The economy cars of our youth become the classic cars of today. But it's not just age that makes a car desirable. You need to be exceptionally well-preserved, like this 1986 Ford Escort. The exterior, interior, and engine bay are all exceptionally presented, and you even get the added fun of a five-speed.
Like the Chevy Nova or the Ford Falcon, the Ford Escort is really starting to get appreciated for the added style that came in smaller dimensions. You see it in the flush-mounted headlights, flared fenders, and a hatchback that gives this fastback-style lines. This car may be working on its 35th birthday, but this one doesn't even look half its age. Straight panels, good gaps, and only showing few signs of use show how you could get a quality American car in the 1980s. And the Regatta Blue paint is not only believed to be the original application, but it also it has a lighter blue pinstripe for a true touch of sophistication.
The sea of blue continues inside, and just like the exterior, it has a level of preservation that's almost like a time capsule. The front seats have a comfy cloth patter, and they are well-bolstered with headrest to be long haul comfortable. The rear seat is upholstered to match, and it folds down to give you plenty of practical cargo area with the hatchback. This Escort shows the right premium features of the time like, a factory AM/FM stereo, electric rear defogger, and an overhead console with digital clock. This is even a factory air conditioning car, and it has been converted to modern R134a, so it likely only needs a recharge to blow cold again. And because this is a classic you want to drive, you get a grippy steering wheel, floor shift, and full gauge package with large speedo and tach.
Under the hood is the correct 1.9-liter motor. It looks just as well-preserved as the rest of the car, and it runs with the gusto of a well-respected machine. The secret to this car's driving fun is that you take full control over it with the five-speed manual transmission. The power is over the front wheels in this front wheel drive machine, and so the traction is always good, and the fully independent suspension makes it quite nimble. You even have power brakes with discs up front.
The sale come complete with some nice extras, like a car cover and some engine spares. Rarely do we see economy cars from this era so well-preserved, and so this is a rare opportunity at nostalgia few others will experience. Call today!!!
