Ford Escort RS 2000 Mk2
Finding a Ford Escort that can wear the legendary RS logo is becoming increasingly difficult these days. An original in the Netherlands delivered RS, and even an unrestored one, is nearly impossible. But sometimes small miracles happen and therefore we can offer a very real RS 2000 MK2! Unique in its kind.
Delivered in 1977 and still in the possession of the second owner for more than 15 years. A racing and rally enthusiastic family, where the father was the man behind the steering wheel and kept an eye on the technique, while the son took care of the navigation during the events. Not that many rallys were driven, but competing in a few nice tours or regularity events was their hobby during the season. Being bullitproof and the in fact simple technology of the Ford was proven by every time they finished without any problem. Pure enjoyment, and no worries about whether the car will have problems or not.
This Ford Escort RS 2000 Mk2 is in perfect condition as far as its technology is concerned, and a fresh MOT without comments is being carried out recently. The body is very solid and has never been welded. The paintwork is also mainly original. A few spots and scratches have been slightly repaired or painted but that only emphasizes the originality of the car. Pure and used. For those who want everything like new, it might be a idea to repaint the bodywork, but that is up to the new owner.
The car has the following specifications in addition to the regular RS2000 specifications: FIVA identity card for international regularity competitions, Burton flowed cylinder head, high performance exhaust manifold, twin Weber 44 carburetors, pedalbox, short steering rack, front brake discs with bigger calipers, special leaf springs rear, deep dish steering wheel, Koni yellow front schockabsorbers, Mini Lite wheels 7 × 13, (original ATS RS rims on M + S tires available), aluminum 60 liter petrol tank, rollbar, Retrotrip Twinmaster, Cibie
Extra supplied: RS wheels with mud and snow tires, original RS steering wheel, rear seat and backrest, original petrol tank, original front struts, original belts, extra set of headlights, searchlight, front brake pads, 2 doors including upholstery and windows.
We are dealing here with an exceptionally original RS 2000 which, with its approximately 150 hp 2.0 liter engine, is a great asset for those who want to compete in tours and rallys. Both the experienced equipe and the new ones in this nice sport, can soon appreciate the qualities of this piece of Ford Motorsport.
