Ford’s frontline rally-car for more than a decade, the Escort proved capable of winning at World Championship level from 1968 to 1981. The Lotus twin-cam engine was the favoured power unit until 1971 when the 16-valve Cosworth BDA took over, while the factory also developed derivatives using the overhead camshaft Pinto and pushrod Kent engine. The latter was used only in the Escort 1850GT, which was developed specifically for the Daily Mirror World Cup Rally of 1970, the Kent engine being considered more reliable than the alternatives. The World Cup Rally finished in Mexico City, thus giving its name to the Escort ‘Mexico’ road car, and was the only event in which the 1850GT participated. It turned out to be a most rewarding venture for Ford as the works Escorts dominated, finishing 1st, 3rd, 5th, 6th and 8th. This Escort was built in May 1972 and first registered ‘RWC 483K’ as a Mexico by the Ford Motor Company, Warley, although the bodyshell is a Type 49 Twin-Cam to export specific
