    Hi everyone, I'm Killian, a 20 y/o Frenchman who just bought this MkIV Escort Estate. It's from 1988, it has the 1.4 CVH mated to the 5 speed MT. It's in good shape and has 193k km. It runs very well (although the transmission is giving signs of severe wear) and the body is in good shape overall. It's passed inspection successfully, the suspension is in good shape and the underbody is in great shape (especially for a car of this era).

    Very nice!

    I really like the headlights and front appearance.
    The wheels look very 1980s science fiction.

    Can you post some pictures of the engine?

    Very nice car. I really like the front view with those headlights.

    The wheels are very much 1980s science fiction.

    Welcome. We can only envy your Escort. The escorts here in the USA are very different, but at least they made a lot of them, so we have pretty solid aftermarket support.
