1998 Ford Escort GTi five-door
As the Escort reached the end of its production life, numerous models appeared, including the little-seen GTi. Clwyd’s Berkshire-registered example had service history, two former owners and two keys, and it was in pretty tidy order inside and out. For anyone wanting a ‘hot hatch’ GTi but not wanting to tread the hackneyed Golf or 205 route, this warm five-door was just thing, and it was hardly dear. The low mileage on this 1998 car – 65,949 – also means that this certainly can be regarded as a great buy, or maybe more accurately one that got away from the rest of us!
