Selling on behalf of a customer this very original 1980 Ford Escort RS 2000 Custom. It showing 82000 miles and has had 8 previous owners. We have the V5 but not much else in the way of history. The car was in storage from from 2008 till late 2023. It was sent to Escort Specialist GS Classic Fords for a full mechanical recommission and is currently MOTD and ready to go. Original dealer plates and window sticker.

Body - Genuine RS shell with all the right brackets. Looks very original underneath with evidence of only a couple of very minor repairs. Original spare wheel well, sills. Good solid shell. Paintwork is perfectly useable but there are a few age related marks here and there is a bit of minor bubbling on the very bottoms of the sills. If you wanted a minter youd need to paint it but personally id leave it as it is, polish it and redo the decals.. Has had a period glass sunroof fitted and extra Yale door locks, which have probably saved the car a few times over the years. Good nosecone and bumpers. Correct door mirrors.

Mechanics - Has been given a recent overhaul after being pulled out of storage. Full engine service including timing belt,. The following items were replaced - coil, front TCAs, TREs, Calipers , pads, discs, brake lines, shoes, shocks, flexis, rear U bolts, propshaft, radiator hoses, fan, handbrake cable, It starts, runs and drives very well and way better than some of the more expensive ones Ive driven.

Interior - Looks like original seats which are in god order for their age. Door cards have had speakers fitted. Good headlining and carpet.

Wheels - Original polished .4 spokes with good tyres.

Despite everyone telling me the market is dropping I think these cars are continuing to rise a little. Anything under 25k either buys you a project or a lhd one. This car has had a lot of the hard work already done and is perfectly useable as it is. If you wanted to take the car to the next level then at least you known the mechanical side is already done. You are more than welcome to come and view it. We have ramp so you can look underneath. Delivery can be arranged if required. Please ask for a quote.

Any questions please ask or call 07879 557668
