1973 Ford Escort RS2000 MKI – FIA HTP

·            FIA HTP – valid until 31.12.2025

·            Original Ford Netherlands rally entry (Tulpen Rally 1978 & Kempen Rally 1978)

·           Currently in use as a race car but can easily been converted into a rally car (all relevant spare parts are available)

·           “BDA-challenger” – Lap time on Spa-Francorchamps: 2:56.9

This Ford Escort RS2000 MKI is an original, Ford Netherlands rally car that participated in several rally’s in 1978, including the “Tulpen Rally”. The car has a valid Dutch registration certificate and number plates (15-ED-03) (currently suspended) and benefits from a FIA HTP that is valid until 31 December 2025. As such this would be an ideal car to participate in historic rally’s.

The last decade the car has not seen any rally stages but explored race tracks all over Europe instead. This car has proven to be one of the fastest For Escorts RS2000 around and on a good day even able to challenge Ford Escort BDA’s. With a lap time on Spa-Francorchamps of 2:56.9,  a place in the top-10 in most of the (FIA) historic fields is almost certainly guaranteed.

Short summary of relevant specifications:

·         Ford Pinto engine with 205 HP

·         Two double Weber 48 Carburetors

·         Dry sump lubrication system

·         Five-speed ZF gearbox

·         Twin paddle clutch

·         Atlas axle with Watts Linkage

The set-up of the car and its specifications allow for a conversion to a BDA set-up. All required engine components to build a 1700cc BDA (Lucas Injection) are available and can be negotiated separately (i.e. not included in the listed price).

Plenty of other spare parts are available (including wheels, gearbox (overdrive – suitable for rally), Cibie rally lights, 2.0l pinto engine, etc). To be negotiated separately (i.e. not included in the listed price).
