Unlike the Anglia before it, the Ford Escort was available in several sporty performance forms, such as the Twin‑Cam, RS1600, Mexico and RS2000. The latter, as here, had a 100bhp 1993cc overhead‑cam Pinto engine and offered 100mph performance plus a lot of rear‑wheel drive fun in a quite compact package. It was almost as fast as the more complicated RS1600 but as easy to look after and maintain as the Mexico, with which it shared its bodyshell. The car was launched in England on 11 October 1973 priced at £1586.

This particular Escort RS2000 is an original, UK‑supplied right‑hand drive car delivered registered on 5 November 1974, finished in Stardust Silver with black with Charcoal cloth interior and polished wood dash inserts.

After a series of owners, it had a period of over 10 years in storage in the early 2000s, after which it was partially restored, with a view to preservation rather than renewing. New old‑stock front wings and a bonnet were sourced and fitted, and there was some paintwork. The original bumpers and rear light surrounds were re‑chromed, the front and rear seats re‑upholstered and the brake callipers overhauled and refitted.

The history folder contains the V5C (noting 11 former registered keepers), an original sales brochure, assorted invoices (with several from around 2015 when the renovation work seems to have taken place), service book (but only with two stamps, up to 7136 miles in 1975), owner's manual, workshop manual supplement, tax discs from 1976 to 1998, and MoTs from 1989 to 1991, 1993, 1996 to 1997, 2006 and 2015. The odometer reading is 80,496 miles. Externally, the car is in very good order, albeit it with its rear RS2000 badge missing. The interior is also good, although the driver's sun visor is absent, the choke cable is loose and hanging down, the clock doesn't appear to be working, and some of the grey switches exhibit some mottling. A bonus fitment is the period Pioneer tape deck.  

The car seems to have spent some years unused, and so will therefore need some recommissioning to be returned to the road.
