In August 2018, the BBC approached Russell and requested if they could make a short video on the silver car. Once they had shot the video, they shared it onto their facebook page and also on their website, which lead to more and more interest on the car. Below you will find the video, a short description, and the article link.
“Ford Escort made from silver and jewels to be sold for charity”
“A jeweller with a passion for cars is making a miniature replica of his beloved MK2 Ford Escort.
The platinum, silver and gold car comes complete with bejewelled brake lights and will take craftsman Russell Lord more than 1,000 hours to complete.
Once finished, Mr Lord, of Shenfield, Essex, will sell off the piece for charity.”
