History:
Originally supplied by Sanderson Ford on the 9th of February 1996.

This example still has the original Ford binder with all original booklets present.

Unlike many low mileage cars, which tend to cover the mileage in the first year or so in all weather conditions, and are then stored away years later only to resurface later in life – this car was used very rarely with very low miles being covered in the early part of the vehicles life – obviously only in perfect weather conditions.

Also within the history file are various old invoices, and MOT’s, along with Escort Cosworth literature and all original keys still retaining the tags.


Body & Paintwork:
Absolutely beautiful!

We have had the car fully detailed, including a machine polish and the car looks better than new.
A beautiful gloss finish in present on the Imperial blue paintwork with a fantastic reflection, and none of the usual swirls and cleaning marks, or indeed storage marks that are so common on such vehicles.

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 sticker.

All wheels are in perfect 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.
You could go as far as saying the seats, and interior in general is like new.

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.


Engine:
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.

The engine bay itself, as you would fully expect looks superb and factory fresh.


Running Gear:
As with the rest of the vehicle, all running gear is in fantastic order.

The underside of this car is simply beautiful, and clearly demonstrates the love and care that has been shown to this car. See the video of the underside on our youtube channel.

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.

A truly superb example ready to be added to a collection.
