Born: 05 / 02 / 1987
(Averaging around 3,500 miles a year)

On V5 stated as “Sierra RS Cosworth” all correct chassis and engine numbers.
You won’t see many that look this good!

 Classic & Performance car (Octane)
The Sierra Cosworth Family were 1980s Icons
Cherished Originals are now rarer than shoulder pads.
If you want one you better be quick!!

Finding an unmolested car is a serious challenge and,
because of some dubious rustproofing, finding one in sound condition is harder still.
But it’s worth it, especially for the three-door models,
which seem set to follow the RS500’s sharp climb in values.

A truly stunning example that is perfect for shows, or just total satisfaction after cleaning.

A very Genuine car, that looks fantastic…
in the right colour for the right price…….!
A very usable investment opportunity!

“Averaging only 700 miles per year for last 10 years”

Body & Paintwork

This Cosworth has been totally re – painted to an extremely high standard, several years ago.
Apparently this was due the over polishing and loss of paint lustre.

Anyone viewing the car will be able to tell this was not due to corrosion in any way.

All panels are original panels, and panel alignment is perfect as you would expect.
No dents, or distortions are present, new headlights have also been fitted.

This car has been loved and cared for, and it really does show.

We have had the car fully professionally undersealed (underside fully cleaned down & checked prior to underseal application)

Interior & Trim

As shown in the pictures, the original seats are in good condition with only very slight wear to the drivers seat bolster, and they have no rips or tears anywhere.
All switches and gauges work as they should, including the Multi-Function Display unit, Ford mats ‘as new’, the stereo has been replaced with an aftermarket headunit. (No cutting of the door cards or rear shelves has occurred).

The boot is very clean, looking as though it has barely been used at all.
The dash has some small cracks, which is to be expected in a Sierra RS Cosworth.


The engine runs perfectly well, starts first time every time, it does not smoke at all, either on start-up, overrun, or when on boost.
The car drives very well, perfectly tight and straight. The gearbox is extremely smooth, with no whines, or crunches at any speed.

The only modifications to this vehicle are, a Baileys dump valve and a full stainless steel exhaust system.

This Cosworth has had a major service prior to sale and this includes:

Cambelt change
Recent front discs and pads
Brand new rear discs and pads
Oil & filter changed
New starter motor
Full brand new Mongoose stainless steel exhaust system

Running Gear

This Cosworth drives very well indeed, the brakes work perfectly and are excellent, even by todays standards.

The steering is tight and precise, all suspension bushes are in good condition, having all been checked as part of the major service which we have had carried out on this vehicle.
All wheels have been professionally re-furbed to the correct finish a number of years ago, and still look fantastic, and all tyres are in very good condition.
