But in Europe, the Escort was was a respected small car that was a rally legend for over 40 years. The Escort RS was the performance model of the lineup, and featured a 1.6-liter four-cylinder motor designed with Ford's racing partner Cosworth. Combined with the lightweight chassis and agile handling, the RS would go on to become a World Rally champion. This 1973 Escort RS 1600 is one of only 1,200 AVO models, with a highly-tuned motor that makes over 250 horsepower. Heavy-duty suspension pieces, Bilstein shocks, and four-wheel disc brakes make the car a respectable performer 45 years later, and turn-key ready for vintage rallies.
