1980 Ford Escort Mk. II RS2000
Reg. no. SAG 998W
This Nordic blue example has covered approximately 84,000 miles from new and has plenty of interesting history and papers including a \'Harris\' receipt for engine work at a cost of £6,500. The car is fitted with a brand new 2.1 fully forged Harris pinto on 45 webbers giving 188bhp and 173ftlb torque. The straight cut type 9 gearbox was recently rebuilt as has the LSD plated rear differential with new bearings and a brand new single piece propshaft. This RS2000 is shod in 7J minilites in anthracite grey with maxxis tyres and we are advised that the bodywork is in lovely condition. A straight through exhaust with sports back box gives a very good noise!
The car is also fitted with Willwood four pot brake calipers and has drilled and grooved discs which we are told are almost brand new; the four-linked rear axle is by repute very sturdy wih no play. Our vendor aptly describes this fabulous example as \'an absolute animal off the mark up to 70mph.\' The interior is still in lovely condition, retaining the original beta; they require a little adjustment but nothing major!
