Seller's Description

Escort Rs Turbo Series 1985 Custom RegA rare purchase opportunity for my Series Rs Turbo Custom. Personally owned since 2002 to present.
A HUGE history file dedicated to the car from new to present. Original service schedule book stamped up, and pretty much every single receipt from ford dealer you can imagine, every single MOT from New etc etc etc!I purchased this as completely standard car back in 2002, initially used as an every day car and over period of time it’s has been restored, built/progressed into its current specification.
Current spec And details below....

Exterior :- Single wiper conversion Passenger de lock Aero bonnet catches lower carbon rear body kit spatsAll original bronze glass etched with its original reg. 

Obviously massive spec build Rs Turbo and no expense spared on this car what so ever. By no means standard car in its current form but have built her with the aim to still keep certain original parts and retained as much of the original look as possible. Its not full stripped out racer but just built like best modified version possible. No cheep or tacky parts used. Everything has cost £1000s Part of personal collection for the last 15 years
Over the last years have mainly used this car to show and shine and to light Track day few times year.
Not used on the road since 2012, but as stated below will come with 12 months MOT and will be ready for road use.
It has always been dry stored in controlled temp workshop and fully prepped and detailed to high standard after every show or outing.
I have not used the car for the last years, just looked at it and cherished it :) 
Most of the equipment on the car is in as new condition and for instance the turbocharger has just been renewed and seen half days work or less and at cost of £1200.00 alone, as said no expense spared!
This car is ready for fast road, Track or classic hill climb.
Will come with 12 months MOT and it retains all equipment for roadworthyness car. 
Can be put back to standard “ISH” spec with little work :)) all standard electrics and most interior is still in the car.
The sale will also include select set of spares and trim and some of the trim is also included if you wish to build the interior back up but no standard seats unfortunately as sold them last year.
Please note this is reluctant sale and viewing or potential buyers by strict appointment only. I would also add That if enough interest would consider breaking the car into its major components, for example...complete rolling shell partially stripped with documents, complete engine setup, complete fuel system, complete running gear etc etc, would not strip and sell individual components. I would need plenty of interest in stuff first. 

There are many time waters out there that spoil it for the dedicated few, WILL NOT stand for any unwanted hassle or time wasting. Stupid offers or ridiculous part exchanges will simply be ignored, No test pilots or tyre kickers, strictly viewing by prior appointment.
For any further information or for serious potential buyers please contact, will look through eBay messages but replying to all will be restricted due to time and availability (I will know if someone is serious....)No overseas buyers,  no scams, no “I will give you £250 deposit now mate and collect it next decade” This will be straight personal cash or bank transfer sale. 
No vat to be added. 
Very close Serious offers will be considered but please take into consideration the fixed price auction value. would also consider part exchange but it would need to be something worth while and would need considerable amount of the asking price upfront before the part ex.
Thanks for taking the time to look.
