FORD ESCORT RS2000 MKII
2-door 4-seater saloon.
Third variety, and much the most successful, of Rallye Sport escort of MkII type. 110bhp Pinto engine gave near-110mph top speed with style, helped by plastic wedge nose and cast-allow wheels. Two varieties from late '78, cheaper version with steel wheels to take over from Mexico, 'Custom' with even more up-market furnishings. Fast, nimble, a great driver's car, and firmly established today as modern 'classic'.
