|This stunning road legal flying machine started life as an exported Escort Pop Plus which means that it was the same shell as an RS on the production line in 1977 and therefore had the same RS strengthening panels .|
This feature always appeals when building a Motorsport Special and this one has been built to a very high standard over a period of 4 years being completed in late 2014 at a cost of over £30000.
It would be ideal as a hill climb car or just an extreme road car.
