Looking at the ZX2 to pick up for a project. Have my sites on a 2000 green (been repainted) with auto. Has tan interior, not a bad color but not good either. Has 131K on it but runs solid, idles like a city bus??? :eek:

I just like to work on the older cars repaint them etc.

Anyway, is the zx2 an Escort with a different front and rear bumper cover and a unique interior?

TIA

The ZX2 is supposed to be a sporty version of the Escort, like the GT of the previous generations. As previously mentioned, it has a Zetec engine, rated at 130 hp compared to the sedan's SPI engine rated at 110 hp. It also has two less doors, and has a different, more angular look inside and outside. Under the sheet metal, however, the ZX2 is identical to the sedan.

Hey thanks for the info guys.
I ran a Carfax on this one and there is only a red flag on the odemeter. Otherwise no crashes or issues.
The speedometer worked when I drove it not sure about the odo.

I am not sure if a speedometer assembly is easy to fix or replace on this car. Also don't know if the title can be cleared after this is done.

Timing belt was replaced at 121K so that is completed.
