Jim’s 1975 Mark 1 Ford Escort

Jan 11, 2018 | Customer Projects

Ford Winter White, Process Blue, and Azure Blue. These were the main colors that were used in doing up Jim Campbells’ 1975 Mark 1 Ford Escort. It was painted in Protec Basecoat with an Extra Flow Clear over the top. The vehicle was completed 2 years ago (2016) and is now used as a personal leisure car. Although, it does make occasional appearances at various shows.

Jim and his team at John Newell Smash Repairs spent 18 months restoring the vehicle. This was mainly because of the previous butchered repair work. Luckily, the bare shell was not in bad shape. The one tip Jim would give is to “Always be passionate to see the job through”.

Jim’s Escort was featured in our 2018 Auto West Calendar.
