Buying Guide for Ford Escort Classic Cars

Versatility and affordability combined to form the Ford Escort Mk1, with the designation of Mk1 indicating the model was the first generation of Escorts. What started out as mostly a family car evolved into sporty rally cars and quickly became seen throughout Europe. Original used models can still be found on eBay for affordable prices.

What body styles are available in the Ford Escort Mk1?

During the years of 1967-1975, there were four body styles of Ford Escorts manufactured. These were front-engine cars with rear-wheel drive. Various powertrains were used in the body styles, from 0.9L up to 2.0L. The four body styles are the following:

  • 2-door sedan
  • 4-door sedan
  • 3-door estate
  • 2-door van
Escort Mk1 models

Within the different body styles, Ford offered a few different choices of models with the Mk1 Escort. The De Luxe model had circular front headlights and rubber flooring, whereas the Super model had rectangular headlights and carpet. The Super model also featured a cigar lighter and water temperature gauge, features not regularly seen in cars at that time. When the estate style was introduced, it featured a back seat that could fold down, increasing the maximum load space by 40%.

What makes an Escort Mexico Mk1 different from other models?

The Escorts quickly became very successful as rally cars, with a win at the 1970 London to Mexico World Cup Rally. In honour of this win, the Escort Mexico was rolled out. This is a special edition created specifically for competition. It was built with additional panels to add strength to the car in areas of high stress. It also features a 1598cc crossflow engine. The RS1600 and RS2000 were later introduced as rally cars, but the Ford Escort Mexico was the first one to be manufactured.

Are there many Escort Mk1s still around?

In seven years, Ford produced more than two million Escort Mk1s. There were an array of models available, allowing pretty much any budget the ability to own an Escort. However, decades later, most of these original cars have disappeared. The more mainstream models are easier to find than the more coveted sporty editions like the Mexico and the RS1600. Be careful when looking for sportier versions, as many clever fakes came out on the market when the demand was high and supply was low. eBay offers both the mainstream models as well as the ones that are harder to find.
