1968 EX-WORKS FORD ESCORT TWIN CAM ‘BEV 782G’
'BEV 782G' was prepared at the Boreham Ford Works Department in 1968 for the 1969 Monte Carlo Rally, in which factory team driver Jean-Francois Piot had Jean Todt reading the notes. The French crew finished 4th overall, the car being the top finishing Ford that year.
The Ford Team's next event was in nearby San Remo, where 'BEV' was driven by Hannu Mikkola, while for the Circuit of Ireland, the car was entrusted to Roger Clark, who, with his trusty navigator Jim Porter, won the classic tarmac rally overall. Swedish pairing Ove Anderson and Gunnar Palm were equally successful in the car, winning the Welsh International.
Later that season, 'BEV' was issued to works team drivers Roger Clark for the Scottish and to Mikkola for the RAC, the car's 6th International, after which, in 1970, it was sold by Ford to the private sector.
Today it is beautifully restored and ready to enjoy on the road.
