FORD Escort Mk I

Classic Car

Originally intended to be the new Anglia, the Escort name was adopted instead for the fresh small Ford after the formation of Ford of Europe in 1967. With less distinctive styling than the Anglia, it proved to be a huge hit, for its simplicity, neat appearance and good performance endeared it to millions. Even the basic 1098cc version proved surprisingly sporty, thanks to rack-and-pinion steering and effective MacPherson strut front suspension, while some of the higher-powered ‘specialist’ models were effectively rally machines for the road.
