Only just arrived -The droop-snoot RS2000 has become something of a legend in Ford circles and, with rallying heritage, was the Seventies equivalent of Subaru's WRX and Mitsubishi's Evo. Announced in 1979, the Australian RS2000 differed from its English counterpart in a number of ways and was available in both two and four-door guises, with a two-litre engine and short-shift four-speed gearbox This 1980 Australian delivered 2 door RS Escort was bought from the original owner which was a part of an Estate . Built in very limited numbers (2400 approx) and are getting almost impossible to find on the market these days. I would hate to think how many have survived with rust issues & boy racers back in the day.  This is a matching number car that also comes in the factory dark blue duco which is again incredible rare, hence the Shannons insurance value of $60,000. In more recent time the current owner has spent a few dollars here and there including over $5000 in 2017 on a freshen up. Car also comes with JBW replica RS rims just to complete the package.
