When Ford launched the Escort XR3, the benchmark VW Golf GTi had ruled the hot hatchback market for several years. However, Ford's new offering was a package that combined the looks, performance, and handling demanded by customers in the early eighties. With the introduction of the fuel injected XR3i in 1983, performance was further improved and the XR range captivated a new younger audience who had moved on from the old rear-wheel drive Escorts beloved by their parents. Offered here is a 1988 Escort XR3i finished in Ford's motorsport colours of Diamond White with a Grey interior. It's also fitted with a period Ford body kit and has a recorded mileage of only 69,000 kms. Originally German registered, the car was imported into Denmark, unfortunately, prohibitive import taxes meant that this pretty Escort remained in storage for fifteen years. Fast Fords of the eighties are now rising in value so grab yourself a ‘no reserve' bargain.
