Less than a week since a 1972 Ford Escort RS1600 was sold by Silverstone Auctions for a record £70,875, another staggering price of £79,995 was achieved by KGF Classic Cars.
The incredible deal of just less than 80K was completed by KGF Classic Cars for a collectable and extremely rare AVO Mk1 Ford Escort RS1600 in outstanding condition.
RS1600 – Immaculate Example
A truly remarkable and immaculate example of a legendary classic, finished in Sunset Red (Code J), a colour only available until July 1972.
Attention To Detail
Attention to detail has been paid in spades to every possible area, including gaps, underside, suspension and engine. All of which are factory correct and as manufactured by Fords Advanced Vehicle Operations.
Invoices from renowned marque expert ASM Restorations will confirm works undertaken to the original shell to bring an already excellent example up to show class territory due to the current long-term owner’s fastidious quest for perfection.
All glass is reported as mark free and lighting is correctly branded with the Cibie Quartz iodine headlamps bright.
An amazing and simple car with an even more amazing price tag.
Is this the best RS1600 ever?
