This one is for all you Rally Car Enthusiasts. Here we have a 1986 Ford RS200 LHD Street Spec Rally Car. Extremely low miles, 981 when it rolled into our dealership. The vehicle is finished in White w/Gray interior and red Racing Seats. The VIN # is SFACXXBJ2CGL00171.
History of Ownership
Imported into the country in 1988 and according to paperwork straight from Ford Motor Company in England to Denver, CO. The vehicle must have been Brand New. It was sold to the current owner here in Oregon in 2002 with 400 miles on it. Good news is it has an Oregon Title and with the documentation, EPA Release Papers. Just like any other import, laws vary from state to state.
The vehicle has always been stored indoors in a climate controlled showroom and according to it's previous owners, always driven properly with proper warm-up and cool down procedures. It is a 20 year old car that has been well kept and is a prized possesion. This is a rare opportunity to own a classic Rally car that will surely appreciate in value, especially since only about 200 units were ever made.
The car weighs in with a curb weight of about 2800 lbs. With a lightweight composite steel/aluminum/honeycomb tub with built-in roll cage. The body is made out of Fiber Glass panels w/carbon/aramid stiffening. Extremely easy access to all major mechanical components via lift up front and rear sections.
Styling was probably one of the best thing about the RS200 vs other Group B Rally Cars. Thanks to Ghia studio taking the responsibility of styling it out.
