Escort RS2000 CustomAdvert ID: 45529 To Be Auctioned
In 1979, an RS2000 Custom was an extremely aspirational purchase, with the distinctive polyurethane droop snoot front end and air dam, plus a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder, SOHC, 110bhp Pinto engine, offering 0-60mph in just 8.5 seconds and a top speed of 108mph
This example was originally supplied in the UK and spent some time in the Isle of Man, before forming part of a collection in the Republic of Ireland
Acquired by Richard and his team at ‘The Smallest Cog’ earlier this year for recommissioning, it was shown at The London Classic Car Show in its before state.
They have since set about preparing it for this sale and, at its appearance at the recent Hampton Court Concours D'Elegance, received many positive comments
It's currently on a NOVA allowing an application for a full UK registration
Restored to a remarkable standard and superbly presented in gleaming Midnight Blue, this is a serious opportunity for any Rallye Sport collector
Given that all things Fast Ford have seen a boom in interest in the last few years, and the association of Richard and the team at The Smallest Cog with the all-important TV Show to follow, this sensibly guided car is sure to create a stir in the room
The Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show may not have been able to go ahead this year as normal, and as we eagerly await its return in 2022, we are delighted to bring you the auction element this September.
Taking place on Saturday 25th September in Hall 1 at Stoneleigh Park (CV8 2LG) from 11am.
