A RALLY and race track winner, Ford’s Mark 1 Escorts are now in great demand globally. The Escort proved a world-beater, dominating the London-Mexico World Cup Rally in 1970. Developed by Ford’s Competition Department the Twin Cam was launched in January 1968 and became an instant legend. Purchased in partially restored condition, the owner completed the rebuild of this Australian-assembled Escort, installing a reconditioned twin cam engine running dual Weber carbs and upgrades including a bigger radiator and Minilite-style alloy rims. Showing 30,610 miles on the clock it has been driven sparingly on club runs.
