my chassis number reads this on the plate under the bonnet bbtgkr there is no A on the chassis plate but there is one on the log book. so this is how it should read bbatgkr can any body tell me if this is correct for a gt model as it doesnt say gt just says escort on the log book

The R stands for GT mate look in a haynes manual it shows you how to tell there but from my memory it is the last letter of the code so yes you have a GT :thumbsup:

bbatgkr

 

B- Ford of GB

 

B - Assembly plant halewood

 

AT - 2 door saloon

 

But after that it looks a little odd as the chassis number should be 6 letters followed be a vehicle specific number, you've quoted 7 letters.

 

Do you have the kind of VIN plate on the bottom left or right of the pic below? I'm guessing bottom left from the info you've supplied.

 

The box marked version identifies what model it is (or at least what model the plate was off) The letter options that could be in it are as follows

 

S - Standard

D - Base

M - L

P - XL

Q - Sport

G - GT and Mexico

L - Twin cam, RS1600 and RS 2000
