From: France Car: Mk1 Mex­ico “I found this Mex­ico in the north of Italy two years ago with an in­ter­est­ing his­tory, hav­ing com­peted in the Ital­ian Mex­ico Cup and some ral­lies in the ’70s.The car had two own­ers since new and there was around 20 years of dust on it when we bought it! The body had ab­so­lutely no rust, but the life of this car wasn’t re­ally quiet

dur­ing his rac­ing pe­riod, and we choose to keep the car’s outward ap­pear­ance as we found it with­out restor­ing it.

“With just 18,000 km on the clock, this car still has many pe­riod op­tions — roll cage, card light reader, Cibié iodes, Arm­strong ad­justable coil-overs and Corte & Cosso rear dampers!

“The pe­riod stick­ers are still on the Mex­ico, so we take care when we wash the car! We also own an RS1600 and a Group 2 RS2000. It’s a fine garage!”

“AS WELL AS THE MEX­ICO WE ALSO OWN AN RS1600 AND A GROUP 2 RS2000. IT’S A FINE GARAGE!”

Es­cort com­peted in the Mex­ico Cup in the ’70s and is largely un­re­stored.
