Ford Escort XR3i Caspian Blue
The Ford Escort XR3i belonged to the third generation of the Escort car made by Ford Europe and the XR3i was developed as a sporting rival to the contemporary VW Golf GTI. The eighties witnessed the Mk III Escort as the most common type of car on British roads with almost one and a half million at the end of the decade. Its highly desirable offshoot, the XR3i benefited from an upgraded suspension and cosmetic modifications and came complete with fuel injection.
Registered OGT 539Y from 1982/83, this two-door saloon is decorated in an attractive blue colour scheme with black trim to aerofoil, bumpers, window surrounds and radiator grille. The contrasting interior is moulded in deep grey. In real life, the XR3i was a particular hit with the younger male drivers.
