This Ford RS2000 MKII was first registered on 24th September 1980 and is finished in Terracotta with Beige upholstery. OLH 220W comes with an excellent history with MOT certificates dating back to 1986 and a thorough restoration report from 2007/2008. The fast Ford has recently spent a few years with one owner in both Southern and Northern Ireland and first came to us last year from one of our regular customers in South Yorkshire. We drove the RS2000 faultessley to our premises in North Yorkshire and soon sold the car to a South Wales based collector who is now downsizing his collection.
OLH 220W presents very well and has come to us in excellent mechanical order. The car has had a comprehensive restoration carried out to a very high standard. The engine was removed and stripped down and all parts checked clean and some replaced such as the rear crankshaft seal. The gearbox was also removed and treated to the same. A new clutch pressure plate and release bearing were fitted and both the engine and gearbox re-fitted with new mountings. All l fuel and brake pipes were replaced, front brakes stripped and cleaned, caliper pistons lubricated and new pads fitted. A new speed, clutch and throttle cable were fitted, the thermostat housing replaced, the water pump replaced, a four branch manifold fitted and the fan belt renewed. The rear axle was removed and the complete underside of the car stripped to bare metal. It was then etch primed and painted body colour. The axle was re-fitted and new shock absorbers and shackle bushes fitted. The rear brakes were stripped and brake shoes replaced. Whilst the Ford was stripped down the wings were removed, all rust cut out and replaced with new metal and the car painted. The windscreen was removed, re-fitted with new seals and window seals were also replaced. The interior floor was stripped down, prepared for painting, painted body colour and then sound proofing fitted. New carpets were then put in the car and the seats replaced.
Since completion the RS2000 has had relatively light use and comes to us in lovely condition throughout. After several years since rebuild the paintwork and bodywork are of a very good standard, the interior is excellent and the engine bay very nicely detailed having been professionally painted whilst the engine was out. The car is mechanically excellent, the engine runs superbly, performs superbly and the car is a delight to drive. The RS will be supplied with a full 12 months MOT, freshly serviced and function checked within the price.
