The Mk1 Ford Escort was introduced in Ireland and the United Kingdom at the end of 1967, making its show debut at the Brussels Motor Show in January 1968. The Escort had conventional rear-wheel drive and a four-speed manual gearbox, or three-speed automatic transmission. The suspension consisted of MacPherson strut front suspension and a simple live axle mounted on leaf springs. The Escort was the first small Ford to use rack-and-pinion steering. The Mk1 featured contemporary styling cues in tune with its time: a subtle Detroit-inspired "Coke bottle" waistline and the "dogbone" shaped front grille – arguably the car's main stylistic feature.

Supplied new by Burns Garage of Congleton to a lady from Kidsgrove, Staffordshire, with the original January 1975 sales invoice on file, ‘HDM’ was first delivered to its first owner on 11th January, 1975, with a number of factory and dealer fit options. This striking Mk1 is offered in an original and unmodified state and we are told it has been ‘garaged all its life’. With just two Stoke on Trent owners from new and in its current ownership since 2012, the Escort has only clocked-up some 2,300 miles since 1996, with the current displayed mileage being a credible c.19,800 miles. The factory-fitted options and fitted by Ford, included the automatic gearbox, Metallic paint, a vinyl roof, fabric trim and a radio. Before delivery to the first owner, the approved dealer fitted extras fitted, included cavity underseal, two wing mirrors, four mud flaps and two spotlights.

Literature with the Mk1 includes the owner’s manual, original Ford service guide, owner’s handbook, original radio instruction manual, original sales brochure and a Haynes manual. In 2012 the Escort was the subject of maintenance work in 2012 and a reconditioned steering rack and track rod ends in 2017. In addition, the Escort has also benefitted from a new rear window seal. Offered with a collection of old invoices, old MOTs dating back to 1996 at 16,639 miles, some old tax discs, an original sales receipt and other paperwork, the car is said to start and run well. It is accompanied by a current V5C.
