I like it Mike!!!!! Look at the wheels, the decals and front headlight and rear light, it's very details finished almost next to the real thing for the classic rally car!
This is certainly worth collection!

Love Ford Escorts, especially the MK1 & 2.
My uncle had's a white Mk1. It's a car my cousin and I learned to drive. There were MK2 RS though the in red, with flared fenders and different nose were I grew up… those are extra nice then!
This example is great!
