What I want to know is, since these scorts enjoy such great longevity, why didn´t Ford put one more digit on the odometer? Then we´d know the mileage for sure. I bought my 91 with 103k on it. With the odometer reading 3k, it was obvious the car had more miles on it than that. A no-brainer. But with 75k showing, how can you know? Wear will be showing, but how much really depends on how the car was driven and maintained.
Yeah, carfax reports are great, I checked my 91 and found it had a very clean history, and also that I´m the 6th owner, lol. I hope to get 160k miles out of it too. I´m glad that your scort runs very strong despite the miles on it. Btw I think Slapyo has a totally built, higher compression 1.8L engine for sale. If you can afford it, I´m sure it´d up your power and give you many years of good service. Check out his pics!
