A superb and very rare Ford Fiesta RS1800 with just 40567 miles. With just 4 previous owners and a good service history, these cars are getting very difficult to find. This is a completely standard example and one that has not been messed with or modified in way...it is just as Ford intended.
It is thought that Ford only ever produced between 500 and 700 examples of the Fiesta RS1800 and it is thought that there are only around 120 of these cars left, which surely makes them a very wise investment for the near future...what other sporting Ford can you purchase for this sort of money, let alone one that wears the RS badge?
First registered by Stormont Ford of Tunbridge Wells on the 31st May 1994, this superb little RS is finished in stunning Caymen Blue metallic with Mistral winged sports seats.
Still wearing all of its original factory fitted panels, the panel fit is linear straight and the car sits very nicely. The Caymen Blue paintwork is in very good order and still boasts a very deep and uniform shine. The car has had some paintwork in the past, however this has been done to a very nice standard and the car does look really well. All the glass and lights are in very nice condition, as are all the rubbers. All the glass is original fit and etched with the VIN number.
The completely standard interior is in very, very nice condition throughout. The seats are still nice and tight, the drivers seat bolster showing only a very minimal amount of wear, however this is very slight and we are being picky. The carpets, dashboard, door cards, headlining etc are very nice and damage free. The original Ford 2006 RDS Audio System is still in place and in perfect working order. The electric front windows and central, double locking are again in perfect working order.
Wheels and Tyres:
The standard fit 5/split spoke alloy wheels are in excellent condition, with only the odd slight marks being visible. All the tyres are in excellent condition and still have plenty of tread remaining.
Engine and Gearbox:
Fitted with the 1.8i 16v Zetec engine and producing 130 BHP, this little Fiesta is more than lively enough. It reminds us very much of the much loved 205 1.9 GTi...with strong and instant throttle response. Having covered just 40567 miles and fully serviced throughout its life, the engine is in very good health. The 5 speed gearbox is very smooth and precise and makes driving this little RS a pleasure. The Cam belt was replaced on the 17th June 2014 at 39464 miles.
The stamped service booklet is present along with the complete owners hand book wallet. There are a host of old MOT certificates along with various bills and receipts for works carried out throughout its life. The original Ford RS1800 sales brochure is also present. The car is complete with current V5, 3 keys and a current MOT until the 5th August 2016.
