Ford Escort mk2 RS2000

10 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Needs no introduction to UK guys, but the MK2 RS 2000 was Fords hot car in Europe in the 70's. Totally different front nosecone, spoiler & bonnet to the standard car.

I've just picked up a resin body to convert the Esci / Revell MK2 Escort from this to this.

Probably build it as a street car, but they were also used in rally, racing, as Police cars ect. What do you guys think would best suit it ?

Post more pics once it arrives in the post.

i've always been a rallye fan * thumbs up* but it looks darn good as a street car too! i'd say drop an ol school 289 h po v-8 in it and call it a euro sleeper!

I'd go street or rally. I had a 1600 Sport back in the day but the RS2000 was never made available out here. It would have been something special.

I could remember taking a test drive with my brother years ago 2.0L motor very very lively - nice classic - can't wait to see the finished product - I'm a big rally fan too but i think that white street car is the way to go that nose just sets it apart

Not been on here for a bit, but heres a few quick pics of the resin kit. (I'll try & retake the pics)

It has the RS hood, rear bumper, RS 4 spoke wheels & R/H dash ect. Also in the pic is the Revell kit as a doner. I found seats that are very similar to the Recaro's that the road cars came with.

Unfortunatly, I doupt if I'll have the time / patience / skill to make this model, as it does need some work. So I'll be moving it on / trading it.
