Lot 138 – Ford Escort RS Cosworth ” One registered owner” 1993
Estimated Value : £24,000 – £26,000
This totally original and un-molested example of a RS Cosworth Escort was last taxed for road use back in 2008. This car has only had one registered keeper from new!
No the car is not mint there are some areas of very slight corrosion beginning to show through. The decision was taken not to attend to these as best to allow potential buyers to see exactly how minor they are.
The interior has survived very well. Being a “Lux” pack it has the leather trim. The front seats need some minor attention, a good feed of the leather where it has started to dry, the rears look unused.
After standing so long you will have to recommission it prior to use but we can report that it runs and drives, displays good oil pressure (there does seem to be a minor oil leak evident if left for a couple of days which should be investigated further before use, nothing dramatic but worth a mention).
A rare car indeed and one with a fully stamped service history book in its original Ford wallet.!
