Registration No: F976 JKN
Chassis No: WF0BXXGCABKJ55989
MOT: November 2023
Originally registered in April 1989, this Ford Escort RS Turbo boasts a rich ownership history, having changed hands five times since its inception, with the current owner taking possession in April 2018. Over the years, it has gracefully travelled approximately 97,500 miles and comes with an extensive collection of invoices, demonstrating consistent maintenance and care. The meticulously documented invoices reveal noteworthy servicing milestones. In 2000, at approximately 85,000 miles, the gearbox underwent a thorough overhaul. In 2010, a Turbo Technics turbocharger was expertly fitted, and a new front mount intercooler was introduced at some point.
Additional enhancements include a Mongoose stainless steel exhaust, Jamex shocks and lowering springs (resulting in a 25mm drop), an upgraded Airtec radiator with twin electric cooling fans, a CVH34 fast road camshaft, an oil cooler, a high torque starter motor, and a Clifford Concept 600 alarm/immobilizer system. In June 2018, with the odometer at 94,490 miles, the vehicle received a meticulous rolling road tune-up at Interpro Automotive in Bristol, delivering an impressive 157.8bhp and 175lb/ft of torque. This marked a significant increase from the factory specifications.
Comprehensive assessments affirmed the vehicle's sound condition, including the compression levels and fuelling system. Recently, a new set of Goodyear tires was thoughtfully installed. Furthermore, the car underwent an oil and filter change less than 500 miles ago, ensuring optimal performance. It continues to run smoothly and maintains an ideal operating temperature, thanks to the upgraded cooling system. A valid MOT is in place until November 2023, accompanied by only two advisories (a minor oil leak and a defective rear exhaust mounting). Preserving its original handbooks within the original wallet, this vehicle also includes a collection of 19 past MOT certificates. The growing demand for fast Fords in the collector's market makes this exceptionally well-preserved Escort RS Turbo a compelling opportunity at the reasonable guide price and maybe even a smart investment.
