Debuting in early 1986 the Escort Mark IV was very much an evolution of its Mark III predecessor albeit that the newcomer was instantly distinguishable thanks to its more rounded nose and smoothed over, rather than 'straked', rear lamp clusters. Internally, the MKIV featured a revised dashboard and various other refinements.
Finished in Maritime Blue with Grey cloth upholstery, this particular example represents an interesting proposition for the Blue Oval collector. Equipped with a 1.3 litre carburettor-fed engine and manual transmission, 'F609 EAO' currently displays just 19,000 miles to its odometer (a figure which is reportedly substantiated by twenty-two previous MOT certificates). Reportedly very original, this 'time capsule' Ford is offered for sale with owner's handbook and current V5C Registration Document.
