Body & Paintwork
As you would expect of a car with this mileage, the bodywork is in fantastic condition throughout.
A fantastic shine is present, and zero signs of any corrosion at all.
A very rare car in the Moonstone Blue (only 52 made), all correct RS500 pinstripes and badges are present and in fantastic order.
The original front splitter is also undamaged, as are the twin RS500 spoilers.
All glass is in great condition, with one rear quarter window has a small scratch, which does not detract from the cars appearance or condition.
All lights look fresh, and ‘as new’, and the car still sports the correct Dunlop D40 tyres.
Original foglamps are still present and in the original boxes in the boot, as they were delivered by Ford.
The underside is in great condition, not detailed but very very good indeed.
Interior & Trim
As you would expect with such low mileage, the interior is in superb condition throughout.
The dash has zero cracks, not even a tiny crack is present on this dashboard.
Completely crack and warp free dashboard.
All doorcards are in superb order, with no ‘lifting’ or warping, they are exactly as they left the factory.
The headlining is also in great shape, with no ‘sagging’ in any areas at all, and looks to be completely original with no signs of the headlining having been removed or repaired.
Seat bolsters are as new, with no wear or ‘softening’ of the bolsters at all.
The parcel shelf is 100% straight, with no warping or bowing present.
The boot is also in perfect order.
A truly immaculate interior throughout.
All dials and gauges work as they should do, including the multi function warning display.
A well cared for car which has been used sparingly…
The engine is very quiet, and runs beautifully.
The car does not smoke, either on start up, idle, on boost or on overrun.
A true pleasure to drive, and even by todays standards, a very capable car.
224bhp in standard form, and no modifications have been carried out on the example.
All original RS500 components are present and correct.
Even the exhaust is the original Ford item.
The car drives very well indeed.
The gearchange is nice…… tight and precise, as you would expect with such low mileage.
Brakes are sharp and pull straight, even by todays standards the brakes are very good indeed.
Correct Dunlop D40 tyres are fitted to undamaged original alloy wheels.
The tyres look to be almost new.
A sporty drive with plenty of ‘feel’ and ‘feedback’ from the car.
A true 80’s icon, and an absolute pleasure.
