A tremendous Mk2 Ford Escort RS2000 X Series in striking condition.

Build Specification Overview; Group One engine assembly including twin Weber 44IDF carburettors, WR40 camshaft and high-efficiency radiator, Type-9 Ford 5 speed gearbox with single prop shaft, Wilwood Racing calipers, rear brake disc conversion, GRP4 rubber roller type top mounts, MSA/FIA homologated Safety Devices bolt-in roll cage, Spax adjustable suspension, Rally Design alloy fuel tank, twin Facet electric fuel pumps, battery cut-off switch.
The exterior of this Ford Escort RS2000 X-Pack is imposing. Finished in Diamond White it has a deep gloss shine which is a pleasure to polish and admire. The ‘droop-snoot’ incorporating the large chin spoiler and ‘Zakspeed’ wing extensions are immaculate and give the car a purposeful squat stance. The small Ford logo is proudly moulded into each of the boxy square arched extensions with the correct sealed-up mock cooling slots. A few minor stress marks are barely visible and close inspection will reveal nothing more than some minor imperfections. Genuine Cibie quartz halogen headlamps are fitted and all rubbers, trim and glass are in excellent condition. The underside is in body colour and clean. Perfect and discreet Series X decals fail to mask the Rallye Sport competition motorsport looks. Raw, useable and great fun.
The interior of this RS2000 is an exhilarating place to be. The twin reclining Recaro sports front seats are finished in Black Beta Plus Fabric trim unique to this model and are supportive with no damage. Invoices from East Kent Trim Supplies reveals why the interior has a new feel with the headlining being tight and the original padded dash top and rear parcel shelf are unmarked. The original door cards have speakers fitted and along with the carpeting are clean and unworn. The signature five dial RS dash has the correct white needles and 120mph speedo. The Smiths clock works as does the heater fan on both settings. An MSA/FIA homologated Safety Devices bolt-in roll cage is fitted along with Sparco harnesses and two fire extinguishers. An amazing sense of occasion and a real drivers car.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The 1993cc belt-driven single overhead camshaft Pinto engine has had a wealth of performance enhancements including the Series X Twin Weber 44IDF carburettors and a free-flowing exhaust system. The combination of the induction note and bark from the exhaust is every enthusiasts dream! The factory quoted performance figures of 108.2mph top speed and 0-60 in 8.5 seconds will be improved from this 145bhp engine. A very clean engine bay is an added bonus. The Type-9 Ford 5-speed gearbox allows maximum use of the power and operates with precision.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Genuine and highly sought after Ford RS 7.5 X 13 alloy wheels finished in Stratos Silver are shod in 215/50 R13 tyres. The boot mounted spare is also a RS 7.5 X 13 alloy item and all have the H7SEB-1007AA part number within a spoke. A much improved braking system combines Wilwood callipers up front which grip vented, drilled and grooved discs and a rear brake disc conversion has also been carried out. All hoses are braided and a rear bias valve is fitted.
First registered on the 19th April 1978 this Ford Escort Mk2 RS2000 enjoyed the X Series treatment available through the network of Rallye Sport Dealers. It was possible to spend a great deal of money on X-Pack accessories to help differentiate the car visually and improve handling and performance. This car has many of those desirable features. Early photos of the car exist along with a comprehensive collection of restoration photos revealing the works undertaken to restore this iconic Ford legend. The previous owner, Mr Erratt, of 14 years invested much time, dedication and money witnessed by the numerous invoices and KGF Classic Cars were honoured to be contacted by the family upon Mr Errat’s untimely passing to find a caring owner. Sold in 2017 to Mr Clutterbuck we were delighted to welcome the car back due to the current owners relocation and look forward to welcoming the next appreciative custodian and Blue Oval fan.
