Ford Escort Mk3 & mk4 incl. Bantam

Saw this on OLX...

Probably not a collectable, but increasingly scarce to find in reasonably good condition, especially the "Leisure" model. The 1st generation Bantam, which was based on the Mk3 Escort, and manufactured between 1983 and 1993 was a truly South African product, much like the Cortina bakkie. I believe we never officially received Mk4 Escort's in SA, but somewhere in its production life the 1st gen Bantam, and Mazda Rustler received the Mk4 Escort's front end, like on this example.

I had a mint 1988 Mazda Rustler 1400 - very comfortable but the worst engine ever made by SAMCOR.........FORD CVH.

That sunk Ford's reputation for a while...... :cry:

True -a real crappie engine, no wonder they reverted to the trusted Kent engine in the 2nd generation Mk3's

so after a long 2 year wait and religiously monthly calls ...i yesterday bought and collected my XR3 i have been chasing. It took a fair bit of effort to get out of the sealed(thats right...sealed off ) garage - first time the car has seen daylight in 20 years.Words cannot explain this cars condition - it is better than new. It has done 10 000km
