This Ford Escort RS Cosworth was registered for the first time on June 21st, 1996. Mr. Certain was probably the first owner since an invoice dated August 2nd, 1996 shows a revision of the run-in, and the installation of the optional rear spoiler, registered at this period as WW for garage use. It was received at the Drire at the request of Efjie Racing Distribution in Blois, on October 7th, 1996 and then registered in the name of Mr. Certain, on October 23rd, 1996. The latter kept it until 2017, so it almost is a first hand. It was then routinely maintained at MC Racing in Meynes, at the Garage Perret André in Lacroix-Barrez, at the Garage Marc Dominique in St Hippolyte, then at the Garage Guitard in Brommat. All the invoices available until 2017 justify the mileage of the car. Mr. Certain therefore traveled 61,750 kilometers at the wheel of this Escort. Since 2017, the Escort has undergone a number of maintenance: the transmission was repaired at Sens Electro Diesel; in April 2019, the timing belt, water pump, all fluids, spark plugs, filters and stabilizer bar bearings were replaced. Today, this Ford Escort RS Cosworth displays 65,500 kilometers on the odometer, justifiable by invoices and technical checks. Indeed, we have all the technical inspections carried out since 2000 and invoices dating back some to 1996. In good working condition and well maintained, this Ford is also in excellent condition of presentation. The body painted in dark metallic green presents particularly well, all the specific elements of the RS Cosworth are well present up to the original aluminum rims, themselves in very good condition. The interior is completely original and looks almost new, the Recaro fabric seats have no holes or tears. The plastics are also in excellent condition. This is a rare model, e
