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.
Building Mk2 Escort rally cars
Past Wyedean Rally winner Dave Jenkins talks about the Mk2 Ford Escort,
made from 1975 to 1980, and its enduring legacy in rallying.
The video coincides with the first Escort Dave Jenkins Motorsport has
built, which took a humble one-time economy car and turned it into a
performance machine with a price tag of more than £100,000.

Video of one of the first few runs of the new duratec install. I went to a
lot of trouble to get that rattle in the cabin just right. Wouldn't be a
modified escort without a good rattle......... :-)
