i dont think so, but im not sure. Before Jeffescortlx loses his mind from uttering this phrase for the 1,284,753 time, I'll do it for him: "The first gen is a Ford shell, the second gen is a Mazda, nothing is interchangable." :D Hope this helps. BTW, I'm not trying to be sarcastic, just funny.

that may be the case that the first gens are FORD, and the second are MAZDA with a ford emblem...but the only way youd be able to tell (besides this taking time, paitence and minor modifications) get your measuring and find out how close you are, you can make almost ANYTHING fit with enough time paitence and green. So check it out, i put a EXP bumper on a 1 gen GT, and i took it off again to modify somethin, and it messed up who knows???? ill see if i can get a pic of it for you. But like i said just measure it and see.

*it isnt my fault if you mess up your car*

Aslo, the mounting mechanism of the bumper in the 2gen bumper is On the bumper..there is no horizontal metal bumper bar like in civics and most cars...the bar is integrated to the bumper cover...and i don't know about the 1st gen...

If there is a separated mounting bumper bar in the 1st gen, you might be able to cut the bumper mounting bar from the 1rst gen and weld it or bolt it with custom holes to the 2nd gen bumper...
Once the 1st gen bumper bar is on the second gen, you'll be able to mount the bumper..but you will probably need to fiberglass the bumper to make it fit perfectly and fill some gaps and stuff like that...but hell..i was able to fit a Geo Metro bumper on my escort..so you can fit the EXp on the 2nd gen escort :p

Keep us informed about your project
