Ford Escort MkII RS2000 Custom

To Be Auctioned


Ford Escort MkII RS2000 Custom  – Some cars just ‘sit right’, and this low mileage, low ownership 1979 RS 2000 Custom appears ‘on the button’.

  • Launched in 1976, an RS2000 Custom was an extremely aspirational purchase, with the distinctive polyurethane ‘droop snoot’ front-end and air dam, a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder, SOHC, Pinto engine offering 0-60mph in just 8.5 seconds and a top speed of 108mph, these cars were rather special
  • In late 1978, the ‘Custom Pack’ became an option and included  ‘Fishnet’ Recaro seats, full door-cards, clock and pod centre console, 6J x 13″-alloys, boot carpet, remote drivers door mirror and the back panel around the rear lights was painted black
  • Finished in Venetian Red, this smart example has covered just 42,695 miles from new
  • It’s showing two former registered keepers on the V5 and will have a fresh MOT prior to the sale
  • The, possibly quite valuable, Registered Number, 895 F, will remain with the car
