This example of one of the hotter and rarer MkIII Escorts ‑ just 8659 RS1600is were built ‑ was registered in September 1983. With its fuel‑injected 1597cc engine (it was, incidentally, the first Escort variant to receive fuel injection), the RS1600i generated 113bhp.

The Escort has (1)47,409 miles recorded on its odometer, with 17 former keepers noted by the V5C. Its last MoT expired in 23 September 2016. Included in the paperwork folder are several invoices dating back to 1998. These include refurbished alloy wheels in 2012 and engine work on the valves and cylinder head in 2014. There are also photos of the Escort's rebuild and renovation ‑ although it's unclear quite when this was ‑ plus a copy of a Fast Ford magazine article on the RS1600i model.

MoT certificates are present from 1996, 1997, 1999, 2000, 2004, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2013, 2014 and 2015, which confirm the current mileage of 147,409.  

The car presents well, but will obviously require some recommissioning to return to the road. There are some age‑related marks to the body, and minor wear apparent on the cloth interior inside, including some bagginess in spots, as is very common on Fords of this era and mileage.
