In the early 1970's I drove a "Q" car (civilian) vehicle in Northern Ireland; in those early days of "The Troubles", Q cars were just military utility vehicles given a quick respray. Mine was this model of Ford Escort, but the estate version, painted canary yellow. The inner door posts were still army green, and on opening the bonnet, the cylinder head had "OMD 110" clearly stencilled on it, indicating the engine oil to be used was "Oil, Mineral, Detergent 110". As far as I am aware, only the MOD used this type of oil. All very amateurish, but it did improve in later years.

Did the earlier ones have round headlights? I want a Mk1, if you know anyone feeling particularly charitable, lol.
