Here in the USA, the Ford Escort had a reputation for being a middling (at best) compact daily driver. Across the pond in Europe, however, that reputation was vastly different. You see, this little powerhouse was a well-respected rally racing legend that actually saw quite a bit of success on the track. And now a remarkably well-kept example, this 1973 RS 1600 is up for sale.

There’s a lot to be said about this little track titan, but let’s start with the performance specs — under the hood, there’s a 1.6L 4-cylinder engine good for an impressive 255 horsepower. That power is bolstered by this rally racer’s other equipment, which includes Bilstein shock absorbers, a quartet of disc brakes, reinforced AVO bodywork with a bolted-on roll bar, magnesium wheels, and a high-speed oil and water pump. With a vehicle as beautiful as this one, you might not want to take it out on the track, but it’s definitely nice to know that you could (and you probably should, as it promises to be a whole lot of fun). This one can be yours for $113,315.

Purchase: $113,315
