Fully restored Works Ford Escort MK1 RS1600 with racing history in new condition!

This original factory Escort is equipped with the famous 1600 BDA engine with HART valve cover and original Weber 45 carburettors which delivers an output of approximately 215-235 hp. Because the factory was not yet ready in 1970, the first 260 MK1's RS1600 were built in the Twin Cam factory, making them extra special and, above all, scarce.

This RS1600 is fully rally / race prepared and equipped with a safety device roll cage, Tony Law exhaust manifold, Works throttle mechanism, Gartrac Pedalbox, Dry sump oil system, Dual fuel tank, pumps and battery, modified cooling and gearbox, reinforced front suspension with modified steering gear, 15 '' Revolution rims, Atlas quad rear axle + Proflex shock absorbers, AP stainless steel braking system and various other extras. The body is also fully welded.

The original dashboard is still in a beautiful condition with the correct patina, furthermore the interior has been modified with new Cobra "bucket seats", electrically tensionable three-point seat belts and QCP hydraulic handbrake.

Only a few test kilometers from restoration to check everything for function. No expense has been spared to make this original Works Escort RS1600 a perfect rally car again, this has been done with a lot of knowledge and an eye for detail.

RAC rally logbook is available, as well as documentation and photos.

We can also arrange the export documents for you. Possibly with insurance for 2 weeks is also possible!
