    Default My retro fiesta mk1 rally car

    I bought this spur of the moment and have just got it home. Its a 1980 1.3 fiesta ex rally car. Its got 6 point cage, omp seat, sabelt harness, polybush mounts, bilstien dampers, xr2 drilled and grooved disks, fuel tank guard, sump guard. The shell is pretty solid and was resprayed about 18 months ago its a hardly concours but it'll have had a hard life.

    I'm currently trying to reasearch engines as i fancy something quicker in there but i have no idea what route to take and what i want to use it for.

    Here are a few pics











    I'm hoping to get it all taxed, mot'd and insured next week so i can finally drive it. I can't wait its older than me lol

    Same mate, mk3/4 Escort RS lump - 1.6 turbo.

    Or even a 2.0 RS2000 lump would be pretty interesting in that !

    Looks awesome!
