 Ford produced 10,352 Mexicos at their 'Advanced Vehicle Operations' (A.V.O.) facility in Aveley, Essex, between late 1970 and early 1975. It utilised the heavy-duty Type 49 bodyshell of the Boreham-built works rally car but substituted their powerful, complex, and expensive engine with the simple, reliable 'Kent' unit. The Mexico was named in tribute to Ford's win on the 1970 London to Mexico World Cup Rally with an Escort of that specification. Few have survived in original condition because many were used for motorsport however, the custodian of the immaculate car modelled, Emma Balaam (Secretary of the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs), believes it's never been comprehensively restored or seriously damaged; a rare survivor.
