Registered new on the 16th November 1973 as a humble Escort 1100L, this car led an unassuming life throughout the 1970’s, 80’s and 90’s, and it was into the millennium that the cars transformation was undertaken in the hands of eclectic classic car collector, Robert McMillon. Having searched extensively for a Mk1 RS2000, Robert became disheartened with many non-genuine examples masquerading as genuine AVO cars and the few genuine examples he could find were in such poor order. This led Robert to make the decision to build his own RS2000 recreation, exacting to his own specification and standard. The car as it stands today is a testament to his dedication, skill and knowledge and represents everything that the original Mk1 RS2000 stands for at a fraction of the price! A superb achievement, huge fun and highly usable.

Presented in perfect order, the fully adjustable and supportive Recaro seats show no wear to the Daytona Raven fabric, (Code SW).  The carpets are pristine having been protected from new by two sets of quality floor mats, and the door cards are spotless with none of the common sun damage to the inner door handles, virtually unheard of for an Escort Mk4!  All switches, knobs and dials operate correctly and the Ford Self-Seek stereo radio/cassette with speaker directional control remains fitted and operational.  The boot area is immaculate with original build stickers to the floor and a straight uncut parcel shelf.  A outstanding 1980’s RS Ford interior.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The 1.6 OHC (CVH) fuel injected engine with a Garrett AiResearch T3 turbo charger and intercooler produces 132bhp at 5750rpm and 180Nm of torque at 2750rpm.  In a car weighing just 1325kg, this featherweight contender completes the 0-60 dash in 8.2 seconds and a top speed of 128mph is achieved.  An immaculate engine bay allows bonnet up exhibiting with factory panel stamps, wing stamps and all plates and stickers intact.  The owner used strictly Ford Motorcraft service items only, a standard upheld throughout.  The 5-speed manual Ford BC box is light and precise with crisp clutch action.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The unmistakable RS Turbo light alloy 6X15 RS wheels remain in pristine order with Ford logo and part number stampings clearly prominent.  Matching quality Pirelli Cinturato C1 195/50 R15 tyres, fitted brand new in 2017, are virtually unused and the spare is the original Dunlop SP Sport D40 item.  This fast Ford RS legend stops as well as it goes with the ABS braking system designed in conjunction with Lucus Girling working perfectly.

HISTORY FILE
Built in October 1986, this very early Series 2 was registered new on 9th January 1987, the supplying Ford Main Dealer being E Ward of Wellingborough.  The first and only keeper, Mr David McGann, registered the car to his business name, David McGann Motor Spares and Accessories Ltd, before transferring ownership to his private name upon retirement.  KGF Classic Cars purchased the car direct from Mr McGann, and learnt from him that it was used in the initial years to attend business meetings for the starting up of the association that was later to become A1 Motor Stores.  Thereafter, the car was used solely for leisure use whilst always kept in his heated and dehumidified garage alongside his 1969 Cortina 1600E which he has, and still does, own since 1971!   His dedication and love for this RS Turbo was simply wonderful and truly infectious, even down to the use of wine bottle corks used to lift the wiper arms off the windscreen so as to preserve the rubber blades!  Furthermore, Mr McGann, a qualified Ford Motor Vehicle Engineer, kept a detailed maintenance log since new and throughout, after the first service at E Ward did not meet his expectations, (complaint letter in the history file!),  causing him to handle vehicle upkeep himself from then on.
The original E Ward document holder contains all vehicle handbooks, guides and dealership literature as well as the service book and a workshop manual.  Previous MOT certificates date back to 1991 along with vehicle invoices and even tax discs since 1987.  Completing the history file is the original blue V5 document, RS Turbo sales brochure, supplying dealer tax disc holder and spare key with dealer fob.  KGF Classic Cars are privileged to both have met Mr McGann and present this amazing example to the market, ready for the next dedicated custodian to enjoy.

Ford Fiesta MK3 1.4 Ghia

SORRY NOW SOLD – SIMILAR WANTED

A delivery mileage Ford Fiesta Mk3 1.4 Ghia with an incredible 137 miles!

EQUIPMENT
Polycarbonate bumpers with bright insert, grey paint treatment below mouldings, halogen headlights, laminated windscreen, tinted glass, tilt/removable sunroof, locking fuel filler, anti-burst locks, two spoke soft feel steering wheel, tailgate wash/wipe, heated rear window, remote door mirrors, central door locking, remote tailgate release, electric front windows, digital clock, centre console, Ford self-seek model 2006 stereo cassette, tachometer, courtesy light, load compartment light.  Dealer options; Ford tailored rubber mats, mud flaps.

EXTERIOR
With an astonishing and genuine 137 miles from new, this example is most likely to be the lowest mileage in existence!  To suggest that this example is as new is a bold statement, but one which is wholly justified with this perfect Fiesta.  Perhaps most impressive is the underside which has been preserved in a time warp condition, with all orange PDI markings to the suspension components, yellow paint dots to the springs and factory stickers still intact, all features usually destroyed within the first few hundred miles.  In factory original Moondust Silver, (Code 6 2), the paintwork to all factory panels is 100% original and virtually as new aside from a few marks to the bonnet when in storage. The trim sections are perfect and supplying Ford dealer number plates, boot badge and tax disc holder remain fitted.  This example is simply as it left the Perrys Ford showroom in 1992, with absolutely nothing painted, replaced or altered.  Truly a one-off museum piece.

INTERIOR
An interior entirely commensurate with a delivery mileage car!  The cabin space with Astral fabric trim, (Code L7), is simply as it sat in the showroom awaiting collection by the first owner, even down to the Perrys Ford paper mat!  This paper mat is slightly soiled.  Ford Rubber mats, as new themselves, have protected the plush non-woven velour Ghia carpets perfectly and all trim sections, controls and switchgear have the new car feel which is lost soon after regular use.  Unbelievably, even the green circular PDI sticker to the end of the wiper stalk is still intact!  All functions operate flawlessly including the Ford self-seek model 2006 stereo cassette.  Probably most nostalgia evoking of all is the new car smell that has been retained, instantly familiar as a Ford and ready to transport you back to a Ford showroom in 1992!  Totally originally and impossible to better.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The 1392cc CVH four cylinder engine featuring twin venture carburettor and automatic choke set up produces a lively 75bhp at 5600rpm.  A top speed of 102mph and 0-60 is achieved in 10.6 seconds, easily adequate for modern traffic conditions.  The pristine engine bay has original plates, fragile paper stickers and factory panel stampings clearly visible.  A Ford Motorcraft oil filter and the grey Ford HT Leads remain fitted, and all fluids are clean and clear.  A sticker in the engine bay confirms a cambelt change on 2nd February 2018 with one mile covered since! The engine is whisper quiet and the 5-speed manual gearbox feels brand new!

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The factory steel wheels of size 4½ x 13 are in perfect order with the original Ghia full wheel covers fitted and as new.  The factory fitted Pirelli P2000 165/65 R13 tyres obviously are amazing with no cracks and even the bobbles and coloured banding are still prominent.  The servo-assisted diagonally split brakes with 9½” discs up front and 7”drums at the rear are free and operate correctly.

HISTORY FILE
Registered new on the 29th January 1992 by Ford Main Dealers Perrys of North Finchley, this exceptional example was purchased by a Mr Oliver Addison Esq, with a sales invoice in the history file made out to him illustrating a price paid of £9,700 after a discount of £1300.84.  Sadly, just days after purchasing the car Mr Addison was diagnosed with serious illness and never drove the car again despite taxing the car every year until his passing in 1995.  Having covered just 136 miles the car was given to his daughter, Miss Judith Addison, who does not drive but could not bare to part with it so it subsequently went into her garage where it remained until January 2018.    Thankfully the garage also housed the homes boiler which helped to keep the car warm, dry and preserved perfectly as evident today.  The car has then been sold to a good friend of Miss Addison.  The history file contains the original blue and current V5 documents confirming ownership from Father to Daughter as well and the handbooks and a typed history from Miss Addison.

A highly collectable and desirable Ghia model Fiesta, effectively a brand new car and priced identically to the invoice price in 1992.
