This completely unrestored original example is nothing short of mind
blowing. The factory original Ford Radiant Red (code P9) paintwork is
simply spectacular with a deep uniform shine throughout, making polishing a
sheer joy! Two miniscule chips to the offside rear door barely detract
from an otherwise pristine finish. There is no rust or corrosion
whatsoever and all factory panels are straight and damage free. All
exterior trim, glass and lights remain in excellent order, as have the
manufacturer correct badges and decals and even the supplying Ford main
dealer rear window sticker. The clean engine bay is totally standard and
still has all the correct engine and chassis identification numbers
confirming this to be a true genuine RS Cosworth example. Breathtaking.
The factory fresh interior of this unrepeatable car is an instant throwback
to a 1989 Ford Main Dealer showroom! All the door shuts and hinges are
spotlessly clean and polished. Trimmed in special order original Raven
Black full leather (code 6R), the seats and matching door cards are nothing
short of impeccable with only tiny light creases to the leather on the
bolsters. The dashboard is completely free from any cracks and all
incorporated switches and functions are intact and operate as they should.
The three spoke leather trimmed sports steering wheel and gear knob are
perfect and still have the natural veins in the leather. The standard
electronic sound system (model 2006) with power amplifier remains fully
operational. The ultimate RS cockpit, wonderfully preserved.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Fitted with the standard 1993cc Dual Over Head Cam (DOHC) engine with the
Garrett AiResearch T.03B turbocharger
and Intercooler, the racing
pedigree of this car is truly evident. Performance figures of 0-60mph in
6.1 seconds and a top speed of 150mph enable this car to firmly hold its
own among modern contenders. The standard Borg-Warner five speed manual
transmission delivers wonderfully light and crisp changes throughout the
range. A recent engine service ensures optimum performance standards,
exactly as Ford intended.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The factory fitted 15 X 7 RS Sierra Cosworth 'Lattice Style' alloy wheels
are unrestored and perfect. The stamped Ford badge and serial numbers on
each wheel are clearly defined having never been repainted. The wheels are
shod in brand new and now unobtainable and highly sought after Dunlop SP
Sport D40 tyres, as fitted when new. Diagonally split hydraulic, anti-lock
braking assistance installs infinite confidence.
Registered new on the 9th October1989 by Ford Main Dealer Hartwell Motors
of Banbury, the vehicle was purchased by the first owner Mr B Grantham. An
original sales invoice in the history file illustrates the purchase price
of £20,774.08 including the transfer of private plate SUE 593. A further
two keepers cherished this incredible example prior to being purchased by
the fanatical and widely respected Mark Bailey in January 2008 and forming
part of the world famous Bonkers RS Collection. After six years enjoying
pride of place in the Bonkers museum, KGF Classic Cars are privileged to
offer this unique and very special vehicle to the next discerning keeper.
A large history file further consists of all original handbooks, service
schedule, radio guides and other point of sale literature. Many main
dealer and specialist invoices as well as previous MOT certificates leave
in no doubt the incredibly low 29,469 miles covered, and help to document
the fastidious care this example has received.
One of only five special order Radiant Red Sapphire Cosworths built to
celebrate the end of 2WD production. The ultimate collectors piece.
MOT February 2015, HPI Clear, Approved Used Car Check Certificate.
