Escort MK6 rare factory Options

Like if this guide is helpful


The Escort Mk6 has been a popular car right through the 90s since it was first released in 1995, models such as the RS2000 and SI  not to mention the GHIA came along first then the GTI and FINESSE further down the line

Ford at the time did have a accessory brochure of all the extras you could buy apart from the options sheet when buying new from the dealership and these parts are very rare now and come up for sale once in a blue moon so if you spot any snap them up without thinking that's if you can afford to that is, lucky for escort owners many parts are easily interchangeable between models with little or no work at all such as the list below

The GTI came in 3 forms,  3 and 5 door hatchbacks as well as the rare estate model and were made between 1997/98, although ford badged it as a GTI there is actually hardly any difference between them and normal 1.8 ZETEC models as both use the same 115ps engine, only the fact a half leather interior and body kit give it away as other changes are subtle such as the white speedo cluster and leather 3 spoke steering wheel, and ABS was fitted standard to all GTI models but spec was normally pretty poor compared to the GHIA or RS2000, rust lurking below the side skirts and rotten arches and chassis rails are worst problems for these cars
