An immaculate early Ford Escort RS Turbo Series 2 with just 35,256 miles.

EQUIPMENT
Body coloured bumpers with black insert, body coloured wheel arch extensions, tailgate spoiler, halogen headlamps, front driving lamps, cooling vents in bonnet, tinted glass, quartz digital clock, aerial incorporated in rear windscreen, Recaro front reclining seats, 60/40 split rear back rest, soft feel sports steering wheel, tachometer. Factory options; Quickclear heated front screen, fuel computer, heated/electrically adjustable door mirrors, electronic sound system ECU2 with power amplifier. Custom Pack; tilt/slide glass sunroof, electrically operated front windows, central locking. Dealer accessories; Mud flaps, tailored rubber floor mats, cassette storage.

EXTERIOR
This incredible early Series 2 example is finished in Ford Rosso Red, (Code R5), a colour used on the early examples prior to the switch to the more common Radiant Red. The paintwork displays an outstanding shine and uniform finish, a true credit to the dedicated ownership and verified low mileage. Close scrutineers will struggle to find anything more than the rear ford badge slightly tarnished and tiny age related marks, namely one to the nearside rear quarter. All factory panels are pin straight with uniform gaps and the trim sections, correct Carello/Ford lenses and RS decals are pristine and exactly as Ford intended. Originality seekers will be pleased to see the supplying Ford dealer number plates, rear screen sticker and factory etched glass. The eagle-eyed RS Turbo expert will note the black casing to the door mirrors, correct for a car with optional heated/electrically adjustable door mirrors. An unspoilt and preserved example, very difficult to better.

INTERIOR
High specification and presented in superb order, the interior features the early supportive Recaro seats showing no wear to the Daytona Raven fabric, (Code SW). The carpets are pristine having been protected from new by genuine rubber waffle floor mats, and the door cards are fully intact with only very light scratches to the inner door handles and some shrinkage to the armrests. There is a light scratch to the passenger door card. All switches, gauges and functions operate correctly including the factory optional electronic sound system ECU2 with power amplifier and fuel computer. The boot area is immaculate with original build stickers to the floor and a straight uncut parcel shelf. An outstanding 1980s RS Ford interior.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The 1.6 OHC (CVH) fuel injected engine with a Garrett AiResearch T3 turbo charger and intercooler produces 132bhp at 5750rpm and 180Nm of torque at 2750rpm. In a car weighing just 1325kg, this featherweight contender completes the 0-60 dash in 8.2 seconds and a top speed of 128mph is achieved. A fully detailed engine bay allows bonnet up exhibiting with factory panel stamps, wing stamps and all plates and stickers intact as well as the correct Ford B7028 grey HT leads. There is a touched in blemish to the slam panel. Genuine Ford Motorcraft service items have been used throughout, including the correct flat terminal Motorcraft battery. The 5-speed manual Ford BC box is light and precise with crisp clutch action.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The unmistakable RS Turbo light alloy 6X15 RS wheels are in pristine order with Ford logo and part number stampings clearly prominent. Matching quality Goodyear Efficient Grip 195/50 R15 tyres, including the spare, were fitted brand new all round in 2016 and are virtually unused. This fast Ford RS legend stops as well as it goes with the ABS braking system designed in conjunction with Lucas Girling working perfectly.

HISTORY FILE
Built in March 1987, this very early Series 2 Ford Escort RS Turbo was registered new on 28th April 1987, the supplying Ford Main Dealer being Raleigh Garage (Bideford) Ltd. The original Ford plastic wallet houses all vehicle handbooks, guides and dealership literature as well as the original stamped service book. The last service was August 2018 at 35,239 miles and the cambelt, tensioners and water pump were changed in 2016 at 34,298 miles. Previous MOT certificates date back to 1991 to further verify the mileage along with Ford main dealer invoices. Completing the history file is the original blue V5 document and two Ford keys. KGF Classic Cars are privileged to present this amazing example to the market, ready for the next dedicated custodian to enjoy.

MOT July 2020, HPI Clear.
