my posts to get it to the current state. Pretty standard apart from the 1600 and us800 mags. Mags and massive exhaust tip were the first to go This is how it sat before being taken of the road Plan is keep the 1600, panel up the windows and a few other bits

  6. After selling my Mk1 2 door, I brought a 1995 WRX Sti type Ra because who doesn't lust after rally spec cars. Hell of blast, but I want to keep the km's down as I see it appreciating in the future. I needed something that milage or a few shopping market dents wouldn't worry me too much. Found this on fb down in the south island.
  7. Been following this forum for a while and been meaning to start a build thread so here go's. I have had it close to a year all ready and have not been keeping to good a photo history unfortunately. A year or so ago I started a new job that came with a company vehicle which allowed me to sell my late model Navara freeing up some cash. About the same time we bought a lifestyle property outside of Hamilton that came with a converted pig shed at 130 square meters. So I thought I should get my self some sort of toy. I started looking for something american but decided that seems though
  8. Hi all I'm about to start on a 2l pinto conversation on my mk2 escort panel van and am wondering if anyone has any helpful tips or pointers. It was originally an auto so the tunnel is big enough. I have purchased everything from radiator to diff but know nothing about these engines so any info would be great. Cheers Matt
  9. Hey I’m new to oldschool but want to share the entire build of my 1980 mk2 ford escort estate and thought this would be the best place to do so. We picked her up a couple of years ago so that I could have a project throughout my high school years.
  10. OK team, it all starts this weekend and I thought I would kick off my first build thread post. I got my first car when I was 16. A poo brown 1979 Mk2 1300 4 door. This was alright for a while but it wasn't long before I managed to find a red 1980 Mk2 1600 Sport. This was purchased for $1000 and had a wof and everything. I put in my race motor and raced round the streets of Wellington. I think it was the loudest car around. Unfortunately rust was ripe in the Sport and I figured, being an apprentice mechanic, I would strip it down, fix the rust and rebuild. Well stripping it down I found i
