1973 MK1 Ford Escort 1300 XL

“For sale we have my 1973 MK1 Ford Escort 1300XL. 3 former keeps from new with only 69k miles on the clock. A great runner, a very rare solid car.

First registered on 1st August 1973. The earliest history I personally have was that the car was purchased from Hartford Motors (Banbury) in October 1974 by a Mr John Perry. The car was kept in the same ownership until 2015 when it was purchased by his neighbour. I acquired the vehicle August 2017.
