I own a 1988 Mark 4 White Escort Cabriolet Xr3i. Is it worth restoring (financially) or is it more likely a "part's car"? (breaking for spares) ??
The vinyl roof needs replacing.
The engine leaks oil - probably from the a manifold on the engine block.
The body needs work, and specifically one, possibly two sills need replacing?
Aside from that it drives just fine ;-)
I live in Chelmsford, Essex. If anyone were interested in taking on a restoration project like this, then please get in touch.
I attach some pictures showing its current condition.
I'd appreciate an opinion. Obviously, before I go ahead and invest time and energy to any restoration, I need to be sure I won't be pouring resources into something that would produce a fair return on my investment. (even if just to break even).
