Hi Guys/Girls

With great regret and joy I'm starting this tread.

She started as a 1.6i Escort Sport
I'll list the things as I changed them on her.

It made 91 WKW here in PTA

There is a few things that I know I missed. I have the receipts for almost everything plus photos of almost everything(Spend in total over R100k,cars price not incl :smt101 )

The car was my daily driver until 2013 Dec when I bought a focus diesel. I only drive her on weekends now, and special occasions.
She is very reliable, and drives really nice for a car with such stiff suspension.

With the car comes all my spares that I have which includes:(to name a few)
-1.6 Zetec engine(complete), still running perfectly when I took it out
-2.0 Plastic manifold with injectors
-Extra throttle body, and MAFs
-Old drums and calipers
-Spare ST170 rear caliper
-Wildcat branch and free flow
-Old clusters
-Original springs and shocks
-old window regulators, coil pack
-Mondeo alternators
-Spare sump
-All sort of switches and bits
-RS turbo manifold + turbo(needs bearings and recon)
Theres alot more but I can't remeber everything ../../extensions/custom_smilies_2/img1/smile

Whats wrong with her:
Two things, On the rear bumper there is a small patch that the clear coat failed and the bonnet has dent on the lip.
The 1.6 is still on the papers, but I have the proof of purchase of the 2.0 from engine den.

Asking R65 000 for everything.
