Issue 177 (March 2021)
Gracing the cover of the March 2021 issue of Irish Vintage Scene is a pair of classic Escorts that are sure to be of great interest to the many Ford fans out there. Both are rare, Irish-built examples, one being an extremely early Mk1 1300 GT from the end of 1967 and the other a very original Mk2 1300 Sport from 1979. Both are highly cherished by their Co. Wicklow-based owners. Our second car feature is another rare red beauty, this time a 1974 Alfa Romeo Montreal that has been restored at home by its owner, and we also drop in on one West Cork owner to check out his collection, comprising of an Irish-assembled Morris Minor, LHD VW Beetle, 1937 Ford Model Y Fordor and Massey Ferguson 135.
Speaking of tractors, our monthly tractor feature tells us about one Ballymena farmer’s restoration of both a 1960 Fordson Dextra and the early, 1947 Ferguson TE-20 that his father bought in the 1960s. Our motorcycle slot is on a 1961 Triumph 3TA that’s been rebuilt in memory of Bob Dylan’s famous T-100, and our commercial feature looks at an unusual 1979 Scammell Routeman eight-wheel tipper that’s been rebuilt to perfection.
All of the usual favourites are in there too, so don’t miss out – buy your March 2021 issue of Irish Vintage Scene right here, with FREE POSTAGE on the island of Ireland!
