Amazing. What the hell is that worth? The parts alone must be worth as much as most well restored Escorts.

I hope the lady that has inherited it keeps it and it stays a much loved family heirloom.

Great find :applaud:
Really glad it was kept covered as I'm sure that helped preserve the paintwork. That spare tyre was still immaculate :o

Wowee!
Wouldn't it be great to discover something that wonderful lurking in a garage/barn?

Yeah amazing. I couldn't help but think I bet that dust will scratch hell out of that paint the way he removing those blankets. I know of a guy that has cars unregistered, he had a few Fords including a Capri that is if he is still alive, I'm talking 15 years ago. He'd buy them put them in a barn on a farm and put plastic covers over them. He is very private but managed to get a peak.
