Mk5 Carousel

Recommended Posts

Been my daily for nearly 2 years now. Bought off ebay with 58,000 miles, no history but seems genuine. Only defects were rust bubble by the aerial and laquer on the roof is dying.

This is pretty much as bought .(apart from the springs became shorter).

4 spokes got polished , got a grant wheel , clear indicators and the badges off the bootlid.

Clutch started dying about now , while doing that a 5 speed went in as well. Then a brand new twin choke as the VV was playing up a bit.

Sold the 4 spokes , planning to put the superlights of the mk2 on it.

did not fit without rubbing , and did not want to mess with mint arches. So mk6 Escort wheels.

That's a really nice mk5 you have there,mate. Like the badgeless grill/alloys/ colour combo- all fits together very nicely. Will you be at the yat next year with this beauty? Good luck with the paint job.
