Ford Escort Mk4 XR3i Cabriolet (1988) – Enthusiast Wanted

Perhaps the enthusiast can tear it off and hide the holes on the trunk lid by sticking a spoiler over it that was once in Ford’s catalog. Enough about that disfiguring thing. The rest of the XR3i Cabriolet can charm us. For example, the mileage of 128,000 kilometers. The term virginal certainly does not apply to this, but we are confident that this classic convertible has always been well cared for, perhaps even an indoor sleeper. The provider does not mention that, who shares little information anyway. The company is asking 7,950 euros for it. Via the AutoWeek registration check we see that the XR3i Cabrio has been driving in the Netherlands since 1996. So well established. First Escort Cabriolet not yet as XR3i What about the Escort Cabriolet again? A Cabriolet of the first front-wheel drive Escort appeared in 1984. It already had the engine of the Golf GTI counterpart XR3 (the i found out when that version got injection) and you could choose between 1984 and 1985 with the Mk3 from the version with carburetor and with injection. With the Mk4, Ford also put on the Cabrioletkont XR3i, although there was also a 1.6i Ghia. The 105 hp 1.6 of the XR3i allows the convertible, weighing only 1,000 kilos, to accelerate from 0 to 100 in just over 10 seconds. Eighties In the eighties there were convertible versions of various compact middle class cars. For example of the Volkswagen Golf and the Opel Kadett. The latter also had a GSi, a direct counterpart to this Escort Mk4 XR3i Cabriolet. The Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet was still based on the Golf I, even though the Golf II appeared in 1983 but it was never officially delivered as a convertible. In the 1990s, the range of affordable convertibles would only grow, reaching its absolute peak in the 2000s. In the period 2005 to 2010, almost every hatchback in the compact class and the compact middle class was an open variant. The fabric hood had already made way for a steel folding roof.
