I googled 1959 Ford Escort and looked at the images they have. Does yours look like this? [i]see image below[/i]

You could try contacting some car clubs that focus on British models to see if they are interested or know what the going price is.

Where are you located and what do you want for your escort. If you want to see what it can look like, go to this link http:www.jalopyjpurnal.com/forum/showthread.php?p=3334700 and scroll down. This car has the 215 Buick V-8. I had one of these cars (stock in high school -1972) and wanted to put a small block in it, but not enough smarts. I recently found one in Oklahaoma, purchased it, and am in the slow process of a small block transplant. Just keep in mind that with an 86" wheelbase and a 48" track, it will be a wild ride. Anyway to answer your questions, there is a company in Dallas Tx. www.kipmotor.com that are the experts in these kinds of cars. http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/showthread.php?p=3334700. feel free to e/m with any questions to [email protected]

Memories. Bought one of these out of a farmer's field in mid 60s. Got me through a few winters at Michigan State University. Sturdy little contraption and great on mpg. Use to drive it back and forth between East Lansing and NYC in the winter. Sometimes had to follow large vehicles and stay in their tire tracks to get through the snow. Not much for heating and defrosting, but perfect for a poor college kid.
