I've had two Sports in the dim and distant past. One was an M reg diamond white example with 'Tinilite' wheels (those steel Minilite lookalikes Ford fit on everything back then) and the other, my first, was a yellow pre-production K reg car with 5J steel wheels and chrome hub caps (a-la Anglia). It had the type 49 bodyshell and the instrument panel was standard Escort but it had a small rev counter fitted on top of the dash by the A-pillar. I wish I still had that one but, sadly, it is no more!
