    I'm also not a fan of the badges but that Mk1 escort is ace.
    I've always had a soft spot for Cortina mk2

    Escort went along time a go.
    Its a fast if not faster than an rs4 so why not the badges
    As I said before..
    Each to there own.
    I know you get alot of true enthusiasts on here.
    But I like them.
    My dad had the cortina mk1 e

    If the badges make you happy leave them on. But a RS4 is more than just engine power.

    Its more of an aesthetic look.
    I keep all the original parts.
    Grill, exhaust badges etc..
    Just need another 25k for the b8 rs4..


    Anyhow I wouldn't swap the 3l v6 for any engine.

    And it does 30mpg.
    Best of both worlds!

    Not sure there was a Mark One Cortina E; or maybe your dad just liked the badges. :)

    I'm sorry to learn you've just lost your dad. Certainly I wasn't trying to be rude; just aiming to have some light-hearted fun, not knowing the circumstances.

    No worries.
    We also had a mk3 cortina
    That was just a big old banger but I loved it!
    Dark blue with big pvc seats....

    Back in 1976 we had a neighbour that had a MK2 1600E, took it to Blackpool for a day trip, it disappeared as lots of them did back then! I went to look at a MK1 Escort 1300E once to replace my Escort van (young newly married couple's collection/delivery transport), unfortunately at that time the prices were rising and a MK Escort Ghia 1600 offered a lot more for similar money, so I grabbed one of them.

    Haha..
    I liked my dads mk2 cortina and in a way I liked the mk3 although it was a lump!
    But in the late 80s i bought an old 1974 Lombard rac mk1 escort..
    Loved it
    Sold it for £500!!..
    I would love it back now

    Poor MK1 Escorts, still plenty out there getting thrashed through forest tracks and places like Rally Design selling parts for them!
