Advertised on trademe.co.nz in April 2018, this 4-door RS2000 is an Australian built example that's proved a popular export. At the time of sale, this one was asking $20,000 - quite a bit considering the condition, but a very rare car in NZ.
At the time of sale, the vendor noted the following:
2L cortina engine that was rebuilt back in 1999 by West Auckland Engine Reconditioners.
Regularly serviced with all receipts dated back 20+ years ago.
Franklin high lift cam with adjustable cam gear (see photo for details).
Single Weber carburetor unsure of size.
Lowered in the rear
4 speed quick shift gear box
Fuel cap behind number plate
Standard escort seats (not genuine rs2000)
Genuine rears that need re-covering
Factory RS dash race steering wheel that needs replacing as is bent and damaged from someone trying to steal it before we bought it
Sun damage on dash which has caused it to crack
Painted 3-5 years ago
Stored in the garage since we've owned it
Rust is coming through on boot lid and left rear quarter again
Car is in pretty good condition for its age. It has been owned by my mum for the last 20 years and literally has only been driven to the shops and back.
