Blue 1.1 in LC Hughes scarp yard in Bicester. I think its an L or a Pop not sure as were no markings.

Good interior in the blue colour. Rusty as hell but all there bar wheels and engine loom.

if the wheels in the pics are on the cars that were designated them...
bottom row, on the left a mk1 fiesta Quartz, 1300S or finesse, on the right a xr2 :wall:

Image
looks like the 3rd one up on the far right is a mk1/mk2 aswell going off the sump, tiebar, chassis rail and floor pan shape

The one on the left could even be an early mk2.
My missus B reg 1.1 has the same wheels..

r.j.k in Erith kent have a mint mk2 in brown all complete .
also a red mk2 xr2 but not much is salvageable of this one that I could see.
I find they always have some old fords in there yard.
got a good mk3 escort cabbie for sale £800 no rot anywhere well worth saving .

I'd have guessed it was a Festival from the colour.
But it's had a respray. So probably not.
The Ford badge was in the wrong place too.

Probably had a high spec dash and having a 60/40 split seat it could have been an 'L' model perhaps.
Not that there's much of it left.

Jason.

Being a later model, it should have the electronic ignition.
So the dizzy and coil as well as the wiring to the dizzy and coil might be worth grabbing for someone wanting an upgrade over points.
