1972 FORD ES­CORT RS1600

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

The ap­pear­ance of any early sport­ing Es­cort leaves the door open to the ‘Fast Ford phe­nom­e­non’ de­bate, and while much of that was a short-lived blip last sum­mer, there re­mains a hard­core of ded­i­cated blue oval fans keep­ing the leg­end alive. SWVA’s RS1600 was a pleaser that had been prop­erly re­stored in the early 1980s but un­used since 1985. Still in very good con­di­tion from body to in­te­rior and boot to en­gine bay, the high level of in­ter­est was in no way sur­pris­ing, de­spite the ex­pense of a thor­ough check-over and ser­vic­ing be­fore go­ing back on the road.
