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.
