Obviously a specced up flight that has obviously not been registered until 2002. as for the engine size.. Erm, obviously the factory that knocked it together didnt have any 1.6s available, or maybe it was a museum car/lobby car and its engine didnt have to be correct?

 

Or the badges and extras were just chucked on a 1.4 they found in a corner somewhere so they could get it shifted 4 years after they stopped making it

Why?

 

Its only a 1.4

The specs on the last escorts were pretty terrible

Its made of the same crap metal in teh same crap way as all other escorts so its rear arches and chassis rails will still rust out any day now

And because its only a "late nineties" car then it has probably not been looked after as well as other 2002 cars

Ford sometimes give a newly developed car to people to test for a period of time to see how it performs in the field, a few years ago they gave 6 people a 3 cylinder fiesta to test for 6 months maybe this was one of them kinda tests, or as said already maybe it just sat in a dealers for 2 yrs

ford often do that. though if that were the case with that escort it would be older than when the mk6 was launched.

I mind seeing a mk2 focus on an 02 plate. it was a ford test car given to a mate of mine :)

the insurance quotes dont recognise the number plate..... very odd!
