1980 Ford Escort MK2 RS2000 Sedan

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. 

Aftermarket exhaust 
Lowered in the rear 
4 speed quick shift gear box 
Drop tank 
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.
