|Ad Type||For Sale|
Only 11,973 miles from new, and an Aero Delete model – this means the car was supplied new with no ‘whaletail’ spoiler, no hockey sticks, and no front lower splitter.
It is not known exactly how many of these cars were supplied new, but the figure is believed to be very low, making it a very rare piece of Ford RS history.
11k miles from new (warranted)
Ex Concours winning car
Original dealer literature and window sticker
Correct original tyres (no longer available)
All 4x original keys
All original booklets
Great MOT & Service history
Rare aero delete model
This 1995 Escort Cosworth was registered new to its first owner, Mr Findell on the 1st August 1995 by Radmore’s of Tavistock.
After being cherished by him for five years it was sold to the second owner by the same Ford Main Dealer on the 22nd May 2000 for £22,000 to the second keeper.
A vast history file accompanies this example.
The blue A5 Ford folder with Radmores of Tavistock sticker contain all original booklets, all of which are in excellent order.
As you would expect all four original keys are present including the red master key and working torch key. The plastic tag with the key number remains along with two Clifford remote units.
Original V5 and current V5 are within the file, along with various service check sheets/invoices. and various tax discs / sorn declarations.
Also in the file are 4 Concours logbooks, 01, 02, 03 and 04 – all for the ‘Standard’ Class, over these years it entered just five events, and coming away with 1x 1st place and 4x 2nd places.
The very low mileage can be warranted through the paperwork history and the service stamps, of which the details are listed below.
1999 – 7,224 miles
2000 – 8,347
2001 – 9,501
2003 – 10,427

1996 – 2,409

1999 – 7,224
2001 – 9,502 (Cambelt)

2015 – 11,971
The car will also have a cambelt service upon sale.
Body & Paintwork
Finished in Diamond white, this example looks superb.
Of course, all panels are original, as you would expect.
All exterior trim is in excellent order including the lights, badges and rubbers.
Original glass is still in place and all correct Ford window stickers remain intact including the Ford Security System and Dealer supplier rear window sticker.
The aerodynamic equipment was factory deleted making this a very rare car – this was an option when ordering an Escort Cosworth which removed the ‘whaletail’ spoiler and the hockey stick/lower front splitter, all of which helped reportedly increase the top speed by 4mph.
All wheels are in great condition and are the original Ford RS 8 X 16” five-spoke alloy wheels which are still sporting the original, no longer available 225/45 ZR16 Pirelli P Zero Asimmetrico tyres
Interior & Trim
Being a LUX optioned vehicle, the Recaro seats are finished in leather from factory and are in superb condition, still having the original ‘satin’ finish to the leather.
The rears look as though they have never been sat in!
Nothing has been changed within the cabin, the original steering wheel, gear knob, pedal rubbers are all still in place, and again in great condition as you would expect from such a low mileage example.
The standard Ford radio/cassette, Model 2007 RDS sound system remains as Ford intended and provides excellent sound through the original eight speakers.
Everything works just as it should do, including all gauges and switchgear.
The boot area looks as if it has never been used.
A period ‘Mult-T-Lock’ with two keys was Dealer fitted in July 1995 and a Clifford Concept 600 Thatcham Category 1 alarm in June 2000, both with supporting insurance approved certificates.
No introduction needed here…. the motorsport pedigree of the escort Cosworth is well known world wide!
With an impressive output of 217HP and 0-60 in 5.7 seconds, these cars still feel great even today.
This example is no exception, with fantastic performance on hand.
Turn the key, and the car starts without any hesitations at all.
No smoking either when on idle, on boost or indeed on overrun, and no tapping either when cold or warm.
Upon sale the car will have a cambelt service carried out, to give the new owner full piece of mind.
As with the rest of the vehicle, all running gear is in great order.
The original Ford RS 8 X 16” five-spoke alloy wheels are still fitted, and still have the original 225/45 ZR16 Pirelli P Zero Asimmetrico tyres – these are for display purposes only and whilst they are not damaged, we would recommend new tyres for use on the road due to the age.
The clutch and gearbox are a pleasure to use, and the brakes still perform well even by today’s standards.
On the road the suspension feels capable yet comfortable, and helps give good handling characteristics, with no unwanted noises.
A truly superb example ready to be either enjoyed or displayed.
