    • Did you not sell this to someone in Bedford?
    • They may pay that figure but it absolutely isn't worth that, even with all the bells and whistles.  It's a simple 4 pot 16 valve belt driven twin cam for God's sake. Profiteering on parts prices is what drives that cost up.
    • Strange that you should post this as i'm presently trying to remake the whole loom and as my RS came with intermittent wipe switch and the red relay i'm trying to make it work. As none of the euro spec wiring diagrams show the relay or its wiring one of our Aussie chums posted an aussie diagram which does show it but there are significant colour differences in wire colours which makes life tricky! And yes I to, took the relay apart last week and yes there are too many electrical bits in there t0 follow so bought a new one - less than £6.00! Following Ford wire diagrams is a right pain though and i'm sure they were made with wire scraps they change colours mid loom so often LOL!
    • Yes the BDA engines seem to have started to fetch a premium the past few years. We have had discussions regarding the values of UK and Australian Twincams on here and at that time the value of Twincams was higher than that of RS1600s but since then the value of RS1600s has surged ahead while Twincams have virtually stagnated. In the UK this year a UK Twincam fetched 40,000 pounds and an Australian Twincam fetched 34,000 pounds. Another really good example of a British Twincam is about to come up for Auction and its estimate is also around 40,000 pounds. This price has synched with Australian Twincam price highs, within the last few years. The record paid for an Australian Twincam was the equivalent of 41,000 pounds in 2017 which was surpassed in 2018 with a sale at 44,000 pounds. These RS1600s have virtually doubled in price in a short period of time. This was the record holder for an Australian Twincam in 2017 at 73,000 Australian Dollars, now surpassed. (It was the 16th Twincam I have driven, I have kept a long for decades LOL Brakes were shocking given it was the most valuable Escort in the country at that time! Now that title is held by the Yellow RS1600 above.)  
    • If you were using all Oe parts don’t think you would be far away from the asking price with paying someone to do it. I know of a Cortina  mk3 near me using all ford panels and majority of stuff been done came out at 50k
