70's icon or a get your coat and go home
I love them and the Mexico is a favourite.
p.s. Where's the poll?
I can see it at the top. Is it not showing for you?
Superb car of its time brother had a white one and it went like the clappers handled well as it should being rally inspired.
I still love these. A mate had an tuned orange RS2000 & another had a mk1 Mexico with tuned 2.1 Pinto engine. Great fun to drive
Yeah excellent car for it era loved the mexico too
Yeah Ford did some nice cult cars around that time RS2000, Mexico, RS1800, anyone remember the Harrier?
You still see plenty of Mk2 escorts on the rally seen even now
Would love any of the above as a toy, so much easier to work on than todays cars!!
Yeah the Mk2 rocks. Rallying icon so it deserves to be cool.
i love them, but have to say i prefer the mk1 escort to mk2, apart from this one with the droop snoot front end
rear wheel drive fun.
the 2.1 pinto was a real good engine (they all were infact Mexico,RS)
wouldnt mind a X-Pack mk2 to blast about in today but sadly there arnt many left and the ones that are left are fetching big money
I know nothing about them, but the Mk11 RS2000 is deffo cool!
Definately one for my `dream garage`.
RS2000 (MK1 preferably), with 4x4 Cosworth engine and running gear putting out around 400bhp.
Seen it years ago in a performance Ford mag sitting on its bump stops with OEM RS rims in a FORD green colour.
My first car was a Mk1 escort 1100 into which I transplated a MK2 cortina 1600GT engine and Capri running gear as the original non servod drum brakes were scary, but the thing I remember most about the car was the foot pump on the floor for the windscreen washers!!!........How times have changed.
not a fan of Fords but mate took me out in his and I had never been in anything that cornered like that.. I wanted one but was only on £26 a week (YTS)
