It’s going to be an Escort-shaped summer at the shows, as Ford’s now-iconic model celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2018.

Naturally, the Classic Ford Show isn’t going to ignore this important milestone, and Classic Ford is putting together a special 30-car display to mark the original Mk1 variant’s birthday on Sunday, June 3.

From early 1968 standard Deluxe saloons (like the above example photographed on the model’s launch in Morocco, February 1968) to genuine, ex-works competition examples, plus some of the more-infamous examples that have appeared in the pages of Classic Ford magazine over the years, if you love the first-generation Escort, you’re in for a treat.

If you own a special Mk1 Escort and want to take part in the Escort 50th anniversary display at the Classic Ford Show, then drop us an email to
