Ken Block in Mk2 Ford Escort

Here is another Ken Block video from the states, this time a historic outing in a 2.0 litre Cosworth powered MkII Escort.

The rally cars were highly specialised machines. Bodyshells were heavily strengthened.

The BDA engine was bored to 2.0 L and gave up to 270 bhp (201 kW; 274 PS) by 1979. It was complemented by a strengthened transmission, five-speed straight-cut ZF gearbox, five-linked suspension and a host of more minor modifications. In this form, the Escort was perhaps not the most sophisticated of the rear-drive saloon cars that dominated rallying in the late 1970s.
