A very impressive competition Escort Cosworth built by an experienced team with considerable attention to detail.


Originally owned and run by Motorsport Vision this particular Escort has recently been totally rebuilt as a Sprint and Hillclimb car on a Ford Motorsport 909 'Group N' shell, Serial No 799, that has been stitch-welded and fitted with a welded-in roll-cage. Externally, the bonnet and wings are genuine Cosworth with fibreglass side-skirts and spoilers all expertly finished in instantly recognisable ‘Repsol’ colours. Mechanically, it is running a standard engine which has been refreshed by Bob Dowen Rally Services of Cwmbran and built up based on a '205' block with new piston rings and seals as required. Forced induction is courtesy of a fully reconditioned Sierra Cosworth Garrett T3 Turbo and vented through a new 3" stainless steel exhaust system. The radiator is new as is the RS 500 Intercooler and Roose Motorsport hose kit.

A ‘works’ Group N gearbox was sourced having been originally fitted to the 1990 Kenny McKinstry winning car and the remainder of the running gear is Sierra Cosworth 2wd, retardation is assisted by 6 and 4-Pot Compbrake Calipers which are encased within new ‘Rota’ wheels fitted with new Max Sport 225-40-R18 tyres. A more comprehensive list of works and a detailed build-spec is available upon request. Our vendor has a Championship-winning sprint and hill-climb background and there is no aspect of this impressive little Escort that has not received his consideration and in-depth knowledge during the rebuild.

Accompanied by the necessary Motorsport UK Logbook issued 13th July 2022 and valid until 13th July 2032 under ‘Category Sprint & Hill Climb – Sports Libre’, the Escort is now surplus to requirements giving the opportunity for the next custodian to acquire a fully rebuilt Escort without the extensive costs and time scales that a rebuild to this standard dictates.

NB. Please note that this vehicle is not road-registered and is not road legal.
