My friend believes that this car was Wayne Jones old sss, I'm sure you remember him from circuit racing Dave. When he was buying his 2 door wagon off him many years ago he tried to but it but the 5k seems to steep compared to the $750 wagon.

Very reasonable, 30k+ nzd here I'd estimate. It actually came from my little home town with a population of 30,000!

zigmondo - you might be right regarding the axles. I might have to check on the spare 411 diff i have here.

I'm running a h165 from a 411 bluebird with an alloy head. It's 25mm narrower over all - 12.5mm per side and allowed me to run a 8j wheel on a coupe. They run the same spline as the later ute h165B but the axle tubes and axle diameter is the same as h145 (tiney). I mix matched some bearings, so I could run larger ute axles and turned 6 or 8mm off the end of the axle (because its to long in the housing) and releaved the end of the spline so it could slip in a smidge further to all work. Got pics if anyone is interested

They run both 13" and 15" wheels on escorts.
Here is NZ Hayden Paddon won a national rally outright in a BDA escort only 4 years ago...

Here is a downport head that I have had for a few years and have just passed it onto a friend rebuilding a 1200 coupe race car. A friend of mine, Robbie who is on here flow benched it for me when I purchased it - attached for reference

I remember seeing that photo of the downported head myself and it is probably saved on on old computer. I think it was posted by Ernie "bige" who owns ATE race engines.

Would a shrink fit even be acceptable?
