When is a barn find not really a barn find? When it's in a humble little garage. But who cares when the car in question is so fascinating.
Back in 2010 Jonny Smith discovered a totally preserved Mk1 Ford Escort 1300XL with less than 1000 miles on the clock. This is the footage of him dragging it out into the sunshine for the first time in decades, edited in a video to celebrate 50 years of the Escort (1968-2018).
This is possibly the most original survivor mk1 Escort in existence.
