A SALE WAS RECENTLY AGREED AND A DEPOSIT TAKEN. THE BUYER SUBSEQUENTLY DECIDED IT WASN'T FOR HIM.
THEREFORE. RELISTED AGAIN!!!!!
You are looking at my Ford RS200 kit car replica.
Worth well in excess of 20k when finished to a good standard.
Mid mounted Cosworth engine mated to a Renault UN1 transaxle (RWD)
According to road test reports from back in the day & people I have spoken with. these cars drive & handle incredibly well. with a highly developed & well screwed together feel. The gearbox will happily handle 380BHP making for lively performance with figures of sub 5 secs 0-60mph & 155+mph top speed.
This particular car is a Mercury Motorsport example. It was originally built approx 15 years ago & has stayed with it's original owner until summer 2012. It was fully road legal & used for occasional track day sessions.
As can be seen in the pics. a strip down has begun in order to carry out a cosmetic restoration. Looking around the body. the fibreglass panels although intact. nbsp;there's a few scuffs & chips which will need addressing. The chassis is solid and rot free. however. the powdercoat is looking a little tired. Paintwork will be required throughout. The pictures of the white car is one of these in a completed & running state.
It's essentially complete. with the exception of windscreen. (3door Sierra item) exhaust system & interior. There are three big boxes full of bits & bobs including many small items such as wire meshing from the air intake/ducts etc etc. Nice straightforward project if you know your way around a vehicle.
The engine is standard I believe & allegedly ran well before the strip down commenced.
Was registered in Ireland from new. I have spoken with my local DVLA office. They confirmed that it will go onto a UK 1997 P reg & NOT a Q plate!! Fee is approx. £80 once up & running with an MOT. Irish registration document states "Ford RS200 Kit Car Replica" This should stay with the car upon UK registration. which is a nice touch!!
Brief spec includes the following
Sierra Cosworth 2WD engine which I seem to recall being standard-ish.
Large roof mounted intercooler
Renault UN1 transaxle. rebuilt.
Escort Cosworth wheels. (Brand new split rim RS200 EVO2 Speedline replicas can be sourced)
Leda adjustable coilover suspension. all rebuilt.
Full spaceframe chassis with integral roll cage.
Brand new items now included in the sale are as follows.
Full RS200 replica dashboard which will require trimming + gauges. switches + vents etc. Bunny Ears. Hydraulic clutch slave cylinder. Rear screen rubber seal. Rally type bonnet pod to house four spotlights.
These Mercury Motorsport replicas come with the rear clam hinged from the rear of the car. This is a major component which in my opinion totally ruins the car. This example now has the clam hinged from the roof just like a genuine RS200. You'd struggle to tell the difference between these hinges & those on a real RS200. I've also started to make a new spare wheel cradle. again very similar to a genuine car. A small amount of fabrication work is still required to finish both of these areas.
A basic car loom is with the car. Full Cosworth car wiring loom is also included. Neither of which are much use. I have sourced a company who can manufacturer a full bespoke car loom for a reasonable fee if required.
Please be 100% clear. this is a project. albeit a fairly straightforward one if you are competent. A fair amount of input will be required. It will not be finished over a couple of weekends!!!
Any sensible questions. feel free to ask.
No P/ex's. May end early. Sensible offers over & above the start price will be considered. Offers below the starting price will not get a response.
Please no timewasters or idiots!!!
£500 non refundable deposit via paypal required within 12 hours of auction ending. Balance to be payed preferably via wired bank transfer.
Anyone with 10 or less feedback please contact me before bidding. If you fail to do so. your bid will be removed!
