1972 Ford Escort MK1 RS 1600 Rally car SOLD

Border Reivers are delighted to be offering the ex-minilite Ford Escort  RS 1600 from 1972
The Early History of the car is a bit of a sketchy, what we do know is that it was campaign in the East South Africa Rally by Minilights a couple of times.
The company that done the wiring harness said it was always a rally car and had done the East Africa Safari Rally several times before however they remembered the car  in red ?

PIAA Lights all so confirmed that they made a batch of 4 sets of Aluminium light weight spot lights for rally cars entering the Africa rally in fact they asked to buy back the lights as they are the only set they know of that exist.
This Escort has been owned by my client who resides in Monaco since 2014,He has entered the Last 5 Monte Carlo Historique Rally gaining a top 20 place this year 2019. The car has done the last 8 Monte Carlo Rallys.
