What can you say about the Iconic Mk 1 Escort in Rally trim! has there ever been a better looking or more instantly recognisable Rally car!

Arguably the ultimate Rally car of all time, and a legendary model that has enjoyed competition success for the past 50 years!!

They say that somewhere in the world an Escort has competed in a motor sport event every weekend since 1968! and that's probably correct!

Here is your chance to turn the key on a period style MK1 Escort RS1600 replica that is being offered for under half of its replacement cost to this spec and standard today.

The stunning looking RS 1600 has been a rally car for a number of years and has recently been restored inside and out to the standard it is presented in today, and having successfully competed in only six events since a comprehensive total rebuild, it is still in very good order.

The clean shell is surprisingly good for a car that's spent most of its life sideways on gravel, and over all presents very well. The forest arches give these spectacular cars a really aggressive period style and this one has had a lot of attention to detail lavished on it throughout, complemented by the correct style RS1600 stripes of the period.

The running gear in this example consists of a fully rebuilt 1600 Cross Flow engine (approx $30k worth) running Twin 40mm Webbers, sitting in a World Cup Cross-member, which is coupled to a Rocket gearbox, and onto an English Limited Slip Diff complete with a five link set up, which is a tried and tested package proven to get results.

A lot of good gear and expertise has been invested in this stunning little car with quick rack steering, a hydraulic hand brake, brake bias set up, competition brakes, Rally Safe GPS unit, new Ralloy alloy fuel tank, etc etc, the list just goes on and on!

The interior is all business too with a Stack dash, full cage, Sabelt harnesses, fire extinguishers, and a full new re-wire throughout.

Anyone who knows this type of car will immediately recognise the value in this turnkey fully sorted car, this example is fully LVVTA certified for the numerous modifications, and will be sold with new W.O.F up to date rego, and authority card.

If you have always fancied yourself as a bit of an Ari Vatanen, and love listening to the unmistakable spine tingling sound of one of these iconic Escorts at full song screaming through the forest, full opposite lock firing shingle everywhere, here's your chance to have a go yourself!

A very impressive little car that certainly won't disappoint for value for the money....
