    Panko's Mk1 Escort (Round 2)

    MK1 van was the first I bought this time around. Not what I was looking for, but I wanted to get into the market.

    Yes, I'm glad I bought a few when I could

    Not a fan of the lower plate position for some reason. Looking great

    In the big scheme of things, pulling the dash to use the XG loom and cluster isn't that big a job

    At least you have something to work with.

    You are fortunate to have a decent shed and parking. Many people in greater Melbourne would be very envious

    Any progress now that you are out of lockdown?

    A Falcon/Commodore/Nissan BW75/78 is probably overkill for most street Escorts. That said, something like a turbo YB Cosworth is definitely going to need a strong rear axle.

    I broke one with a stock 1300 many years ago (I was a teenager)

    Correct. Smaller, weaker, basically garbage

    I just grabbed my Escort parts book, dated 3/72. It seems that all MK1 until August 1971 had English axles, then August onwards, most had Borg Warner. Of the 3 MK1 2 doors that I have currently, 2 are 1970 build with English axles, and 1 1974 with a BW. The 1972 car I had years ago had a BW, but I replaced it with a 4.125 ratio English out of a MK1 van. The 1975 MK1 van I have now has an English axle, but that now seems likely it has been replaced at some time.
