SoCal 1300GT

This mkI Escort 1300GT was spotted by back in August. As you can see, the external appearance remains true to its original GT aesthetic - rectangular headlights, lightly flared arches, thick sidestripes - but the engine offers rather more poke than the old 1300 Kent unit. In fact, we have what appears to be a Duratec on Jenvey throttle bodies, with a serpentine exhaust manifold. This is how SuckSqueezeBangBlow likes Escorts: clean and classic, with some fire in the belly. It's a little slice of South London, transplanted into Southern California.
