Sundowner Livery | Van | 4 Speed Manual | 2.0 litre 4 Cylinder | 100,517 kms | SOLD
The Mk II Escort Van wasn’t just an Australian delivered model, it was actually assembled at the Ford Australia’s Homebush Plant in Sydney. Unlike the European models these Escorts were built to fit the larger 2 Litre Pinto engine and to revamp their leisure range they introduced the Sundowner van which positioned itself to the youth-orientated lifestyle.
The completely restored van is powered by a peppy 2.0-litre four cylinder Pinto engine, which drives the rear wheels via a four-speed manual transmission. To complete the look It sits on 15inch alloy wheels that are tucked underneath the GT styled front fenders.
The interior presents as new with the dash, door cards and roof lining in excellent condition and also benefits from a few additions such as sports bucket seats and Momo sports steering wheel.

This Ford Escort is a fantastic tribute to the original Sundowner that brilliantly captures the essence of the Panel Van craze of the ‘70s.

It would make for a fun weekend cruiser, or utilised as it once was to travel the country.
