Can a 1991 British Escort's fenders/lights be swapped onto an American Escort.

Asked by Aug 11, 2015 at 04:26 AM about the 1991 Ford Escort 2 Dr LX Hatchback

Question type: Car Customization

So I absolutely love the look of a 1991 Ford Escort Cosworth but since I live in America the chance of owning a car like that is next to impossible. Is there any way I could take an American Ford Cosworth and put the fenders and lights of the Cosworth onto the American frame and shell. I know it would be difficult but I'm savvy with bodywork and metal. The basic question is: would it bolt up or were the two vehicles different in every way.

I think you can, there may be a few parts that you may have somewhat of a difficult time with, but if you are savvy then you may pull it off, good luck...

Be sure that the lights meet 1991 specifications. Some States, like New Jersey for example, don't check. But in other States incorrect lighting may prevent you from passing a motor vehicle inspection. HTH. -Jim
