1980 Ford Escort MK2 RS2000 Coupe

Ford Escort 1980 RS2000 - this one found on trademe.co.nz asking $20,000.00.  It's an 11918 2-door A, imported to NZ from Australia originally. last owner owned it for years and imported it from Australia 10 years ago. The car was bought two months ago and I paid $27100.00 for it. A change in my circumstances means I have to sell it. It has a new WOF and will expire in 9th month. Car has had respray to tidy it up.. Motor, gearbox and diff are all good. New rear brake shoes and cylinders, new brake line front to rear. new headlights. 

Car needs full interior kit which you can buy off trade me. hoodlining,carpets and seats need recovered. 

Has original drop tank in boot with shortened tailshaft gearbox and strengthening plates under the drivers floor and top of struts like all RS2000 escorts. It is a CK41 rs. 

Please no stupid questions or comments only genuine people wanting to purchase the car please. With interior kit and a bit more tidying up will make a nice RS2000 which are getting very rare.The door locks all work but have been attacked at some stage to break in. Boot requires the boot springs nothing major. Viewing recommended.

Hi I'm not sure if you still own the rs, , I'd like to let up you know I used to own this car in adelaide ,Australia about 15yrs ago. Back then they were just getting to start being sort after and the price was rising. I an amazed is still alive and has the same globe rims that I put on it. Some detail that makes it my old car is i painted some engine bay items in gold, booster, bonnet rod, lock strike etc. I also fitted the sunroof as the old sunroof was stuffed. There is suppose to be a fuel filler dummy cap in the std escort rear side panel but I deleted it. The interior trim was done by a mate of mine which was originally black and blue though the sun must've faded the black to gray lol. I hope you sold it for the asking price that is much more than I got in 2001 , which was only $3500 au lol If you'd like any pics of when i owned it as proof send email to mjw8570@yahoo.com.au Best regards Martin
