Most factory race cars are eventually desireable for vintage racing. We aren’t so sure about this one. The two-seat EXP ended up weighing a good bit more than the standard four-seat Escort somehow, meaning the platform wasn’t particularly ideal for motorsports. We’d guess this car would have been built for the GT4 or GT5 class when new, but the photos, both current and period, leave much to be desired.
The anemic CVH (stands for Considerable Vibration and Harshness) engine should, with a rebuild, perform much better than new, with the big dual Webers and long-tube header. The cage looks rather stout, too. This will be a massive project to get running, let alone on track, but more power to the masochist who pulls the trigger.
It’s on eBay in Washington with reserve not yet met.
