Great example of the Mk3 Escort, German spec, in 'Keltische Bronze'. 2 owners, the first imported it new from Germany to save the special car tax at the time. The interior is superb and has obviously been very well looked after. The cambelt has been replaced along with the starter motor and fuel pump, and a stainless exhaust fitted in 1986. The car was rustproofed from new. 83,000 recorded miles, and drives really well. To be featured in Classic Car Weekly end of July.

This meant 110bhp and a top speed of 115mph. Externally there was little difference between the Escort Twin-Cam and its tamer sister, the Escort GT. A reinforced bodyshell with wider wheel arches and quarter bumpers hid the uprated suspension and front disc brakes were standard equipment. The Escort Twin-Cam was conceived and developed by Ford's Boreham based competitions department during 1967 and unleashed on an unsuspecting public during January 1968; going on to achieve many international race and rally victories during its short production life. Ford entered their first event with the Escort, taking part in the new formula of motorsport, Rallycross and also entering at an event at Croft (still used today), the Escort Twin-Cam won 4 races out right. The Ford works team was practically unbeatable in the late 1960's and 1970's with, arguably, the Escort's greatest victory in the 1970 London to Mexico World Cup Rally. In total, just 883 Escort Twin-Cams were built before production ended to make way for the RS1600.

The Ford Escort is a small family car manufactured by Ford of Britain and Ford Germany from 1968 to 2002. The Ford Escort name was also applied to several different small cars produced in North America by Ford between 1981 and 2002/03 (see Ford Escort (North America)). Ford will relaunch the Ford Escort on the Chinese car market in 2014 (see Ford Escort (China)). The first use of the Escort name was for a reduced specification version of the Ford Squire, a 1950s estate car version of the Ford Anglia 100E, though this did not sell well by comparison to the other members of the 100E family. 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 an

The car is one of the 25 cars built in Germany for Ford Australia and imported to comply with the then CAMS rules for Group C Production Touring cars, which was then the peak category for sedan based Motorsport in Australia. The Eligibility requirement was that cars could be recognised as Australian Touring Cars if they were of 'FIA Group 1 and must be one of at least 25 cars complying with recognition documents imported into the Australia'. Other than the 25 German cars, the Mk2 RS2000 was not sold in Australia until 1979 and the importation of the 25 cars built in Germany was used to permit the RS2000 to race at Bathurst in 1976 and 1977, and compete in various other rally and circuit categories/events. Many of the 25 cars became competition vehicles campaigned by famous names in Australian motor sport including Bob Holden and Bruce Hodgson, there are some quite famous examples including the De Bortoli car (chassis no. 18271) that can be seen immediately behind the two XC Falcon coupés that crossed the line together in the famous 1-2 Moffatt/Bond finish to win Bathurst in 1977. The 25 cars arrived from Germany in March 1976, and as the cars were imported by Ford Australia, they h

The Mark I Ford Escort was introduced in the United Kingdom at the end of 1967, making its show debut at the Brussels Motor Show in January 1968. The Escort quickly became the best selling car of the 1960’s in the UK and much of Europe. Ford were keen for the car to participate in the growing sport of Rallying where the Mark I Escorts were extremely successful. The Mark I eventually went on to become one of the most successful rally cars of all time. The Ford works team was practically unbeatable in the late 1960s / early 1970s, and arguably the Escort's greatest victory was the 1970 London to Mexico Rally in which it was driven by Finnish legend Hannu Mikkola. This gave rise to the Escort Mexico special edition in honour of the rally car. The Escort Mexico offered here at Hofmann’s is a recreation of the Type 49 rally car. Commissioned by a wealthy enthusiast who was keen to compete in historic road rally events. This exceptional recreation started life as a rust free Ford Mexico standard road car. The car was stripped back to bare metal then steel bubble arches were seam welded with inner wings fabricated to strengthen and accommodate the four linked rear suspension, coilover tur
