1990 Ford Escort Sport 1.6 petrol from UK and Ireland
A sweet dream for years
The Wheel Arches had corroded slightly at the back of the car.
The passenger side door had rusted on the rim at the bottom of the door.
The underbody needed re-sealing due to damp.
The Tracking needed re-aligning due to a past accident.
The Valve oil seals needed replacing at 93,000 miles.
The area around the Fuse box had corroded badly.
The car handles almost perfectly and is very responsive.
It Accelerates like a Cosworth.
The seats are factory bucket seats and are probably the most comfortable I have sat in.
The driving position is lower than expected.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
