FORD Escort Mexico/RS2000

Classic Car

Ford’s victory in the tough and demanding 1970 World Cup Rally to Mexico gave them the perfect excuse to unleash another ‘hotted up’ Escort upon an unsuspecting public. Based on the RS1600, the Mexico forewent the specialist twin-cam engine of that car and opted for a simpler – and therefore more reliable – 1558cc Kent overhead valve engine instead. Although less powerful (at only 86bhp) than other fast Fords, it was still a sprightly machine and completely looked the part with lairy colour schemes featuring contrasting side stripes.
