Escort Cosworth. (New pics added!!!)

I've traveled to Scotland to help my Dad do some work in his garage in his new house where we store a concours condition Escort Cosworth. We had to take the car out of the garage for a day and a half whilst we worked inside (putting it back in before it got dark and frosty in the evening) so before tucking the car back up for winter we had to give it a maintenance wash and dry. I only took a couple of pictures as it was bloody cold and we had to work quickly together as the water was freezing around us. The car was dried and put away in the garage, undcover, where it will stay until April. As I say I didn't take many pics and they were on my phone so aren't great quality but thought I'd share what I took.

A stunning example in a rare color, never seen many in red during it's heyday.

Am I right in saying because this has the later style badges at the rear, it's the small turbo with the plastic engine cover?

Stunning btw

Yes, not many would have picked up on the badges so that's impressive knowledge! The easiest way to tell is the door mirrors went from a bigger, boxier look to rounder, sleeker ones and the fuel filler changed from something you removed with the key to a flap. There's no hard and fast rule though as when Karmen made the car for Ford they changed over the parts when they ran out of what they had so there are some big turbo she with small turbo badges, door mirrors etc.

It's pretty much all my Dad to be fair. He has done most of the work for the last 17 years that we have had it. I just help out for a couple of days when I'm up visiting. My detailing addiction comes from him.
