Thus an Escort of some description.

Nice guess cookie,

The first three pictures are of what was the floorpan of a Ford sierra 4 x 4.

I drilled out the spot-welds across the back just in front of the rear seat, shortened it by 7 inches, then welded it back together.

The forth and fifth pictures is where I married a mk1 escort she'll to it, you can see the front drive shafts in the forth picture if you look closely.

Fifth picture shows a cosworth 2 ltr turbo lump. 350 break four wheel drive mk 1 escort.

Nice work man.....

I was going to say Sierra but the drive shafts confused me as (if I remember) a Sierra is only a rear wheel drive ,but I thought the Mk1V escort has a transverse engine (others being north South.).
Anyway yah got some balls and skill to do that. I don't touch bodywork ,But mechanical .....anyday.... Anyway it does show the old pensioner here hasn't lost its marble's

Philuk encourage me to Post this...🙃😱 (Risking my better judgement)...

This was my daily driver ,a Lotus Twin cam Escort MkI in Melbourne Australia 1973 ish.....Stood in our workshop (A tuning shop where I worked) covered in dust. Ex Bill Brown Australian race car .I put tyre's and exhaust on it and and finally got it through registration...

Sorry for me being in the photo......😱

The quality of the photo is not Good and unfortunately doesn't show the full extent of the vehicle, but it's 50 years old and I had to photograph it again from an album.... According to @philukI'd need a mortgage to buy it Now.
