HISTORY FILE
An amazing history awaits presentation to the new owner of this special car. Built at Fords Advanced Vehicle Operations factory in Aveley in March 1973 this vehicle was registered on the 1st May 1973 to the Ford Motor Company, Warley, Essex, CM13 3BW. Archived AVO records provided by William Arnold, the RS Owners Club Mk1 RS1600 Registrar, reveal this car was owned by Ford until 22nd April 1974. During this time the car was used for display purposes. One such display was the Ford Summer Fair held at Bramcote in July 1973 where the F.A.V.O had a marquee to display a selection of Escort Mexico’s and RS1600’s under the heading of Ford Rallye Sport Scene. XWC189L was one of five cars on show next to a Mexico Group One Race Car and even Roger Clarks Rally Car!

This car has a long standing history with the AVO Owners Club and even features in the current AVO Owners Club 2022 Calendar. The current paid member, Mr Spurrier, purchased the car in June 2013 and embarked on a comprehensive restoration which can be enjoyed on the Oldskoolford forum. Masses of invoices detail the expenditure and leave no stone unturned and combined with thousands of photos on a memory stick will absolutely reassure the next owner. All handbooks, spare keys and even an identical Corgi Vanguards Limited Edition model of the identical car is included! A rare opportunity.
