Ford Sierra RS500 Cosworth

SORRY NOW SOLD – SIMILAR WANTED

One of only 52 Moonstone Blue Ford Sierra RS500 Cosworth’s with just 19,945 miles.

MODEL HISTORY
The Sierra RS Cosworth project was defined in the spring of 1983 by the then recently appointed head of Ford Motorsport in Europe.  It was established that at the time, Ford was no longer competitive in this area.  After receiving full support from Ford Public Relations, the project was underway with the Sierra chosen as the basis for the project.  Ford Motorsport in Europe approached the automotive company Cosworth who answered positively, but put up two conditions:  The street version of the car had to produce no less than 204 HP, and Ford had to accept no less than 15,000 engines.  Few cars have ever been greeted with such enthusiasm as the original Sierra RS Cosworth, perhaps only the exclusive 500 cars that were developed to become an evolution edition, unbeatable on the track.  Aston Martin at Tickford were assigned with converting the 500 cars, which in 1987 were to be announced as the RS500.  Engineering differences aside, largely the cars were aesthetically similar to the standard Cosworth.  The main differences being the additional boot mounted spoiler, discrete badges and the revised front bumper to aid improved cooling.  This included the removal of the front fog lamps as standard, but with the dealerships offering reinstatement as an optional extra.

EQUIPMENT
Bodyside mouldings, integral front air dam, colour coded door mirrors, electrically adjustable and heated door mirrors, colour coded lockable fuel filler cap, bonnet cooling vents, halogen headlamps, colour coded bumpers, single plane rear wing spoiler with trailing edge fence, lower tailgate mounted spoiler, tinted glass all round, tailgate wash/wipe, laminated windscreen, central locking, extended centre console, cigar lighter, quartz digital clock, fascia light dimmer, leather gearknob, leather three spoke sports steering wheel, 3-speed heater fan , cassette storage, electronic sound system (model ECU2) with power amplifier, electric aerial, Recaro Sports front seats, split folding rear seats, tilt and slide sunroof, tachometer with turbo boost gauge, trip recorder, anti-locking brake system with failure warning light, electric front windows.  Dealer options; Headlamp protectors, Ford rubber mats.

EXTERIOR
The motorsport cued stylings of this RS Cosworth are utterly breath-taking and nothing short of simply magnificent.  Finished in optional Ford Moonstone Blue (code K6), the paintwork boasts a deep gloss shine and beautifully polished finish.  The car has no rust or corrosion whatsoever and only a small chip to the front offside wing is worthy of mention.  All exterior trim, rubbers, glass and lights remain free from damage, as have the all imperative RS500 badges and decals.  The front lower splitter has remained true to shape and the original Cibie headlamps are protected by plastic fitted covers.  A very clean underside displays original manufacturer stampings on various components.  A truly incredible car in astonishing preserved condition, the pinnacle RS500.

INTERIOR
The interior of this RS500 is simply beautiful.  Finished in Ford Roma Grey (code S2), the Recaro seats and carpeted door trim are in remarkable condition with no wear or discolouration.  The three spoke leather steering wheel and gear knob reflect the low mileage covered.  The carpets are spotless and have remained free from wear having been protected from new by genuine Ford rubber mats.  All dials and gauges operate perfectly including all electric warning lamps and the door open/bulb blown warning display.  The dashboard is superb having suffered no cracks or discolouration, with only four tiny drill holes to the lower passenger foot well where a 1980’s mobile phone speaker once lived!  A spotless boot area houses the original wooden wheel cover and an undamaged straight parcel shelf, impossible to source.  An incredible surviving 1980’s RS interior, truly astonishing.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The original RS Cosworth powerplant warrants little introduction.  Fitted with the standard 2.0 Dual Over Head Cam (DOHC) with the larger Garrett AiResearch T31/T04 turbocharger and intercooler, the motorsport pedigree of this car is unmistakable.  With an impressive output of 224HP allowing the car to accelerate smoothly through 0-60 in 6.2 seconds and reach a top speed of 153mph.  With manufacturer stickers and panel stamps displayed, the engine bay is incredible in its originality and condition, even down to the original material fuse box cover.  The correct engine and chassis identification numbers identify this as a true genuine RS500.  The gear changes are crisp, tight and precise, exactly as you would expect from such a low mileage cosseted example.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The factory fitted 15 X 7 inch RS Sierra Cosworth alloy wheels housed within the flared arches are in pristine unrestored condition, and are shod with the original ultra-low profile Dunlop D40 205/50 R15 tyres all round including the spare, with excellent tread remaining.  Diagonally split hydraulic circuits, anti-lock braking assisted 28.3cm ventilated discs up front and 27.3cm discs at the rear bring the car to a sure and steady halt.

HISTORY FILE
Supplied by Ford RS Dealers on 10th September 1987, build number 471 of 500 has covered an amazingly low 19,945 miles from new.  All handbooks including the all-important RS500 Cosworth supplement remain in the history file along with some previous MOT certificates and copy V5 documents.  An independent report commissioned by the previous owner by renowned valuation experts Julian Shoolheifer Limited was carried out on 28th October 2014.  This car has also formed part of the world famous Bonkers Collection to which all Ford aficionados are aware.  KGF Classic Cars have taken the car to respected Mr Harvey Gibbs of Cosworth specialists, Supreme Car Services, for a full service and inspection including cambelt and tensioner as well as a MOT.  One key fits all locks and ignition.

This vehicle will appeal to the discerning collector wanting an incredibly well preserved, unmolested example of a now very rare car.  KGF Classic Cars are proud to offer this truly special car to the market and the exceptional opportunity that it represents to the informed enthusiast who will appreciate such cars are rarely offered to the open market.

EXTERIOR
This impeccable example is finished in beautiful original Diamond White (code B3).  The unspoilt factory finish showcases a bright pure shine, commensurate with the cars astonishingly low miles and careful storage.  Needless to say the factory panels are pin straight with uniform gaps and all trim sections and RS decals are as new.  A light scuff to the front offside and nearside bumper corners as well light scratches to the driver’s door mirror are insignificant and remain untreated in the pursuit of originality.  KGF Classic Cars are happy to have this work rectified within the purchase price should the next owner desire.  Represented in truly special preserved state, this RS Turbo retains all the manufacturers’ originality and unmolested appeal including the supplying Ford Main Dealer number plates.  A completely standard engine compartment displays all the factory stickers and plates.  Near impossible to find such a special RS Turbo, this example is a worthy show contender.

This original Escort RS Turbo has a perfect interior remaining exactly as Ford intended.  The fully adjustable supportive Recaro seats show no wear to the Zolda fabric (Code LW) with the ever popular Shadow grey, red and blue pattern.  Matching door cards are pristine with only slight markings to the driver’s pull handle.  The pristine carpets have been beautifully preserved and have retained complete fullness to the pile.  All switches, knobs and dials function correctly and the fully operational Ford Self-Seek stereo radio/cassette with speaker directional control remains fitted with original speakers.  The boot area is spotless with original build stickers and markings intact.  A truly magnificent example of this legendary RS Ford.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The 1.6 OHC (CVH) fuel injected engine with a Garrett AiResearch T3 turbo charger and intercooler is completely factory standard making this vehicle a rare example that is now the exception.  Producing 132bhp in such a lightweight car, the 0-60 dash is dealt with in 8.2 seconds and a top speed of 128mph is achieved.  A factory original exhaust system remains fitted.  Having only covered a mere 21,801 miles, the 5-speed manual Ford BC box with standard 220mm clutch is light and precise with crisp clutch action.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The original unrestored light alloy 6X15 RS wheels remain undamaged and pristine.  Five matching factory correct Dunlop SP Sport D40 195/50 R15 tyres have masses of tread remaining but renewal prior to regular use would be prudent due to age.  This fast Ford icon stops as well as it goes with the ABS braking system designed in conjunction with Lucus Girling working perfectly.

HISTORY FILE
Registered new on 23rd March 1989, this incredible example boasts provenance of having just two keepers.  A Mr Brown purchased the car new as a birthday present for his wife Sheila.  The vehicle having enjoyed regular use was subsequently used only sparingly following Mr Brown’s passing, however regular maintenance and annual MOT testing was upheld.  The second keeper Mr David Tring purchased the car in November 2002 from Cheffins Auction House, a route of sale deemed to be the least emotionally taxing by Mrs Brown.  With no intention of buying whilst at the auction, Mr Tring was overcome by an episode of spontaneity and decided to purchase this example for nostalgic reasons having owned a similar example when new!  The decision to sell this stunning example is born from his AC Cobra recreation project requiring more time and attention.

The Ford leather wallet contains the original stamped service book along with every handbook, radio guide and dealership literature from point of sale.  Furthermore, the history file contains MOT certificates and invoices to further support the incredible low mileage and even the Cheffins Auction bidding card!  This vehicle is certain to appeal to a collector of modern classics wanting one of the best, most original lowest mileage examples in existence.  The ultimate Ford fans desire.

MODEL HISTORY
Launched in January 1976, the Mk2 Escort RS2000 featured the highly distinctive ‘droop snoot’ nose cone housing the four Cibie quartz halogen headlamps.  The early cars at the time of launch were only available with one specification and one trim colour option, black.  Known as the Broadstripe due to the wider side coachline designed to replicate a continuation of the bumpers, the basic specification of these early cars had all the options which were later to make up the `Custom Pack`.  In July 1976 the Broadstripe was dropped for a smaller twin coachline and in 1978 the introduction of two models, the Base and Custom Packs offered a wider choice for Ford customers.

EXTERIOR
This very early March 1976 example represents an extremely rare car with its non-sunroof and non-vinyl roof configuration.  Finished in the rare original colour of Carnival Red (code D), the vibrant paintwork is simply stunning.  Only very close scrutiny from the perfectionist will reveal minimal and miniscule imperfections to the finish, entirely insignificant.  The Ziebart plugged drill holes remain having served their purpose of preserving the cars structural integrity.  Correct early RS2000 exterior features include the broad side stripe, ‘pre blue oval’ FORD lettering to the grille and bootlid and wing badges to denote 2.0 engine size.  A program of underside and engine compartment detailing add to the exceptional appeal of this beautiful car and firmly upholds its show car credentials.  All trim sections and decals are perfect and just as Ford intended, and the supplying Ford dealer rear screen sticker remains in place.  Truly pristine and very very special.

INTERIOR
The absolute wow factor certainly continues to the interior of this RS2000.  Correct standard Black (code A8) Scheel roll top seats preceded the widely used Fishnets Recaros, and these fitments are pristine.  Further features of the pre Custom/Base cars include the black headlining, tinted glass, Ford analogue clock, glovebox and white needle instruments, all items present and correct!  The perfect fascia and dash top house fully functioning gauges and equipment including the two speed fan and clock.  The carpets, door cards and black headlining are all unmarked.  A spotlessly clean boot displays the rubber strap holding the spare wheel and the original jack inside the Ford hessian bag is present.  An alarm has been fitted.  Beautifully preserved and wonderfully true to the Ford RS vision, simply superb!

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
An overhauled 1993cc SOHC engine features a correct blue rocker cover and has been further enhanced with the addition of twin Weber 45 DCOE carburettors.  All components are beautifully detailed and polished to match the exceptional exterior.  An invoice in the history file dated April 2015 from renowned Wayne Mitchell Competition Engines Ltd evidences a full check over including compression check, timing adjustment, coolant flush, ignition timing, carb balance, gearbox oil and various other points to ensure absolute optimum performance.  A Type 9 gearbox conversion has been professionally installed to offer real modern day usability.  This classic RS2000 goes even better than it looks!

Ford Sierra RS Cosworth

SORRY NOW SOLD – SIMILAR WANTED

A legendary original Ford Sierra RS Cosworth with just 25,768 miles from new.

MODEL HISTORY
The Sierra RS Cosworth project was defined in the spring of 1983 by the then recently appointed head of Ford Motorsport in Europe.  It was established that at the time, Ford was no longer competitive in this area.  After receiving full support from Ford Public Relations, the project was underway with the Sierra chosen as the basis for the project.  Ford Motorsport in Europe approached the automotive company Cosworth who answered positively, but put up two conditions:  The street version of the car had to produce no less than 204 HP, and Ford had to accept no less than 15,000 engines.  The project would only need about 5,000 engines, but Ford nevertheless accepted the conditions. The extra 10,000 engines would later become one of the reasons Ford also chose to develop a four door, second generation Sierra RS Cosworth.  Few cars have ever been greeted with such enthusiasm as the original Sierra RS Cosworth.

EQUIPMENT
Bodyside mouldings, integral front air dam, colour coded door mirrors, electrically adjustable and heated door mirrors, colour coded lockable fuel filler cap, bonnet cooling vents, halogen headlamps, integral front driving lamps, colour coded bumpers with front moulded overriders, single plane rear wing spoiler, tinted glass all round, tailgate wash/wipe, laminated windscreen, extended centre console, cigar lighter, quartz digital clock, fascia light dimmer, leather gearknob, leather three spoke sports steering wheel, 3-speed heater fan , cassette storage, electronic sound system (model ECU2) with power amplifier, electric aerial, Recaro Sports front seats, split folding rear seats, tilt and slide sunroof, tachometer with turbo boost gauge, trip recorder, anti-locking brake system with failure warning light, electric front windows.  Factory options; Ford Black paintwork.

EXTERIOR
The commanding exterior of this RS Cosworth is breath-taking and nothing short of simply magnificent.  Finished in optional Ford Black (code A9), the paintwork boasts a deep gloss shine from the original, unrestored factory finish.  The car has no rust or corrosion whatsoever and its stunning preservation is commensurate with an example of such amazing low mileage.  All exterior trim is in excellent order as is the glass, lights and badges, although the front lower rubber splitter is mildly out of shape.  Light stone chips to the rear lower arch extensions and a couple to the front are left untreated so as not to dilute the originality.  Dealer number plates and rear window sticker are fitted as is a red coachline specified by a previous owner.  The engine bay is incredible in its originality and condition with factory plates and stickers displayed but has never been detailed.  A truly sensational car remaining just as Ford intended.

The interior of this RS Cosworth is simply stunning.  Finished in Ford Roma Grey (code S2), the Recaro seats and door trim are superb.  Only light creasing to the driver’s seat base is evident.  The carpets are spotless and have remained free from wear having been protected by tailored floor mats.  All interior equipment and trim is original, functional and free from any modification or additions.  The dashboard is immaculate having suffered no cracks, discolouration or distortion.  The standard electronic sound system with power amplifier remains as Ford intended and the LCD display to warn of bulb failure and open doors operates perfectly with all lamps elements working.  Even the original unopened Ford first aid kit still wrapped in cellophane remains in the parcel shelf compartment!  An absolute showpiece.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The original RS Cosworth powerplant warrants little introduction.  Fitted with the standard 2.0 Dual Over Head Cam (DOHC) with Garrett AiResearch T3 turbocharger and intercooler, the motorsport pedigree of this car is unmistakable.  With an impressive output of 204HP allowing the car accelerate smoothly through 0-60 in 6.2 seconds and reach a top speed of 149mph, this truly is a recipe to set the heart racing.  The low mileage is clearly evident when changing through the gears with crisp, tight and precise progression up and down the range.  An absolute delight.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The standard 15 X 7 inch RS Sierra Cosworth alloy wheels are shod with Firestone Firehawk 205/50 R15 tyres all round, with excellent tread remaining.  Retaining the factory standard finish, the wheels are exceptional albeit for just a faint section of lacquer lift on the offside front rim.  Diagonally split hydraulic circuits, anti-lock braking assisted 28.3cm ventilated discs up front and 27.3cm discs at the rear bring the car to a sure and steady halt.

HISTORY FILE
Supplied new on the 2nd June 1987 by Ford Main Dealers Gilbert Rice, this example has had just three former keepers with the main custodian having owned the car from November 1988 until September 2014.  The history file consists of many main dealer and specialist invoices dating throughout the vehicles life as well as previous MOT certificates. A print out is also included revealing date, mileage and work carried out of every visit. An invoice in the history file from 2013 for £1,031.83 evidences a cambelt change including auxiliary belts and pulley assembly, water pump and brake overhaul in addition to service items.  A further oil service has just been carried out in April 2015 with less than 100 miles covered since.

Now having covered a very low 25,768 miles from new, this car has never been restored or modified, even the factory supplied exhaust system is still fitted!  An exceptional show car worthy of any premier collection.

Ford Sierra RS Cosworth

SORRY NOW SOLD – SIMILAR WANTED

An ex-modified concours winning Ford Sierra RS Cosworth with 28,066 miles.

MODEL HISTORY
The Sierra RS Cosworth project was defined in the spring of 1983 by the then recently appointed head of Ford Motorsport in Europe.  It was established that at the time, Ford was no longer competitive in this area.  After receiving full support from Ford Public Relations, the project was underway with the Sierra chosen as the basis for the project.  Ford Motorsport in Europe approached the automotive company Cosworth who answered positively, but put up two conditions:  The street version of the car had to produce no less than 204 HP, and Ford had to accept no less than 15,000 engines.  The project would only need about 5,000 engines, but Ford nevertheless accepted the conditions. The extra 10,000 engines would later become one of the reasons Ford also chose to develop a four door, second generation Sierra RS Cosworth.  Few cars have ever been greeted with such enthusiasm as the original Sierra RS Cosworth.

EQUIPMENT
Bodyside mouldings, integral front air dam, colour coded door mirrors, electrically adjustable and heated door mirrors, colour coded lockable fuel filler cap, bonnet cooling vents, halogen headlamps, integral front driving lamps, colour coded bumpers with front moulded overriders, single plane rear wing spoiler, tinted glass all round, tailgate wash/wipe, laminated windscreen, extended centre console, cigar lighter, quartz digital clock, fascia light dimmer, leather gearknob, leather three spoke sports steering wheel, 3-speed heater fan , cassette storage, electronic sound system (model ECU2) with power amplifier, electric aerial, Recaro Sports front seats, split folding rear seats, tilt and slide sunroof, tachometer with turbo boost gauge, trip recorder, anti-locking brake system with failure warning light, electric front windows.  Nonstandard items: Chrome plated door locks, chrome plated door latches, oval smoked side repeaters, 3 inch stainless steel exhaust, various underbody chrome plated components.

EXTERIOR
The commanding exterior of this RS Cosworth is breath-taking and nothing short of simply magnificent.  Finished in Diamond White (code B3), the paintwork boasts a deep gloss shine thanks to its pampered show winning past and commensurate with an example of such amazing low mileage.  All exterior trim is in excellent order as is the glass, lights and badges but some minute stress fractures to the rear spoiler fixing points can be seen.  The underside of this fabulous car is detailed perfection but not completely original with some components remaining chrome plated from its show winning past.  The engine bay is spotlessly clean and the once spectacle of modified class winning exhibiting has largely been reversed to replicate a now standard look.  Breathtaking in every sense and a real crowd pleaser.

INTERIOR
The interior of this RS Cosworth is pristine.  Finished in Ford Roma Grey (code S2), the Recaro seats and door trim are superb.  The carpets are spotless and are free from wear having been protected by Ford floor mats.  Seat and steering wheel covers have also been used.  All interior equipment and trim is original, functional and free from any modification or additions other than a period immobiliser.  The dashboard is immaculate having suffered no cracks, discolouration or distortion.  The standard electronic sound system with power amplifier remains as Ford intended and the LCD display to warn of bulb failure and open doors operates perfectly with all lamp elements working.  An absolute showpiece.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Recent works to the original RS Cosworth powerplant are documented and an extensive refurbishment process to restore originality is largely complete.  Finishing items such as some factory stickers, a turbo heat shield and fusebox black material cover are required.  There are also some minor clips and fixings chrome plated.  Performance from the 204HP 2.0 Dual Over Head Cam with Garrett AiResearch T3 turbocharger is impressive with 0-60 in 6.2 seconds and a top speed of 149mph quoted.  The low mileage is clearly evident when changing through the gears with crisp, tight and precise progression up and down the range.  An absolute delight.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The standard 15 X 7 inch RS Sierra Cosworth alloy wheels are shod with Goodyear Eagle 205/50 R15 tyres all round, with excellent tread remaining.  The boot mounted spare houses an unused factory issued Dunlop D40.  Diagonally split hydraulic circuits, anti-lock braking assisted 28.3cm ventilated Tarox 40 groove discs up front and 27.3cm discs at the rear bring the car to a sure and steady halt.

HISTORY FILE
Supplied new on the 27th August 1986 by Ford Main Dealers, R.C Edmondson Ltd this vehicle was purchased by the Managing Director of plating company when just three years old having covered 12,837 miles.  At which point the vehicle was completely standard and had two former keepers.  He set about transforming the car to showcase the expertise and capabilities of his business and stun the show circuit.  Magazine features, interviews and articles are included documenting the many class wins including 1993 RSOC National Day Champion, modified, post 1981.  In his care, (with a short absence before being compelled to buy his pride and joy back), until December 2014 the vehicle was sold to a Ford aficionado who set about returning the car to standard.  Now almost complete, a new owner may wish to enjoy and show the car as is, or complete the standard look fully.  A number of previous MOT certificates, service book entries and invoices help verify the low mileage covered.  A rare and fascinating car.

This stunning example is finished in original Forest Green (code T1) over Crystal Green (code 61). The factory paint has a glorious deep uniform shine owing to the remarkably low miles covered and the truly cosseted ownership. All factory panels are straight with even gaps and free from corrosion, and the underside is structurally perfect having been protected from new with no repair work undertaken or required. Close scrutiny will reveal only very minor markings which are left untreated to retain the factory finish. Worthy of mention is a light scratch to the nearside front wing edge and a touched in scratch to the rear nearside wing as well as two miniscule dings to the roof.

This truly exceptional interior is a real credit to the cars cherished past.

The four speed all synchromesh manual gearbox feels light with a positive clutch action and relaxed motoring is effortless.
