The 'Fast Fords' of the 1960s and 1970s won themselves a following when new which is just as strong today. First, in 1963, came the exciting but problematical Lotus-Cortina, much improved in its Mk2 version. With this still in production Ford shoehorned a Lotus-Cortina engine into the new Escort and launched the Escort Twin-Cam, father of the racebred Ford-Cosworth 16-valve RS1600 and RS1800 and the Mexico and RS2000 models. In the meantime heavier metal was also being produced. The first V6 Capri was the 3000 of 1969, followed by the lightweight RS2600, the rare RS3100, the MkII and III 3000s, and the 2.8 Injection. The effortless, almost indestructible big Capris have spoilt many owners for fussier machines.
