BEL006 Ford Escort Mk1 RS1600 1973 1:24 Scale

The Mark I Ford Escort was introduced in Ireland and the United Kingdom at the end of 1967, making its show debut at the Brussels Motor Show in January 1968. It replaced the successful, long-running Anglia. A higher performance version for rallies and racing was available, built for Group 2 international rallying. The Mark I Escorts became successful as a rally car, and they eventually went on to become one of the most successful rally cars of all time. Once the cars reliability was established it went on to take many international rally wins including the Thousand Lakes in Finland, the Safari, Circuit of Ireland and three consecutive outright wins on the Lombard RAC rally from 1972 to 1974. Many famous drivers such as Roger Clark, Timo Makinen, Hannu became synonymous with the little Escort. On the circuits the lightweight RS1600 racers from the likes of BroadSpeed and Zakspeed developed a giant killing reputation using 2 litre fuel injected versions of the BDA engine developing up to 280 b.h.p.

This model car kit accurately recreates the real life rally car. This model requires paint and glue to complete.

  • Left and right hand drive versions included.
  • Multi light configuration including square and round headlights.
  • Large and small additional front lights.
  • Flush clip in glazing.
  • Metal transfers.
  • 2x different tyre tread patterns.
