Be a bit careful here - I know with the Lotus Cortina MK1 several panels were aluminium - not sure if the did that with the Escort twin cam.
I cant see why the body would be different - apart from the aformentioned engine size. I'd be surprised if they sold em over here, but I'm a pom and I'm 27 so I know fa really.Why do you ask?
My dad used to rally a mk1 Cortina GT, then mk2 Lotus and knows shitloads about Fords of that era - if youve got specifics I can pass em on.
