If you are a classic car enthusiast and have a particular interest in the Ford Escort then you might want to get along to the Silverstone Auctions that takes place at the NEC Classic Motor Show Sale 2017 between 10th to 12 November. There are a number of Ford Escorts being offered for sale but there is one in particular that may attract a great deal of attention.
A 1980 Ford Escort Mk2 RS2000 Custom with the registration number PAU 208W is to be auctioned and has an estimated price of £80,000 to £90,000. However, this car has only got 927 miles on the clock and is in immaculate condition. In fact, if you were to sit in the car, it has that new car smell. This is incredible considering its age.
It is in Diamond White and has upholstery in chocolate brown. The car has only had three owners and was at one point kept in an air chamber.
This particular model was capable of getting from 0 to 60 mph in a mere 8.5 seconds and could reach a top speed of 108 mph. The RS 2000 Custom model came with certain extras including centre console, clock, remote driver’s door mirror, fishnet Recaro seats and a carpet in the boot.
This is a tremendous opportunity for a Ford car enthusiast to purchase an exquisite example of this particular model. Who knows when such an opportunity may arise again.
If the above doesn’t appeal then take a look at the Silverstone Auctions website and you will see many other examples of Ford Escort classic cars. For instance, there is a 1972 Ford Escort RS1600 that has been restored to an extremely high standard. It is in Le Mans green. It has an estimated price of £45,000 to £55,000.
How about a 1989 Ford Escort XR3i Cabriolet that has only done 10,995 miles. It has a 1,597cc engine and a 5 speed manual gearbox that could almost get to a speed of 120 mph. The paintwork is in Aquafoam Metallic. It has only had the one owner who has maintained it in excellent condition.
So, why not get along to the NEC and take a look at some remarkable classic Ford cars as well as many other makes and models.
