Classic Car Auctions says:

Multiple award-winning RS that's almost 'Showroom Fresh'...


  • This fabulous Mk1 Escort RS2000 was built at Ford's Aveley plant during November 1974
  • It remains superbly finished in Diamond White with Blue decals and Rallye Sport wheels
  • The interior is completely correct with Charcoal Grey cloth RS seats and the flat 3-spoke wheel
  • The 1993cc, 100bhp, 4-cylinder, SOHC Ford Pinto carries a number that matches the chassis
  • Fully restored in 1997, using an already good example, with the focus on originality and quality
  • Post-restoration, competed on the Concours circuit for 3-years with notable success (see below)
  • In heated storage from 2000 until now and only selling to fund new projects
  • JIA is very highly regarded amongst RS owners who can be a little picky when it comes to detail
  • If Ford chose to build a batch of 'Continuation' RS2000s, they would probably look like this
