Hi, I have a 1979 MkII Escort Sport 1600, assembled here in New Zealand, and I am trying to source 5 metres of fabric to replace the top and sides of the seats. I want to keep it original; it is the very stripey deckchair look that is very 70s. Does anyone in the club know whether this material can still be sourced and if so where? Or is there a valid alternative? One of my sons is in the UK for another month and would be bringing it home with them in September. Thanks for your help.

Just a short note to say my Mk II 1300L estate, sometimes referred to as the Batford Escort now resides in Kent. It is now undergoing a slow restoration. Sadly I had to conclude that with increasing health and financial problems a restoration in my tenureship would never happen. Keep safe, keep well!

I have recently bought a 1972 Ford Escort 1300GT. I would like to renew the square headlamp lenses. Am I looking at the impossible to replace these ? Just needing someone with knowledge to tell me please and I will place the thought out of my mind, if they are extremely rare ? Also I need to buy a matching chrome door mirror for the passenger door as I like to drive safely,using mirrors. I bought 2 new ones on ebay,but had to send them back as despite the seller saying they would fit a Mk 1 Escort, the one on the passenger side would not. Any tips or ideas please ? Comments gratefully received of help. Thank you.

I am currently in the process of booking shows for this year. So far we have Elveden Classic & Vintage Car show, Sunday, 2nd June, Helmingham Festival of Classic and Sports Cars: 4th Aug (£10) Both shows are in Norfolk and ones we have attended previously. It would be good to have a few more attend so please let me know asap. Regarding the £10 please make cheque payable to 'Helmingham Hall Gardens', thank you. Geraldine

Good morning all, I am sorry to hear that you are disappointed with the Club. The reason why there has been no recent magazines is that members are reluctant to provide content. Without members contribution to the magazine, then no magazine. We are always encouraging members to send articles to the Editor. We are currently in the final stages of the current magazine which should be with you later this month/early next month. You can also find us on facebook.. Regards, Paula - Club Secretary

Couldn’t agree more. I rejoined the club last year after previously been a member back in the 80,s. Now Having returned to Escort ownership I wanted to join a owners club. I’ve had 1 magazine since not bi monthly as I was led to believe.looking over the website this also seems to be out of date. Definitely won’t be renewing my membership next year just to receive a sticker and magazine and view a out of dated and out of touch website.

Im not sure what is going on regarding the magazine these days but we need to offer something to paying members especially when internet based clubs are free!! Ive been a member for 30 years this year but wondering if its really worth rejoining next year. No National Day, No Magazine, cant blame Brexit!! Not even sure people are looking at this forum anymore to be honest.

Hello there.

Just to ask... I'm having a paint code sticker made up for the inside of the boot of my 1979 Mk2 escort 1.6 sport and there is a choice of 3 paint manufacturers ie FA BOLLIG&KEMPER / FA DR KURT HERBERTS OR FA SIKKENS..

The colour is cosmos blue metallic and the paint code I think is XCS 1272 but it could have the letter B on the end. ? So if possible can anyone tell me what manufacture and code it should be ?

Many thanks
