Auction Find: A 28k mile 1988.5 Ford Escort GT 5-Speed

The Ford Escort GT is a bit of an underappreciated classic these days but it shouldn’t be. The Ford Escort destined for the European markets were very different than the ones for the North American market. None the less you have the opportunity to own a 1988.5 vintage of the Ford Escort in the best trim possible, the GT.

This one is in mint condition with only 28,000 miles on the clock and well maintained. As this is a GT model it’s powered by the 1.9 liter 4 cylinder engine mated to a 5 speed manual transmission. It includes lots of options including front and rear spoilers, fog lights, tinted windows, air conditioning, cruise control, and an AM/FM/cassette stereo.

This Escort has spent most of it’s life in California, Nevada and Florida. It has been well serviced with lots of records and comes with a clean title. Current auction price is $13,000 and the auction can be found here.
