New Escort Mk1 Shell Build Starts

The jigs for the new Escort mk1 bodyshells have now been done and assembly of the first mk1 bodyshell has started. Working with Magnum Car Panels, supplying all new manufactured panels for the build, we should see the first bodyshell completed next month.
We are just waiting for the front A pillar section and the roof gutter to complete the build assembly.
The plan is to build and offer these shells in various stages, including a base shell, type-49 and full race/rally spec with weld in cages, bubble arches, 5 linked etc.
We will also be building the Mk1 Escorts as complete cars either rally spec or fast road on new reg plates.
The first complete car will be built this year, we have yet to decide on the engine, could be Duratec, BDG or even Millington...
