Question I'm confused about my Escort

I own a 1989 Ford Escort LX, I did a background check on it and I don't know if mine was built in UK or Mexico or America?
I need help?

This might help a little bit.....
These are what the first 3 letters of your VIN mean, only got the Euro one's tho...

SFA = Ford Motor Company Ltd. (England)
TW2 = Ford Lutisania sarl (Portugal)
UNI = Henry Ford and Son Ltd. (Ireland)
VS6 = Ford Espana sa (Spain)
WF0 = Ford Werke A.G. (Germany)
WF1 = Ford Werke A.G. (Germany)
XLC = Ford Nederland nv (Netherlands)

There is a VIN decoder I found http://www.btinternet.com/~madmole/ only does Euro Fords though.

I don't have any of those letters on there. If anyone have a VIN numbers that comes from Mexico or America that would be appreciative.
