Description

1991 Ford Escort GT Hatchback

The North American version of the Ford Escort is a range of cars that was sold by Ford from the 1981 to 2003 model years. The direct successor of the Ford Pinto, the Escort also largely overtook the role of the European-imported Ford Fiesta as the smallest vehicle in the Ford model line in North America. Produced across three generations, the first generation was a subcompact; the latter two generations were compact cars. Becoming highly successful in the marketplace, the Escort became the best-selling car in the United States after 1982, a position it would hold for much of the 1980s.

For consignment, a 1991 Ford Escort GT which would normally be just an everyday every person's car however due to passionate owners this car has been very well cared for and papered as a valuable classic car would have been. It spent its life in a climate controlled garage, and comes with Deluxe Marti Report which is normally reserved for classics, and because of its tender loving care really is.

Exterior
This sporty little car is all bathed in factory Cayman Green Metallic and it is nearly right off the showroom floor condition. A few underlying bubbles and some orange peel has developed near the seams but it is very minor. The square and rectangle era was ending from the 1980's and this car has some hints of it but is more rounded over than the typical square and rectangle. It has neoprene bumpers matching the body, and an interesting angled vented grille sporting said vents only on the drivers side. Down low, the rockers have some sporty flaring and the car has tinted side glass. The roofline is exaggerated for the rear passengers to have plenty of viewing glass, and as it is a GT version it has a rear spoiler on the trunk/hatchback. Lighting extends the width of the back of the car and even wraps around the corners of the rear quarters, with the hatchback creating a Mercedes-esque V shape in its design. Another neoprene bumper for the back matching the body and the car even has turbine styled color matching wheels wrapped in 185/60R15 rubber from 2023 so it IS like new.

Interior
A swing of the doors reveals pristine utilitarian light and dark gray mixture of vinyl molded panels and small checkered pattern broadcloth inserts. These are clean and on the bottoms is a storage tray with some gray carpeting. The carpeting is also on the floors of the interior, where in it float wide medium back height broadcloth buckets. These have gray velour bolsters and uppers and the inserts use the lighter gray small checkered pattern. The border between the two is a teal piping aging some color and contrast as well as the inserts use some wide tuck and roll stitched in panels. A pristine rear bench has the same pattern and provides extra room for 3 more passengers. A center console is in between the buckets and has some storage and the shifter. As it reaches the dash climate controls and an AM/FM Cassette player is installed and all very clean. The cluster is black and very simply appointed with circular sweep gauges, black faced with white lettering and numerals. The upper dash is titanium gray and a lower molded bottom is a light warmer gray. A gray felted material line headliner has a few areas of slight sagging but is mostly tight, and sporting a sunroof.

Drivetrain
Shoehorned under the hood is a well cared for and very clean OHC 1.8 liter I-4 cylinder engine. It has EFI and a F-4EAT 4-speed automatic transmission. Turning the front tires is a 3.74 final drive axle and stock exhaust is there for the exhale. The engine has no corrosion or dirt to speak of under this hood.

Undercarriage
As expected due to its TLC there is no rust or even much road dirt. Factory undercoating in black abounds and covers the spare tire and fuel tank area in the back. Suspension is courtesy of Macpherson with independent struts and arms all around. Power disc brakes are on all 4 corners. Very clean and obviously well cared for.

Drive-Ability
The car started immediately and ran as smooth as silk. It handled nicely and access in and out is easy with the wide doors for front and rear passengers. All functions are working nicely and all is very clean and tidy.

Certainly not a real valuable rare collectible, but due to its care by a long term Ford collector, this wonderful example is still like new and ready to grab some miles and fun or provide utilitarian transportation in vintage style! A Cayman GT edition up for grabs, so you better grab fast as these kinds of examples tend to go quickly.
