Some conflicting plate info for N522 YCT - Ford Escort 1.6 16v LX 4dr Saloon Manual,Date of first registration 01/08/1995 (Autotrader), UNKNOWN, FORD FORD ESCORT CONVERTIBLE (Autotrader/Experian), but this seems fine - Ford Escort Si Cabrio (Convertible) (mycarcheck) and DVLA looks OK
✗ Untaxed Tax due: 01 April 2010
✗ No MOT Expired: 13 August 2010
Date of first registration :17 May 1996
Year of manufacture :1996
Cylinder capacity (cc) :1796cc
Vehicle status : Not taxed
Vehicle colour :RED

So a very late one as production ended in early 96. Not sure what the Sport badge means.

This 3rd brake light, which forced change of boot lid was extra option or was it some sort of really last (1996 MY alike) modification?
Interestingly facelifted, 1995+ Escort cabriolet could have 2 types of boot lids:
- 1st one with "Ford" badge in the middle (so like in all 1995+ Escorts): https://www.flickr.com/photos/austin7nut/4960444347
- 2nd one with this light like here and badge on the right

In case of other Escort cabrios we have sometimes cars with both types of boot lids listed as 1995:

Normal Escorts got CHMSL Aug 97. Glass's is confusing about Cabrios after 95 - probably reflecting Ford frequently chopping and changing trim names in this period. No mention of boot CHMSL on cabrio for any version. Si Cabrio stopped in March 96 (both engines - 1.8 115PS and 1.8 130PS). Seems replaced by Ghia cabrio in 2 versions - 1.6 90PS and 1.8 115PS. Plus there was the 1.6 90PS Calypso cabrio (introduced May 95, replacing previous sequence of May 93 Silhouette, Sept 93 Mistral*, June 94 Solar) which continued through 1996 changes until Jan 99 when it and both Ghia cabrios stopped. And that is just the UK sequence - other countries may differ .....

(* = no recorded Maserati connection, but an intriguing thought. Ditto the VW Bora ....)

So we'll have to wait for confirmation - I'm also unable to find anything on how it was with this light in convertibles.

Good info. about CHMSL added to normal ones in August 1997! I didn't notice this modification before (put in less visible place than in cabrios :D ).
