"New" Ford Escort - clariman
Not that new, but i saw an X registered one today - X48 *** - that must be a record similar to the "new" Maestros (A) mentioned on an earlier thread.

If you think that's new, I saw a '51' plate Ford Escort estate back in August while my car was in for work at a Ford main agent.

I thought that it was so odd that I even mentioned it to the service receptionist who didn't seem to think it was anything out of the ordinary.

I've also seen a '51' plate MK2 Mondeo which also looked odd.

I know some people buy a very late example of a discontinued model and tuck it away to be registered at a later date - I've personally seen a B-prefix MGB roadster and an N-prefix Mk2 Golf GTI. Surprised that there would be someone doing this with an Escort though! I've personally seen a V-reg car, but they still did the van until recently I think...

If i'm reading this right, Dagenham Motors have 2002 '02' plate Ford Escort Finesse run out models for sale.

I think I'd be buying a car supermarket Focus for that money!

I actually worked at a dealership where previously a Triumph Stag sat in the showroom from 1977 to 1984.

Consequently an 'A' reg car was registered and Austin Rover honoured the 12 months warranty.

I have seen the car since in concours competitions.

Ford did actually continue production of the Escort for a good few years after the Focus came out (not sure exactly how long) so they're not all run-out models...

Ford continued to build the Escort until September 2001.

Therefore it is quite possible to see for 51 reg cars and vans to be around. I have seen some BT and Royal Mail Escort vans about on 51 plates.

Charles is right. They produced both the flight and finesse models towards the end. The flight had a few extras over base, but the finesse was fully loaded (for an escort) with toys as the main run out model.

Escort vans only went out of production in 2002. Saw a load of white ones being disposed of at Blackbushe a few weeks back on "02" plates in a Bank of Scotland sale.

Stacks of X plates about where I am, have't seen many Y plates, and have never seen a 51 plate, but I wouldn't be really suprised if I did.
