Description

Ford's rear-wheel-drive Escorts achieved legendary status through their amazing success on roads, rally stages, and racetracks. Millions were sold worldwide, as they proved to be winners in the hands of the car-buying public and motorsport champions alike. Today, Mk1s and Mk2s (1967 to 1980) have become collectable classics, and values continue to rise, often equalling traditionally more desirable marques. The Ford Escort Mk1 & Mk2 handy, quick-reference guide is for anyone considering buying, owning, or restoring an early Escort. It aims to aid the purchasing process and help to avoid the potential pitfalls of a car that's not only simple to work on, but also easy to bodge for an overpriced sale. Written by a motoring journalist and long-term Escort enthusiast, this one-stop package of great advice is the ideal accompaniment to sampling and assessing a Mk1 or Mk2 on sale privately, at a dealer, or an online auction. It includes at-a-glance tips, illustrated in-depth inspection guidance, valuation data, specifications, notes on modifications to avoid, real-world cost considerations, and even checks on how to spot an Escort claiming to be something it's not.

The author

Buying fast Fords has been an addiction for Dan Williamson since getting an Escort Mk1 at the age of just 15. His subsequent career as a motoring journalist started in 1997, covering new cars, classics and performance machines for magazines including Fast Ford, Classic Ford and many others. Dan is the author of several books about sporty Fords, with a lifelong passion for everything with a Blue Oval badge: his collection includes Fords from the 1970s, ’80s, ’90s, 2000s and ’10s, including an up-rated Focus ST.
