This may very well be a once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire an absolutely incredible Ford Escort RS1600i. Having covered just 1,918 miles from new...yes, 1,918 miles, this concours winning car truly is unrepeatable!
The condition really is jaw dropping and cars of this calibre very seldom...if ever, come to the open market. If you could go back to 1983 and purchase a brand new RS1600i, then this would be it!
Supplied brand new by Henlys Ford of Newcastle on 31/08/1983, just tinted glass and electric aerial were requested as factory fitted options. It stayed in first ownership until 1997 and had never been mot'd . It had covered just 1,264 miles on it's very first mot in April 1997. Below are it's additional mot's.
- April 1997 with 1,264 miles
- April 1999 with 1,594 miles
- August 2002 with 1,888 miles
- October 2003 with 1,901 miles
- September 2005 with 1,912 miles
- June 2008 with 1,913 miles
- May 2013 with 1,914 miles
- June 2014 with 1,916 miles
- May 2017 with 1,917 miles
- May 2018 with 1,918 miles
SORN documentation is contained in the history file for the years in between the above dates.
With it's current mileage and breath taking condition, we feel that this example is pretty much un-useable now. It is purely an ornament to be showcased or the missing piece of a jigsaw puzzle in a very high end collection...
Any inspection is welcome and strongly encouraged to fully appreciate this truly exceptional and un-repeatable piece of Ford RS history.
