The Escort 'RS1600' was developed using an engine that was essentially a detuned Formula 3 unit designated BDA and was built at the Ford Advanced Vehicle Operations (AVO) facility

As well as higher performance engines and sports suspension, these models featured strengthened Type 49 body shells, making them ideal for rallying

Only 1,137 RS1600s were ever produced, so are now very collectable

Previously owned by marque expert and proprietor of ASM Restorations, Andrew Stapley

Meticulously restored car with its original shell to an incredible show condition

Current owner is an avid collector of rare and immaculate Fords

Accompanied by plenty of invoices for parts and labour, as well as a copy of the original buff log-book. The car is recorded on the RS1600 Register

Full details and different images to follow soon.....

Estimate: £58,000 - £68,000

+buyer's premium of 15% including VAT @ 20%
