Additional Information
HISTORY FILE
Introduced in September 1981, this stunning RS1600i was built in June 1983, the penultimate month before final production in July 1983, one of 2,600 UK examples and one of 560 in Sunburst Red. (Source: RS Owners Club). Registered new on the 1st August 1983 by Ford Main Dealer, Stormont of Tunbridge Wells, the car has covered a verified 46,115 miles from new with just two owners. The first owner, Mr Thompson, eagerly awaited delivery of his car after carefully perusing the sales brochure, still in the history file, and highlighting the factory options he wanted! There are even pages from a December 1982 copy of Motoring News whereby the RS1600i was featured and kept in the history file! In May 1985 the car was sold to the only other registered owner, Mr Ritchie who continued to cherish the car with annual servicing before placing it in storage. A full complement of handbooks including the stamped service book are contained within the blue Stormont of Tunbridge Wells A5 folder. The comprehensive history folder dates back to the first owners V5 registration document and old MOT’s certificates from the very first in 1986 until it was placed in storage. A large collection of service and maintenance invoices leave in no doubt this rare Ford RS has been a cherished example and the superb performance of the car reflects this. A truly special Ford Rallye Sport.
