Genuine Escort RS1800 road car, one of only 103 ever made. Fully restored 10 years ago but never used.

Some history with the car, old MOT’s dating back to 1984, some receipts etc. The car has its original Ford VIN / chassis plate which it left the factory with in 1977, matching engine numbers, original RS1800 gearbox etc. which proves continuation of history and not a made up cloned car

When the car was restored in 2008 it was obvious the shell was well past safe repair, the owner was unsure what to do as he didn't want a car riddled with rust stuck together with plates of metal, weld and body filler, then while deliberating what to do by chance he came across a New-old stock Ford service shell. The decision was made to use the new service shell as Ford intended (hence the reason why Ford sold them), to replace damaged or rusty shell. Again receipts to prove.

The engine was sent away to John Wilcox engines for rebuild, the trim/seats was refurbished, no stone was left unturned …the owner spent a fortune making the car the best it could be.

Fitted with period upgraded items such as Bilstein suspension, an LSD, mild cams in the engine etc all go to help enhance the driving experience.

Simply Stunning car, very rare to find an RS1800 on the market for sale, not to mention in this condition.

Serious inquiries only please.
