1973 Ford Escort GT 1.3 from South Africa
Priceless Street-level Bomb with class
Gearbox developed a leak and the seals had to be replaced which cost R 1500 in parts and labour.
Accelerator cable snapped and needed to be replaced, could not find a replacement that easily.
Master Brake Cylinder developed a leak, problem solved by an expert mechanic for R 150.00.
This is a fantastic car to own, it is very cheap in terms of spares, what you have to understand is that old cars need and should be given constant attention, so that everything runs smoothly.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
