Hi Folks !

Right. testing the waters here to see whether I go a different route or not ! So here goes.

I have for auction my Escort MK2 RS2000 Custom ! She was first registered 1st June 1978 and exported to South Africa !

She was brought back to the UK in 2013 and registered on the 21st February that year. I have paperwork from the Sporting Escort Owners Club to say that she is indeed an RS2000 but the logbook just says escort but allegedly can be changed by a ford dealer.

Anyway. more about the car itself.

When I acquired her on 17th May 2013. she was taxed and tested and on the road. although I wouldn't have wanted to drive her too far !! Engine and gearbox were both very good though and the engine number matches the logbook and is believed to be the original engine. The plan was to totally restore her to pristine and a huge list of NOS parts were bought in anticipation. However. my thoughts and plans have changed so I am offering her for sale. with all the parts that I have worked on and bought.

When she arrived. she sat on my driveway for a day and then was taken inside the garage and stripped to the last nut and bolt ! The front seats were Capri items so were ditched. Carpets and roof lining were knackered so they are currently needed along with the two front seats. The windscreen was cracked so was also thrown away as were the knackered door cards and dash top. Apart from these things. the rest of the car is complete. including RS 4 spokes with tyres. all glass. rear seat in correct Beta Cloth and basically everything else !

The body itself does need some work. the worst being floors and sills but nothing too major. There had been a hole cut in the boot floor but a replacement boot floor comes with the car. Other new panels with the car are floor panels. rear arches. rear wing repair panels. spare wheel wells. front panel. rear panel. These are all new and have not been fitted apart from one floor panel. The inner wings and strut tops are all good as is the roof. bonnet. boot lid. bulkhead and most of the floors. The doors are present and decent but will need some work. The front wings would definitely go again but I would replace if completing. I have acquired another nose cone as the original was somewhat warped. Everything is there to get the body back to 1st class standard but it is not a weekends work. I have spent over £800 in panels !!! The shell currently sits on a spit and this will come with the sale !

In the meantime. I have had all the running gear powder coated in Satin Black. including front struts. roll bars. prop shaft. brake backing plates. cross member. leaf springs. hangers etc. These are all as new and ready to be fitted. The rear axle is just being completed by a specialist and will be the original axle with the addition of a LSD. This will return with all new bearings. drums. brakes etc and again. will be powder coated in satin black to match the rest. The powder coating and rear axle have cost me over £2500 !!

Aside from this. I have acquired many NOS and refurbished parts ready to go back on the car. Please see list below. This has cost me in excess of £3500 alone and includes NOS RS Steering Wheel in original box ( see pics )new dash top.  new door cards ( original ). parcel shelf cover. New Rear Bilstein Shockers. refurbished pedal box ( see picture ) NOS Master Cylinder. I also have every nut and bolt from the car and many new ones as well.

So. as you can see. I have already spent over £7K and that is without the car itself in the first place !!!!!! I know I am not going to get it all back but I also know what this is worth when done and I will complete it if it does not fetch what I believe is sensible money ! This will make a fantastic car when completed and most of the spend has already been done ! Most of this is just hard work now !

I will not break the car for parts nor sell any of the parts that come with the car.

No timewasters please !! The car is registered to me at the address that you can view everything but the shell ( this is in a friends garage and can still be viewed ) so along with my feedback. please bid with confidence !! You are bidding to buy. not come and tyre kick or barter later. Only bid if you have the funds ! £300 deposit at auction end and the rest in cash on collection !

Please telephone Steve on 07904561382 if you have any questions !!

Good Luck and happy bidding !!!
