Roaring onto the UK car market in 1968, the Escort was a departure for Ford; the modern styling and mechanics boosted its appeal to the British public, so much so that it became the best-selling UK car in the Sixties. No doubt its adaptability aided its success – the model range, initially offered in saloon, estate and van form, was suited to everyone, from bright things looking for style, to families wanting value for money, and to business owners requiring reliability and an advertising platform.
This example of the sixth and final generation of Escort, clothed a van body, is probably a future classic commercial. With only one owner from new, this 1.4 petrol engined Ford is described as being good in all mechanical departments, and we are told drives well; however, the Van would benefit from some level of body restoration if the new owner so wishes.
The Ford is supplied with its V5C registration certificate and the last MOT test certificate which expired in July of this year.
