    Ford Cortina / Escort rear axle widths

    Can anyone help me with widths drumface to drumface on:
    Cortina 1
    Cortina 2
    Escort 1
    Escort 2
    Just musing for a future project.

    If you go onto retro Ford they do an upgrade kit for mk2 escorts and if you need track widths you could get in touch with them. Hope this helps.

    Looking at those meaurements I presume that is backplate mounting face to face rather than wheel mounting face to face ?
    Galations 6:7

    i’ve checked again and yes its quoted as axle case flange to flange,
    come to think of it those sizes do seam a bit short.

    Another option is 107E prefect (the 100e with OHV engine),but i cant remember if it was different width to those already mentioned ,i vaguely remember it was the same as 307E Anglia van or even just in-between 105E and 307E width, anybody know ?

    107E axle hard to find now i guess though.

    Sure you will find the 107E had the same axle as the 105E
