Hi, Having had 3 new mk1's in the '70s between my Dad and myself, I wonder if you could tell me how many mk1 1300 Escort Sports were made and where they were built . I took delivery of my Sport back in 1974 WHM 761M in Daytona yellow. Extras I ordered were opening rear side windows, sports wing mirrors, cloth interior, radio and reversing lights. The opening side windows proved troublesome with the hinges and lock keep coming unstuck from the glass - we ended up fitting fixed glass. The car had 32 delivery miles on it when collected. I knew the day I px'd it in 1981 for a mk2 estate 1.3L in midnight blue PGN954V that I'd forever regret it, 94k miles later. So can you tell me how many were made? Also how many 1300E's were made please ? My Dad had a new purple velvet 1300E GYV 30N and a new sunset red 1300XL HGF 372K. The latter was rear ended when 3 months old on a Scottish holiday by a land rover and trailer, pushing us into 2 more cars in front. It was reshelled up there, and we had to travel up to Perth to collect it.

Many thanks, Dave.

Many thanks, Dave.

I am in the process of re-registering my 1973 Mk1 Mexico but need the DVLA form endorsed by an affiliated owners club. Can you advise who it is I should contact at SEOC to help in this matter?
Thank you.

Apologies if you e-mailed me about my Escort (below) and I have not replied. I was away for a few days and the e-mail server had a number transient issues so some got through, some got bounced and others got lost! Sadly a stupidly low offer got through! Autumn is starting so it's a good time to get a winter project...

Those of you who were members of the club in the early/mid noughties may recall my beige Mk II Escort estate in which I attended a number of National Days and monthly meets at the Brache, Luton. I also used to enter in in auto tests. It had the nickname of the Batford Escort as it was parked outside my late mother’s flat there for many years. Sadly because of ongoing health problems I have decided that restoring the bodywork and converting to an automatic is too much for me. So regrettably after nearly thirty years in the family. Please e-mail me if you are interested. Thank you…

I wonder if you could help me. I have tried the contact us link on this site but have not had a response. I have a Lotus/Caterham 7, the gear lever linkage has broken due to the failure of a plastic ball in in the mechanism, I have been told the linkage is non standard and it is from an Escort Sport. Do yo know where I could get a replacement part or do you have any other solution. I have some photos of the broken part and linkage which I could send if it helps.
