Ford fans vote Escort number one Ford model

The Ford Escort hasn’t been seen in Australia for many a year but there would be plenty of Aussies that have fond memories of the Ford small car.

But in the UK the Ford Escort has had a much greater impact and now Ford fans there have named it as their favourite Ford model, ever.

Launched in 1968, the Escort was sold in six generations in the UK before the pin was pulled on the model in the early 2000’s. Over its 30+ years in existence in the UK the Ford Escort became the bestselling car of all-time in the nation.

With performance models such as the RS2000 and RS Cosworth, the Escort was and is a big part of the UK car scene.

Now, the Escort has scored 36% of the vote in a survey organised by The Classic Ford Show on the UK’s favourite Ford. The Escort beating the Capri, Anglia, Cortina, Mustang and Granada.

The survey was undertaken ahead of The Classic Ford Show which will be held on the 5th of June.
