Ford Escort MK1 RS2000-R

"The Ford Escort Mk1 is perhaps Ford’s single largest success outside of the United States, over 2 million were built between 1968 and 1975, and the name still carries significant weight in the UK and much of Europe.

The formula of the Mk1 was relatively simple, it had a stamped steel body, MacPherson strut independent front suspension, a live rear axle sitting on leaf springs, rack-and-pinion steering, two doors (initially), and a 4-cylinder engine that ranged in size from 0.9 litres up to 2.0 litres.

None of these specifications were ground-breaking, none were all that modern, and they certainly weren’t unique."
