The Legend That Never Dies — My first car was a Ford Escort Mk1, the one showed in the picture, and it was one of the first models that were imported in Malta, in 1968. I bought it from an old man who had owned it from new and I loved it. I then had to sell it since i bought the Fiat and couldn't afford to keep two cars. I still regret selling it though...keep in mind that when i bought it in 2005 it had 37 years, and it was still original, running on its original engine....and it served me for a year and a half without a fault. I totally reccomend it to motoring enthusiasts who want to have real fun driving a car...especially with the legendary 1.6 pushrod engine. Tune it up (weber sidedraughts, uprated intake/exhaust manifolds, race camshaft, higher compression pistons and lightened flywheel) and it would develop approx 150 bhp easily. Fantastic car!

Pros: Great fun to drive, rear wheel drive, great visibility from inside the car, easy controls and pedals, powerful engine if tuned.

Cons: Fuel economy leaves a bit to be desired, but anyway, its a 1968 car!!! Still it's not a petrol drinker....from the 1.3 engine u get approx 30-35mpg which is not bad. Don't expect fuel economy from the 1.6 or a 2.0 litre engine, though if driven carefully, won't get drunk on petrol either. Can be used as an everyday car, but u have to prepare an average 20-25 euros per week on fuel. If one is looking for fuel economy, you can always fit a 1.6 diesel engine very easily and ull be happy  :)
