Product Description

About the Author

Sporting Escorts have been a fixture in Dan Williamson's life for longer than he remembers. Early childhood spent sliding across the seats of his dad's GT-engined Mk1 instilled an anorak-level addiction to fast Fords. Like most Escort enthusiasts, his condition is incurable. Dan was given his first car aged 15, a 1972 Mk1 that's perhaps best described as a long-term project. It currently shares garage space with a '71 Mexico and a 1600 Sport. Dan trained as a newspaper reporter before deciding it's more fun to write about cars. He's been a motoring journalist since 1997, working for the UK's leading automotive publishers. Today he's a freelance contributor to a variety of magazines, including Fast Ford.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Mk1 Escort resource 27 Sep 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Can't really add much to the glowing reviews on here already - the book is superb. I've just ordered the Mk2 title on the strength of this one.

Brownie points to publishers Herridge & Sons who answered a query speedily, courteously and comprehensively before I purchased.

Just buy it.
