Vintage 1982 Ford Escort Wagons
Escort Wagon came on the scene a year ago, and promptly became America’s favorite wagon.*
Maybe that’s because it’s the only American-built wagon with both the traction of front-wheel drive, and the smoothness of four-wheel independent suspension. Or maybe because of the great job it does in carrying, commuting and loading.
With the rear seat up, Escort Wagon offers 28 cubic feet of usable cargo room, and a color-keyed cargo cover to conceal your valuables.
With the rear seat down, Escort’s already considerable volume nearly doubles, to 57.8 square feet…
The ’83 Ford Escort Wagon
A good thing gets even better. For two years running, Escort Wagon has outsold every wagon in America. Foreign or domestic.’ It also has 58.4 cubic feet of cargo volume with the rear seat down.
But since there’s always room for improvement, we’ve added over 90 new improvements, ranging from a new luxury sound insulation package to a new fuel-conscious shift indicator light.
A wagon for braggin’. Escort is the only American-made wagon with both front-wheel drive and four-wheel independent suspension. And Escort’s unique CVH engine also gives you efficiency worth bragging about.
