We present for sale this beautifully presented, concourse prepared classic Sierra RS Cosworth from 1987 finished in classic ford diamond white.
The car has been with its current owner for over 14 years having been bought the car as a multiple concourse trophy winning show car. The Cosworth was used sparingly as a weekend car for several years before subsequently taken off the road and put into storage in 2010 when a growing family took priority.
In 2016, the owner decided to return the car to the road, but only after bringing it back to its former concourse condition and so started an in depth re-commissioning including a complete chassis, engine and gearbox restoration at great time and financial expense leaving no stone unturned (see the details below).
The results speak for themselves, and the car is now once again presented in simply stunning condition along with an engine which has covered little more than a running in period. The car also drives every bit as well as it looks.
A rare opportunity to purchase an outstanding and well sorted example of one of Fords most iconic classic hot hatchbacks which went on to form the basis of one of the eras most successful touring car championship race cars in the hands of such legends as Andy Rouse.

In 2016, the owner set about returning the Cosworth back to its concourse condition including a full engine and chassis overhaul replacing or re-conditioning most major parts from front to back.
