well it looks like base or pony,i'm assuming your bumpers aren't color matched, and if they are not then it could be a base model. but ive seen pony's with those bumpers too.. hmm.. this is tough.... why dont you go to Carfax.com, run your vin , (you dont have to pay for the service) and it will tell u 1992 Ford Escort Pony, or LX or w/e

the Pony was a little more than a base model escort too dont forget. im pretty sure they considered base to mean a stripped down LX. early escorts all had grey bumpers regardless of trim except for the GT.

i have a 91 escort pony. it has PONY badges on the fenders, no AC, no PS, it does have a rear defroster 5psd Fuel Saver trans, and a radio however.

best bet is to run the VIN. id have the dealer do it.. just ask if its a base model lx, standard escort (not pony or LX), or a Pony.

The escort line for 91 and 92 is as follows.

Base model is the pony.Lx was in between and then the gt at the high end.Next weekend I will get my 91 escort sales brochure and I will scan the options page where it shows all the models from lowest to highest.

It's a 94.

I'll have to check tomorrow to see if it's cloth or plastic. But it's a two door hatchback, 5speed.

The seat folds down if that's an option on these cars...
Other than that... it's got nothing. No buttons for anything. No switches. Etc.
I'll rerun the vin tomorrow morning to see what it says.

Light grey bumpers were in 91 and in 92 the had darker grey bumpers.The ponys also didnt have split folding rear seat.The backseat lowered as one piece.
Yep, I forgot about that one. Also Ponys didn't come stock with a stereo, they were an option.

I'm not sure about the 94's but does it have side moulding? Does it have red and amber rear reflectors that run along the trunk?

well, judging by the fact that you have
NO Reflectors out back, One Piece Rear Seat
NO Factory passenger side mirror
NO Side Moldings, Grey Bumpers,
What Look Like Plastic Door Panels
And 13" rims I've only seen on Ponys,

I'd say u got a pony, Loaded with the option of...... RADIO
And maybe the car was involved in an accident and both front fenders were replaced, hence the lack of Pony Badges...

I could be wrong, but it looks like a pony to me

lol. That's what I'm thinking.

I'm going to the jy today to see if I can find some badges for it and some sideskirts.
And some GT rims if I can find them.

I got a question: The GT wheels, were they the same overall size as the pony? (As in rim was bigger, but had less tire.) Or was the whole thing bigger (and in result it would throw off my speedometer.)

Cause I gotta buy new tires soon, so I might as well get something to look nice in for them. Today I did a hard stop from 20mph and lost grip... The car slid... :?


I'm gonna see what the costs there are for either a 2.0 SPI or a 1.9 HO header.

Yes you have a 93 escort pony but I believe they dropped the fender badges after 92 to indicate it as a pony.The GT wheels are 15 inch and It wont throw off your speedo much is you do the correct plus sizing.Hence you have 175/70/13 tires.The 15 inch I would go with a 195/60/15 size tire for those rims.

13" rims came on LX's also from what I've heard and he does have a passenger side mirror.

But I also think that it is a Pony. Does anyone know if they made Ponys from '91 to '96 the whole life span of the 2nd Gen?

Also I think that he said that his was a '94

As you can tell the pony name plate was dropped after the 92 model year and they just used the escort name.The lx-e sedan that came standard 1.8 DOHC engine was only available for the 92 and 93 model years.
Retail prices are from edmunds.Which would vary greatly depending on options,condition and mileage.KBB and NADA might have lower or higher price on the cars.
