Question

Does anyone know what vehicle is pictured here on the cover of this 1984 brochure?

I think it was a Ford EXP. Remember those? They were a neatly styled car with the Escort's drive train. Mercury had a counterpart called the LN7.

Later (1986?) the Escort/EXP was created. It was that ugly looking little inbred thing.

Believe it or not, there is actually an enthusiast's web site. Here's a pic of an '84 from that site. The front grill on the car on the brochure looks like a match to me.

EWWWWW! So, from what I can see, the pic on the brochure is the best looking part of the car. It looks like something Ford had left over from the days of the 74-75 stangs.

Their styling had to grow on you I guess.
A friend's wife owned a 1982 EXP (very similar), and the color was like bile green.
All was fine until it threw the timing belt, and bent some valves.

Around 1986 they made it look even worse when they restyled it using the 1986 Escort front end. The little inbred Escort/EXP came to life!

With those big headlights protruding from the hood, all the green EXPs looked like Kermit the frog. LOL!
