Hi,

I'm trying to research a car the was converted / developed by Crayford for the ford motor company.

Two cars were converted for comparison tests with the twin cam lotus engined escort. Both car's were fitted with the essex v6, from the Zephyr/Zodiac. One car was fitted with carb's, the other fitted with fuel injection.

Does anyone have any further information on these cars? i.e. the history, etc..

Any help you would be able to give me would be greatly appreciated, as I have hit a dead end on this subject.

Greg.
