Introduced in June 1967, the RS2000 MkI, which was destined to be the last model to be built at Ford's legendary AVO (Advanced Vehicle Operations), was based around the same strengthened Type 49 monocoque bodyshell as its predecessor. The newcomer boasted equally predictable/entertaining handling thanks to the provision of Macpherson strut independent front suspension, a leaf-sprung 'live' rear axle, servo-assisted disc/drum brakes and rack and pinion steering. The RS2000 was powered by Ford's new 1993cc SOHC four-cylinder 'Pinto' engine, which developed some 100bhp and 108lbft of torque.
Offered here is an exceptional, authentic RS2000 Mk1 that has been meticulously restored to its original Daytona Yellow colour. These cars have become increasingly rare, and finding one in this unmodified, eye-catching condition is nearly impossible. This RS2000 has undergone only sensible, non-cosmetic modifications. Some engine components, the drive shaft, rear axle, front and rear suspension, among others, have been powder-coated. Additionally, a poly bush kit has been installed, giving the car a firm and stable feel on the road, making it drive lvery well despite its four-decade history. Under the bonnet, you'll find the stock matching numbers Pinto 2.0 engine paired with dual carburettors, all of which were standard for the RS2000. The braking system is also in its original form and is more than capable of handling modern driving demands. This RS2000 features the original Cibie spot and fog lights, securely mounted on RS brackets. Inside, the interior boasts the correct RS roll-top seats, expertly reupholstered in the original patterned fabric. The original RS2000 centre console is currently in place for display purposes, and as a result, the radio and clock have not been wired in. This decision was made to avoid cutting a hole for the antenna, leaving it up to the next owner's preference. If desired, the console can be easily removed to accommodate any customizations. A very special car which should certainly get the heart racing of any true Fast Ford fan.
