1981 Ford Escort RS2000


The client commissioned RM to undertake a full restoration and rebuild of his Ford Escort MK2 RS2000, requesting it look like it would have straight out of the factory.

The car was built from a bare shell and we started this project by stripping it down to the bare metal. We proceeded to cut away all corrosion and replace with new panels where needed. This car also underwent a complete restoration mechanically as we rebuilt the engine, gearbox, rear axle, and full brake system. Extensive preparation then followed ready for a full respray, opting for the Ford factory white. Once painted, all the mechanics and electrics were fitted back into the car and thoroughly tested to ensure it would perform perfectly on its maiden drive. We fitted a new interior to ensure it looked as good as it did the day it came out of the factory. Finally, we applied the various pieces of external trim and RS2000 graphics onto the sides of the car as per the factory specification.

“Excellent, the quality of work is exceptional and I’m really happy with the car.”
