I had what purported to be an Escort Mk I GT from 1973. I was travelling in New Zealand and bought it to go round North Island. It had been imported from the UK in 1986 (this was now 1990). It was orange and had alloy wheels. I was told it can't have been a GT as Escorts didn't come in that flavour. I don't know as I'm not a real car expert. It was a nice car though - had all the oil pressure/temp gauges and a straight through exhaust.
