Ford Del Rey
The Ford Del Rey is a midsized car produced by the Ford Motor Company in Brazil from 1981 to 1991. It was a remake from the popular Ford Corcel II. Like the Ford Corcel II, the Del Rey was designed exclusively for Brazil, but was sold in Chile, Venezuela, Uruguay and Paraguay as well. The first Ford Corcel was the Brazilian version of the Renault 12, being developed by Willys do Brasil, acquired by Ford do Brasil in 1967. Then Ford remodelated the Willys' prototype (that's why Ford Corcel doesn't look like the other R12 sold around the world), launching the Ford Corcel in 1968.
It was produced as a two-door coupe, four-door sedan or as a three-door station wagon. The vehicle was offered in many models, being Prata(silver) and Ouro(gold) the basic and topline versions between 1981 and 84 and L/GL/GLX and Ghia the variant versions from basic to the top between 1985 and 91. It ran on two engines(1.6L and a VW-shared 1.8L), both 4-cylinder with gasoline or ethanol. The transmissions were a standard 5-speed manual and a 3-speed automatic. The Del Rey was replaced by the Ford Versailles in 1991, which was based on the Volkswagen Santana, in an association between Ford and VW called Autolatina.
