Details Specification Condition Report
  • First registered on 12/09/1979 this Escort RS2000 Mk2 has been with our vendor for 7 years

  • 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
