2001 Ford Escort 75TD van, project. Registration number Y91 LCP. Chassis number WFOVXXBBAV1J88146. Engine number 1J88146. In 1998, Ford announced an all-new car, the Focus, which replaced the Escort and superseded the "Escort" name that had been in use for 30 years. The Escort range was cut down to just "Flight" and "Finesse" editions, and sold for a further two years in parallel with the Focus. The van variant remained in production in a facility located behind the now Jaguar plant at Halewood until 2002 when the new Transit Connect model was introduced. Escort-based light vans had been offered since 1968, although the market sector, always larger in the UK than in continental Europe, dated back beyond the 1950s when successive Ford Anglias had been available with a van variant. LCP has been off the road since 2018 when its last MOT expired at some 225,000 miles. It is offered for spares or repair. Once a common sight on our roads these vans are becoming scare now. Sold with the V5C, it will need to be trailered as the engine will not start.
