This book covers the sporting versions of Ford Europe's Escort Mk2,
including the Mexico, Sport, Harrier, RS1800 and the RS2000.
Model-by-model, with hundreds of pictures, it gives you all the details
of correct factory specifications and equipment, including body panels,
external trim and badging, paint colors, interior trim and trim colors,
dashboard, instruments and switches, under-hood components, engine and
transmission, lamps, and all other features right down to the tool kit,
from the beginning of production to the end. All this detailed
information is vital to the buyer, owner and restorer. Each model's
section opens with a brief text introduction followed by specially
commissioned color photographs with extended captions. For quick
reference to accurate and comprehensive information, this formula is
hard to beat.
Sporting Escorts have been a fixture in Dan Williamson's life for longer
than he remembers. Early childhood spent sliding across the seats of his
dad's GT-engined Mk1 instilled an anorak-level addiction to fast Fords.
Like most Escort enthusiasts, his condition is incurable. Dan was given
his first car aged 15, a 1972 Mk1 that's perhaps best described as a
long-term project. It currently shares garage space with a '71 Mexico
and a 1600 Sport. Dan trained as a newspaper reporter before deciding
it's more fun to write about cars. He's been a motoring journalist since
1997, working for the UK's leading automotive publishers. Today he's a
freelance contributor to a variety of magazines, including Fast Ford.
