SUMMARY

A superb example of these sought-after Fords, fastidiously restored to a Concours standard.

DESCRIPTION

  • First registered on 12/09/1979 this Escort RS2000 Mk2 has been with our vendor for 7 years 
  • It has covered some 77,000 miles from new and is resplendent in Signal Yellow
  • Our modest vendor restored the car himself and is obviously a man of exceptional talent. He writes "The car was restored by myself apart the paintwork, the engine was fully rebuilt, 4-speed Type E gearbox, standard rear axle (3.54-1), brakes all refurbished (new brake shoes, wheel cylinders etc.), all the suspension refurbished with new bushes and joints and painted, interior has been re-trimmed with Aldridge Beta cloth, all new window seals rubbers, new windscreen, original glass apart from one 1/4 glass, fitted with genuine Ford front fog lamps, car is mainly original panels apart from both door skins and 1 front wing"
  • As you can see the result is truly spectacular. It has won a Trophy in every Concours event into which it has been entered and has been magazine featured in Retro Ford Magazine (August '21) and paid the ultimate accolade of appearing on the cover
  • It's accompanied by copies of old V5s, old MOTs, all old invoices and paper work, and photos of the work carried out by our vendor
  • These models are currently topical with values seeming to rise weekly and this jewel-like little RS will surely provide its new owner with enjoyment for years to come
