    My 85 ford escort gt turbo front bumper has cracked bad and can't find a replacement anywhere? So I think my only option is to move to a newer year front bumper and body kit...fml please advise...need help guys.

    Would be cool if an uk bummer would fit. If you find one let us know if it fits.

    That being said. I know the 85 chrome bumpers do not fit early escorts. Also half way into 85 the Ford gave the escort a facelift.
    Aside from that I can be of much more help.

    Steer clear of the 89-90 bumpers, made of a hard plastic unlike every 80s-90s Ford bumper that shatters on minor impact. The rear bumpers for those also are specific to 89-90 GTs ONLY, they don't fit anything else. But the non-GT bumpers might be interchangeable with other years, not sure. The front GTs might be interchangeable too as the front clip is otherwise the same across all 86-90 cars.
