Update! While I was in the hospital with pneumonia, my buddy at work was able to put all new rear hard and soft brake lines in. Next when I 'm feeling better, we are going to install my new crossed drilled rotors front and back, and also install the new front axles and lower ball joints.
Still haven't taken possession of the new wheels yet, but hope to have them by this spring.

Well today I decided to get out and bout and get the two cars out for an updated picture.
Tired of sitting around the house and had nothing better to do and my lungs are feeling better.




yes I know the driver side rear tire is flat.

A new fresh paint on both and some bodywork, they will look real nice with my 17's on both.

Well, today I had some free time to clean up my EGT.
So I decided to see whats under that 2 yrs of crud and grime.
I know it still needs some bodywork and a paint job, but I was pleasently
surprised.





As you can see I have atleast a good base to start with.
Also took a picture of the wheels I waiting for. Once we get the title for the wreck the wheels are mine! Woot!

Well since my last post I've been real busy at work and haven't really done anything to the car until this past week.
The GT now has new front axles, new lower ball joints, new cross drilled rotors, new calipers, all new brake lines, and new shifter linkage installed. Also got the title to the wreck and have my new wheels.

Yes they are rotors I got about three years ago on eBay. A1 Power Rotors. I think that's the name of them.
I haven't seen any on eBay since.

Small update. I've been driving the car around the area and down to Lancaster trying to break the engine in. I've put about 300 mi. so far. I've been told to put atleast a 1000 mi on it before it's broken in! Why oh why so many miles.
I've come across one issue with it since I've been driving it, something is drainig the battery if car sits more than 24 hrs. So I've been undoing the battery every night. What could possibly be the cause for this?
I've set up an appointment for a new exhaust to be welded in 2 weeks, and I've also been collecting stuff to redo the interior, and have an appointment made for my new rims to get new tires installed.
Will post pics of the progress as the next couple weeks go by.

Rust issues almost completed.
Bad ground for starter, no battery drain, just bad ground.
More to come.

It's been many years since my rebuild of the Red EGT and I do have to say that she has gone through many changes. I still have her and she is still running like a champ. The body needs refreshed and a few other things. I figured I would revive this thread and show you what has changed and what has stayed the same.

Welcome to 2022 and the silver Escort Pony build went all the way to an engine swap and full GT conversion. Drove for a few years and then sold the car, because I had bought a clean well maintained White EGT.
All three cars together.
