Blue Oval Bar­gains

As the Es­cort Cos­worth turns 25, prices of some hot Fords have gone crazy, but there are more af­ford­able al­ter­na­tives

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Seven Brilliant Fast Fords To Buy Now -

Ford has con­quered race tracks the world over ever since it ush­ered in the To­tal Per­for­mance pro­gramme back in the early Six­ties. It has also van­quished all-com­ers in ral­ly­ing and ral­ly­cross, for that mat­ter. A happy by-prod­uct of this has been a raft of ho­molo­ga­tion spe­cials and other ‘ halo’ mod­els, ar­guably the most un­der­val­ued (for now) be­ing the mighty Es­cort RS Cos­worth, which – in­cred­i­bly – is cel­e­brat­ing its 25th birth­day this year.

What fol­lows in a run­down of our pick of the very best fast Fords and why there has never been a bet­ter time to nab one for your­self. The likes of the Sierra RS Cos­worth (and its rar­erstill RS500 sta­ble­mate) may now be pretty much out of the reach of mere mor­tals, but we have proof pos­i­tive that there are plenty of other blue oval hot rods that are most cer­tainly not. Each is im­bued with bags of char­ac­ter and all are ca­pa­ble of beat­ing up on more youth­ful fare out on chal­leng­ing B-roads.

Buy one now be­fore the rest of the world cot­tons on…
