2 or 4 door ? Ive seen a few four doors floating around Udon, but i think the 2 door more appealing . Loved my company Mexico , Brilliant little car in its day , and just fun to drive .

Hi

Thx for your reply.

I prefer a 2 door but would consider a 4 door.

Any contacts would be great. I can pay a finders fee too.

Thx again

Get as many photos and as much info as you can before you travel . Many old cars here have been messed with , non standard parts fitted just to keep it on the road . The good thing is unless it comes from the coast or one of the islands the body should be solid . There are some fantastic old classics here , but even the Thais know what they are worth , and with the internet , parts can still be sourced . Good luck , interesting project .

The one that’s still available looks rotten!

From the few pics I’ve seen it needs a new bonnet & doors.

It’s also a non runner so it’ll need to be very very cheap.

The other is a four & I’ve not had pics yet.

Does anyone know a decent car mechanic & panel beater in Udon?

I’d like to try to get an idea of labour costs, bodywork, electrics, paint spraying etc.

Thx

The 2 doors are the money shot , with the mk1 being more collectable .
Labour is relatively cheap here , but you will struggle to get any prices without them seeing the car .
Im guessing you could get a full respray on an Escort done for around 15,000 to 20,000 baht if the body is straight and only needs finishing , primed , and painted , and its already been stripped . A shell on four wheels !
