It's Not A Mustang II: 1985 Ford EXP

The Ford EXP was a slightly forgettable 2-seater version of the Ford Escort built in two generations from 1982-85 and 1985.5-1988.5.  It was Ford's attempt to built a sporty 2-seat version of their bread-n-butter Escort economy sedan, à la Honda's CRX from the Civic.  The EXP was lower, longer and sportier than the Escort, but somehow gained an additional 200 lbs in the first generation making for abysmal acceleration.  Ford continued development and by the end of the 2nd generation, power was up, sportiness was well contained and the EXP was discontinued because Ford launched the Probe...which also did not replace the Ford Mustang with its front-wheel-drive platform. Find this 1985 Ford EXP offered for $3,500 in Middleton, WI via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!

  1. I rented one for a couple of months in 1982 when I was TDY to upstate New York. Interesting little car - thankfully it had a 5-speed, as the acceleration was horrible. Hopefully the turbo helped some with that. Looks like somebody's going to find out as the ad has already been pulled.

    1. could be true. 1st gen escorts stock rubber were 13 inch wheels and 80 profile tires. only rubber made in that size now are for utility trailers. here's hoping the exp has a more sporting wheel tire combo. if not, hey... collectible.
