Ford Escort Mk1 RS1600. This car was fairly recently restored by an ex Boreham Mechanic we are told. It starts runs and drives very very well and is probably one of the nicest driving Escorts around. Its meant to have been stored away for many years in a collection but we have no real evidence of that. The V5 is with the car which states RS1600 but we have no real history with it.

Body - Very tidy shell which is all body colour underneath. Has all the correct strengthening plates and chassis number is stamped on the struttop. Paintwork is nice as you would expect having been fairly recently restored. We have been in touch with the owners club and there are a few bits on the front end of the shell which are not the same as the green RS1600 we have here. This car has either been repaired with different panels or reshelled into a slightly earlier shell/ The bonnet stay should be on the inside of the bonnet for this year of car and the door latches are from a slightly earlier car. Overall a very good looking car. Car has a remote alarm / central locking fitted which all works.

Mechanics - Correct BDA engine but not the original one to the car. The engine in this one has been checked and was made a few months later than the car. Its been fully rebuilt, bored to 1700, cosworth pistons, steel farndon rods, steel crank, ported head, BD3 cams, 45 webers. It goes really well. As far as we can tell all the running gear is correct for an RS1600. Everything has either been replaced, rebuilt, refurbished.

Interior - 140 mph clocks. Good seats , doorcards, carpets, headlining. Very tidy car inside. Map light on dash.

Wheels - JBW Replica 6" RS style wheels with very good tyres.

Please feel free to come and see the car. We have a ramp so you can look underneath. More pictures or videos are available on request. Delivery can be arranged if required. Please ask for a quote
