The Alfa sat as an unfinished project for decades after the owner removed the entire bottom six inches of the car which had rotted. This year it was handed over to SD Developments in Todmorden to rescue. Having stood in a garage for 20 years with a large pile of spare parts for company, it is being upgraded to a road-rally car.
The Escort started life as a 1.3 Popular, but has a bright future as a Group 4 historic rally car. The current owner bought it as a daily driver for a couple of years - that was until the engine backfired and set the car on fire. Unusable, it was taken off the road and handed over to SDD for a Group 4 project with a BDG engine.
