FORD ESCORT MK1 RS1600 CUSTOMAdvert ID: 43094 To Be Auctioned
The Escort 'RS1600' was developed using an engine that was essentially a detuned Formula 3 unit designated BDA and was built at the Ford Advanced Vehicle Operations (AVO) facility

Meticulously restored car with its original shell to an incredible show condition
Current owner is an avid collector of rare and immaculate Fords
Accompanied by plenty of invoices for parts and labour, as well as a copy of the original buff log-book. The car is recorded on the RS1600 Register
