All this detailed information is vital to the buyer, owner and restorer.   Each model's section opens with a brief text introduction followed by specially commissioned color photographs with extended captions. For quick reference to accurate and comprehensive information, this formula is hard to beat.

The author

Sporting Escorts have been a fixture in Dan Williamson's life for longer than he remembers. Early childhood spent sliding across the seats of his dad's GT-engined Mk1 instilled an anorak-level addiction to fast Fords. Like most Escort enthusiasts, his condition is incurable. Dan was given his first car aged 15, a 1972 Mk1 that's perhaps best described as a long-term project. It currently shares garage space with a '71 Mexico and a 1600 Sport. Dan trained as a newspaper reporter before deciding it's more fun to write about cars. He's been a motoring journalist since 1997, working for the UK's leading automotive publishers. Today he's a freelance contributor to a variety of magazines, including Fast Ford.
