Here's another rare beast we used to have. My dad bought it in about 1983/4 maybe, we knew of the mk2 and 3 savage but had never heard of a mk1. We had it a while a took it to fast ford rally at billing, it attracted a lot of attension and eventually found out it was one of only 6 built. As far as we know because of the time and cost of the body mods as well as interior modifications jeff uren was not allowed to build any more, this is why the mk2 and 3 look standard compared to this. The body was i think a lotus it had alloy doors and i think bonnet and boot, such a long time ago can't be 100% about the latter. The front and rear spoilers were fiberglass but the arches were steel. The suspension was very low and uprated, the handling was incredible, although very heavy on the steering at low speeds. Very quick to it would loose traction if you give it bootfull in 3rd. The savage badge on the bonnet was pressed out in the same style as the original cortina one. We tried hard to confirm the back ground on this car with no luck. Was hoping that to find out more about. Maybe jeff uren himself uses this site. We had the savage about 4 years, it stayed local for another couple of years, then vanished. Has anyone seen it ? I will try and dig out some more pictures.
