Gartrac G6 Escort

The G6 was devised by Gartrac as a road going spin off to the successful G3 & G4 rally & rally cross cars.

Most of the cars produced were rear wheel drive with a 2.8 V6 engine and a Capri / Atlas rear axle. The bodyshell was very similar to the rally car - the only real difference was the road car did not have four link suspension, it ran with an anti tramp bar set up.

Three cars were produced with 4WD; this employed the running gear, engine and gearbox from a 4x4 Sierra. Gartrac did also produce a few cabriolet versions. Around thirty G6's were produced in total, although many copies were produced around this period.

G6 Specification

The Gartrac G6 at the time had phenomenal acceleration and performance and married with unique looks and clever design features really stood out from the crowd. Both Dave & Bill had G6's as company cars back then and were forever being stopped by the police just so they could take a closer look at the car!
