Ford Escort mk1 1968 Lotus twincam / twin cam
My newly finished project. Escort mk1 twin cam chassis number BB49XXXXXXX.
One of the early versions. Fully restored to original spec. Only missing
the plastic inlet manifold part, anybody? ;-) I do have the metal parts.
Standard 701M engine with big valve head and Elan sprint cams for a bit
Drives great, a bit easier as the rs1600 which is a LOT faster with it's new engine but less a
"normal" drivers car.
LHD is a bit more easier on this side of the North Sea ;-)

O Ford Escort foi um automóvel criado pela secção da Ford Motor Company
A geração MK1 foi produzida de 1968 a 1974, na Europa, com carroçaria
arredondada remetendo ao estilo da época. Tinha tração traseira e estava
equipado com motores 1.1 e 1.3. Em 1969 surgiu a versão RS 1600, que
produzia 120 cv. Em 1973 surgiu a versão RS 2000 com 100 cv, motor pinto
The Mark I Ford Escort was introduced in the United Kingdom at the end of
1967, making its show debut at Brussels Motor Show in January 1968. It
replaced the successful long running Anglia. The car was presented in
continental Europe as a product of Ford's European operation. Escort
production commenced at Halewood in England during the closing months of
1967, and for left hand drive markets during September 1968 at the Ford
plant in Genk. Initially the continental Escorts differed slightly from
the UK built ones under the skin. The front suspension and steering gear
were differently configured and the brakes were fitted with dual hydraulic
circuits; also the wheels fitted on the Genk-built Escorts had wider
rims. At the beginning of 1970, continental European production
transferred to a new plant on the edge of Saarlouis, West Germany.
The 2.0 L RS2000 version, with its distinctively slanted polyurethane nose,
and featuring the Pinto engine from the Cortina, was announced in the UK in
March 1975 and introduced in Germany in August 1975, being reportedly
produced in both countries. It provided a claimed 110 bhp and a top speed
of 110 mph (177 km/h). For acceleration to 100 km/h (62.5 mph) a time of
just 8.9 seconds was claimed by the manufacturers.
Escort Cosworth Vs Escort GTi Vs Mondeo Ghia Ford Alloy wheels
A quick comparison of the alloys made by Ford which people often get
Escort RS Cosworth - 8Jx16 ET25 usually fitted with 225 45 16 tyres.
Escort GTi - Usually fitted with 195 50 15 tyres
Mondeo Ghia - Usually fitted with 205 55 16 but people who fit them to the
escort usually use 195 45 16 to prevent scrubbing.
Ofcourse many people change the width or profile of their tyres and this is
just a rough guide but this video was intended to help out in regards to
people on sites such as ebay etc claiming a vehicle is fitted with Cosworth

90's you have a Cosworth sat on your drive - one with proper racing
heritage and a performance that could humble a supercar. We took a pair of
iconic Cosworths for a spin.
