1975-1980 FORD Escort Mk II specificationshttp://www.classicandperformancecar.comClassic and Performance CarClassic and Performance Car
In 1975, the MkII Escort came along and, like the Cortina before it, lost many of the curves of the original in favour of a square-cut look which many considered bland. However, bland often sells well if the rest of the package is good, and the MkII proved this, with around two-million sold during its five-year life. Underneath the boxy body, everything was much the same as on the MkI model, albeit with the addition of a 1599cc engine to complement the existing 1098cc and 1298cc ones. Trim levels were just as varied as before.
