This stunning 1975 Ford Escort Mk1 Mexico has just arrived in stock and is ready to view.
The Escort had conventional rear-wheel drive and a four-speed manual gearbox, or three-speed automatic transmission. The suspension consisted of MacPherson strut front suspension and a simple live axle mounted on leaf springs. The Escort was the first small Ford to use rack-and-pinion steering. The Mark I featured contemporary styling cues in tune with its time: a subtle Detroit-inspired “Coke bottle” waistline and the “dogbone” shaped front grille – arguably the car’s main stylistic feature. Similar Coke bottle styling featured in the larger Cortina Mark III (also built in West Germany as the Taunus) launched in 1970. (Source)
This has been very well looked after and has a modified 1.6 litre engine fitted with Stage 2 Tuning.
The car comes with invoices for work done and shows the car has been repainted in Ford Daytona Yellow.
