Footnotes

  • There are few cars out there with a Rally pedigree that is as successful and famous as the Ford Escort's. The MKII in particular was no exception to this, and the RS2000 was known for popularising the RS (Rallye Sport) brand and further demonstrating how Ford could develop an impressive rally car for the road. Launched in January 1976, the RS2000 featured a 2.0-litre single-overhead cam Pinto engine and quickly became popular with keen drivers. Today, the styling of the RS2000 is still very distinctive with its famous quad headlamps and slanted 'droop snoot' front end. This 1979 car is a very good example with an unbroken registered keeper history from its original dealer (Blakes of Liverpool). A folder full of repair and upgrade bills are also included with the sale (there is also a list of modifications and Rolling Road report available on request). Externally, the bodywork is in a very good condition having undergone a full nut and bolt restoration in 2003 (photographic evidence taken at all stages) , whilst the interior retains its "Custom" trim it has been upgraded to provide a safe environment for the more spirited driver. Due to its condition the car has participated in The RS Owners Club Concours for 4 years and is also pictured in the club magazine 'Rallye News'. The engine is tuned to a high degree and whilst it is still a "Pinto" it has an Omex Engine Management ECU fitted along with a Jenvey Fuel Injection system and at a recent rolling road session it produced 190 BHP. This is a very good example of an extremely useable and enjoyable classic Ford.

    The vendor has offered to help and advise any new owner to enable them to enjoy this RS as much as he has over the past 20 years.
