Roaring onto the UK car market in 1968, the Escort was a departure for Ford; the modern styling and mechanics boosted its appeal to the British public, so much so that it became the best selling UK car in the Sixties. No doubt its adaptability aided its success – the model range was equally suited to young bright things as it was to families wanting reliability and value for money from their motor car. The fourth generation arrived in 1986 and within that series was offered the ‘RS’ model. The 1986 – 1990 Series 2 RS was equipped with a Garret T3 turbo water cooled 1597cc engine that could achieve a top speed of 125mph. Within the Escort family, the RS has certainly become a cult classic, gaining a loyal following with those who prefer their transportation to be something of a statement.
This modern classic Escort RS Turbo Series 2 represents excellent value when one considers the high prices asked and apparently achieved for such models in today’s market. This example appears to be solid and rust-free and the interior is tidy. The Recaro seats add to the whole sporting ambience and with its 1600 turbo engine, the Escort has plenty of power to match its rather fabulous Eighties styling.
The history file includes a vast quantity of invoices, numerous MOT test certificates, old road tax discs and the V5C registration certificate.
