Reluctantly I have had to put the gasser up for sale.

Genuine reason for sale as in the big bad grown up world of top trumps apparently house trumps cool old car.

Details as follows:

- 1956 Ford Escort Estate with correctly registered V5 and correct engine size/number
- Radiused rear arches and substantial repair work, body has been shot blasted and primed
- New heavy duty box section chassis with welded in half roll cage.
- Car has had substantial fabrication work and welding and all this was under taken by Pete Ayres of Lite Welding Ltd/ChopsnBobbers.com
- Car runs a nearly stock 302 HO V8 out of an 89 Mustang. The engine has had the EFI stripped off and a Holly Carb put in its place.
- From the same 89 mustang it also runs a T5 5 speed manual box and shortened 8.8" rear axle.
- Car has had a lot of time and effort spent on it to get it to where it is today, with not much needed to finish it off to a very high standard.
- I have a folder full of parts receipts and part numbers to make upgrades and replacements easy down the line.
- Car was featured in Custom Car the back end of last year
- Cars best run down the strip is currently a 13.2 at just over 100Mph
