Ford Sierra RS 500 Cosworth White Build Number 1 1987 Collectors Item

Sellers Comments - This is the definitive RS500, the only one built by Ford themselves, there are no others like it. A genuine pre-production model, first registered by Ford Motor Co Ltd in 1987, re-shelled by Ford during the development process .It has been inspected by Paul Linfoot, a leading expert on of the RS500 who has written a report which is available on request. For any serious Ford collector, this must be the car to own. The one that started it all! We welcome any inspection of this significant Ford. This car is the very first one ever produced, Chassis Number 1. Defined as a pre-production model, it was the only one ever completed by Ford. It is well known that the first four cars were designated Development /Prototype cars, but this was Ford's car, not a Tickford development. With values of the RS500 having soared during the last few years, this is surely the proverbial 'Holy Grail' for any Ford collector, The car has been out of the UK for much of its recent life, however, it still presents superbly with very little modification from new. Aside from a stainless steel Magnex the RS appears remarkably original. However, the essence of this particular RS500 is its history. With the car, is a comprehensive history file containing a number of older MoTs, some early Tax Discs, and the usual registration and ownership information etc. The car has covered only 9000 miles since a complete engine rebuild costing £6576 .00 in 1998 including a new crankshaft, Pistons ,con rods .main bearings ,clutch ,inlet and exhaust valves and guides ,invoice included in history file The car runs and drives like new you wont be disappointed The history and provenience make this the 500 to own We welcome any inspection -
