| Description

Ford launched the Mk3 Escort range in 1980 and with it a new performance car, the XR3, designed as a more comfortable fast Ford that would also capture the spirit, and market, of the previous RS cars. The example modelled was built in Saarlouis, Germany, and UK registered on January 19th 1981 by Ford dealer Days of Lowestoft for Mr P.L. Birman of Great Yarmouth. The second owner, Mr A.R. White, bought it from the same dealer in April 1983 and it then went to the Lowestoft-based Durrant family who acquired it in December 1988 and kept it until April 2009 when current owner, Carlisle-based Martin Stothart, bought it and a trailer for £1000.

The Escort Club

Another cracking Escort from Corgi. I had to reorganise the cabinet to make room for this and a few more Preorder buys. The colour is perfect. I agree with Andrew a real gem.

80s Fast Ford gets a thumbs-up

I was hesitant to buy this one as I already had in my collection a 1/43 XR3 in this colour from Vitesse, but when I saw this one on the hobby shop shelf I couldn't resist. The model I received was well assembled, with all parts neatly fitted and aligned. The paint was smooth with crisp masking between the yellow and black. So no post-purchase regrets over this "duplicate", it's a great addition to my collection.
