1972 Ford Escort RS1600

Price: £114,995 Mileage: 40

This is a rare opportunity to purchase an ex-works Escort which has had a full nut and rebuild by leading specialists Motoscope and is now presented in absolutely pristine rally ready condition.

RWC 456K was a works RS1600 driven in period by Makinen, Mikkola and Cowan. It also won the Ypres 12hr in the hands of Staepelaere and Aerts.  The history of the car is very well documented and is accompanied by a collection of period photographs.

Less than 50 road miles have been covered since the completion of Motoscope’s comprehensive rebuild. The build quality and specification is outstanding, and combines FIA homologated components with high tech instrumentation and camera systems:

  • FIA specification 2.0 litre Alan Sherwood BDA, producing 250 BHP
  • Direct top ZF box
  • ZF LSD with 4.6 CWP
  • AP twin plate clutch
  • Steel sump pan
  • Alloy radiator
  • FIA bag tank
  • Tony Law exhaust with ceramic coated manifold
  • Works spec semi  floating Atlas with alloy hubs
  • Watts linkage and short four link system
  • AP forest 4 pot front callipers, AP 4 pot twin callipers on rear
  • Gartrac billet front struts   
  • Steel bubble arched shell
  • Alloy door skins
  • Alloy bonnet and boot lid
  • Toyo R888s on Minilites
  • Motorsport loom
  • 6 Piaa spot lights
  • Full Racelogic camera system
  • Stack instrumentation
  • Peltor intercom
  • Twin tripmaster system
  • Lifeline plumbed in and hand held extinguishers
  • Full safety equipment

Everything on the car is brand new or rebuilt, and the shell has been immaculately repainted by Normandale Refinishing. The spares package includes steel bonnet and boot lids, 7 sets of brand new Minilites and 6 unused Dunlop tyres.
