Stunning Ford Escort RS2000
96,000 miles
MOT - July 2017
2 x keys

This RS2000 was first registered in February 1979 and, although originally Beige, the car is now finished in the much more attractive colour of gloss black with a black interior, following a full bodywork restoration in 2007.The shell was completely stripped, and rebuilt, as was the suspension.
More recently the drive train has benefitted from similar refurbishment with the engine being rebuilt and breathed on to improve performance and drivability. These modifications include a big valve, gas flowed head and a fast road/race camshaft bringing it to 138BHP. A five-speed, 'Type 9' gearbox has been fitted with a quick-shift to further improve performance.

The engine is still being run in due to all the recent work that has been carried out.

Brand new Yokohama tyres all round.

The interior has not been left out having been completely re-trimmed by a specialist. The carpets have also been replaced with new items to complete a really fresh look.

The results are very impressive and the car looks as good today as it would have done tearing around in the 70s and 80s. Supplied with a good history file documenting its restoration and other past maintenance, this is one of the nicest RS2000s we have seen for quite some time.

This quick Ford has been rebuilt with driving in mind and the driving experience is better for it. The car drives as good, if not better then the day it left the factory.

You will be hard pushed to find another in better condition. The car really needs to be seen to be appreciated.
