Default escort cosworth bodyshells - motorsport?????

Thinking about reshelling an escort cossie and did not know what the difference between a full shell from fords and a motorsport shell was. Is it bad to use a motorsport shell? will it make the final car obviously a reshell or fresh build? I dont understand and was hoping someone could shed a little light on the subject for me and hopefully point me in the right direction to getting a shell.

cheers

Azrael - I cant find a shell either mate!!!

Glenn5 - Is that the only difference? Someone said there was a difference with the rear window openers. Do all normal cossies have sunroofs?

I dont have one. I was thinking about buying one that needs reshelling and doing all the work to it. I have one to buy it is just the shell. I really want an escort cossie.....I have always wanted one....I currently drive an 04 reg impreza sti....great car but I have had cossies before and want to go back to cossies. I was going to buy a straight one but I like the idea of buying this reshelled one and rebuilding it exactly to the spec that I want. Would be easier to just buy one but I really fancy building it with the exact suspension, colour, trim etc to my liking and all the standard ones are silly money

that is the road I am going to go down now. I was hoping to find one privately and keep it reasonably priced but my next step is going to be going down the route of checking the rs traders.....fingers crossed!!!
