This month’s Classic Car Auctions Practical Classics sale sees a 1977 Ford MKII RS2000 Factory X-Pack and more classic Fords up for grabs.
You may have noticed that ‘Classic’ Fords are now starting to fetch serious money; cars you couldn’t have sold for a tenner a decade ago are now fetching properly silly money.
Inevitably, the rise and rise of the cream of Fords past is also dragging up prices of slightly lesser cars, and next weekend’s (23-24 March 2019) Classic Car Auctions Practical Classics sale has a few interesting classic Fords – if your budget stretches.
Possibly the most interesting is a 1977 Ford MKII RS2000 Factory X-Pack (above) – the original Tricentrol Ford RS X-Pack publicity car – which has been in the same family ownership for the last 30 years, comes with lots of history, but needs a bit of TLC to recommission it. CCA reckon it’ll fetch £30-38k.
Also up for grabs is a 1983 Ford Escort RS1600i, which has had a full restoration and is reckoned to be one of just 95 left in the wild. CCa reckons it’ll fetch £20-25k.
There’s even a 1984 Fiesta XR2 which was put in storage in 1986 and has covered just 23,670 miles, which CCA think is worth £14-18k.
But if your taste in classic Fords lies across the Pond, there’s also a 1968 Ford Mustang CS GTS with extensive history, original sales invoice, fifty years of invoices and subject to a full restoration in the early 2000s. It’s finished in lime gold metallic, has 105k miles on the clock and is expected to fetch £20-25k.
