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.

Fiat 131, Racing - Toad, The Early Years...
Fiat 131 SuperMirafiori modified for circuit racing, in those days Toad had
a 2Ltr n/a engine, starting with about 150, ending at about 185bhp ish.
Not much, but the suspension and brakes seemed to work well enough. This
was about 20 years ago, and now the cars off the track, being turned into
the fully spaceframed 500bhp (predicted) wide arch beast that is EvoToad.
It'll be done soon were currently doing the engine, but video number 4 will
be up soon, this is just a filler :) EvoToad......
ITALIANI Fiat 131 SuperMirafiori modificato per gare su circuito, in quei
giorni aveva un Toad 2Ltr n / a motore, a partire da circa 150, che termina
a circa 185bhp ish. Non molto, ma le sospensioni e freni sembrava
funzionare abbastanza bene. Questo è stato circa 20 anni fa, e ora le
vetture fuori pista, essendo diventato il 500bhp completamente spaceframed
(prevista) di larghezza bestia arco che è EvoToad. Sarà fatto presto
furono sta facendo il motore, ma il numero 4 video sarà presto, questo è
solo un riempitivo:) EvoToad ......
