Escort Mk2 Australian 4 Door RS2000

Recommended Posts

 

I have a 4 door Original RS2000. Obviously I know It will never make the money a 2 door car in the same condition would.

But Its in great condition, never been welded. Full MOT.

Shell is mint.

Recent Aldridge Recaro seat re-trim. Polished RS Alloys just been refurbished, new Pirelli Tyres.20191230_103911.thumb.jpg.07d91f4bf04fccfa50f9bd7f9cdadcf5.jpg20191230_112322.thumb.jpg.7a5a6058e6e0ee879ca7c03b1b85d41e.jpg1270883322_20191230_1040041.thumb.jpg.d3b7c1a0cfd94550a4293e2986fabe1d.jpg

Engine completely standard. as is the whole car.

Drives like an RS should.

Looking for 17k If it where a 2 door it would be 30k all day long.

Just gauging reaction before it goes to auction.

Welsh/Monmouth border.

Come and have a look.

Thanks for the positive comments,

Selling because storage is limited and I have too many cars stored at the moment.

Its a shame but storage local to me is in very short supply.

If anybody would like any specific pics please ask.

Also, forgot to mention car is UK registered in my name.

Other things I forgot to mention:

Car has been converted for unleaded fuel.

No speaker holes in doors.

Original radio

New radiator

New battery

New standard exhaust

Drives better than any Mk2 I have ever owned or driven.

There was a white 4-door RS for sale down London way about 5 years ago. A few messages were sent and received but I wasn't convinced enough to go on a 500ish mile round trip to go and view it. Looked much like yours....in a very good, original, standard condition. 11k it was then. Not seen it since.

Good luck with the sale m8 👍

I know of the white car you refer to.

I also was in contact and did take a look at it.

Unfortunately it had been re-shelled and with so few 4 door RS's made it wasnt done with the strengthened RS shell, so value suffered.

Body tags not present either.

Shame because it looked really good in the flesh.

Without the two aluminium compliance plates though an Australian car is worthless. You cant buy replacements and simply re-stamp them.

This nice car now about to go up for Auction. I would have expected a much higher value than that listed as you wont find a better 4 door RS out there on the open market. Will be interested to see how much it fetches.

Yep, Its goin to auction.

I have sold a few through Silverstone Auctions and they have all gone above estimate, one went 30k over so we will see.

As the saying goes ''the market will find the true value'' I am a bit twitchy though. Would be sad to see it go for lower estimate. Hopefully it gets bought by sopmeone who really appreciates it and uses it.

Its such a good car, no rust and never been welded in its life.

New interior, new tyres, re-furbished Alloys.

Why am I selling it? Even I dont know but will be looking for a project to replace it.

Wish me luck.
