The Escort will be, of course, familiar to many car enthusiasts, but where have they all gone? Here and there, we still come across a nice Escort, but finding a completely restored and overhauled special Mexico edition? That’s something special.

This beautiful Ford Escort, finished in Signal Orange with a black vinyl interior, was registered in Switzerland in 1972 and delivered there. Today, an authentic Escort Mexico is very rare and almost impossible to find, especially not one the presented in such a prime state. This is a Mexico edition; a special series to celebrate Ford’s success at the London Rally. Hannu Mikkola and Gunnar Palm won this rally in 1970.

When it comes to restoration and overhaul, opinions on these definitions can often differ. That is certainly not the case with this specimen. Here we are talking about a ‘bare-metal’ restoration, where the entire car was completely restored and overhauled. Take a look at the photos and judge for yourself. A Swiss Ford specialist took care of this car and rebuilt it. In principle, we find this quality of restoration in cars in the high to very high price range, and on close inspection of the car, we can only conclude the quality level is higher than when this Ford left the factory in 1972. Since the restoration and overhaul work, this Ford hasn’t seen much asphalt. Only 1,200 km have been driven by this Escort.

They are fantastic fun cars! With 86 hp and a weight of only 800 kg, the words ‘light and nimble’ quickly come to mind. And that’s certainly true for this Ford.
