1970 Ford Escort RS1600 - Fast and Furious 6 Cars
1970 Ford Escort RS1600 - Fast and Furious 6 Cars. Visit: http://classiccarpictures.us/ Think of it as a '69 Camaro for blokes. It's the Ford Escort RS1600: a simple little car shoved full of the best engine Ford and Cosworth could devise. It's England's half-pint muscle car, but it's not that muscular. And it has a flying, memorable turn in Fast & Furious 6 with Brian O'Conner (Paul Walker) at the wheel. It's the sort of appearance that only adds to the car's legend. Even though no one on this side of the Atlantic knows that legend at all. Introduced in 1968, the Escort was Ford's European small car. Back before front-drive orthodoxy crushed the life out of all things, it was a rear-driver built around a few pieces of bent metal pretending to be a unibody chassis, a pair of MacPherson struts up front and a solid rear axle on leaf springs in back. Most of them came with microscopic four-cylinder, overhead-valve engines of 1.1- or 1.3-liter displacement. These were low-compression, low-horsepower engines and you could personally produce more torque than those engines did using only your tongue. Ordinary? In its day the Escort was more common in England than crumpets or cricket. Pedestrians would walk into them because they were so easy to overlook. It made British Leyland's crap look like exotic delicacies. But then there was the RS... The Greatness of an Engine As ridiculously primitive as the Ford Escort was, its small size made it nimble and its simplicity meant it was rugged. That was enough, in the days before the Group B insanity of the 1980s brought along turbochargers and all-wheel drive, to form the foundation for a good rally car. All the Escort needed was power. In the 1970 Ford Escort RS1600 that power comes from the Cosworth-designed, 1.6-liter twincam 16-valve BDA four-cylinder engine. Released in 1969 and based on Ford's iron "Kent" block, the BDA featured Ford's first four-valve combustion chambers and transformed the sleepy 1970 Escort into a robust athlete prepped to take on rallying. Even with its dual side-draft Weber carbs, the BDA only made about 113 horsepower. But the Escort weighed less than 1,800 pounds, and that gave it a power-to-weight ratio similar to that of the era's nominally more powerful sports cars. Almost immediately, the blister-fendered Escort RS1600 and its close relatives (including the Mexico and RS2000) began racking up victories across the rallying world. And almost immediately, it became a symbol of what Britain still did well: build great racing engines and tune the hell out of small cars. Five for Furious Six Fast & Furious may be an American production, but it's an international hit. The appeal of the 1970 Ford Escort RS1600, though it was never sold in North America, is to that worldwide audience that appreciates Charger Daytonas and Mustangs, but loves the stuff they grew up with as well. So the production bought five of the right-hand-drive RS1600s in Great Britain and completely rebuilt them in a British shop. That meant tearing the Escorts down to the bare shells and building them back up again. The engines were rebuilt, new five-speed manual transmissions went in behind them, new roll cages were fitted and each car was equipped with a pair of racing seats. The standard instrumentation was ditched in favor of black panels with Revotec gauges. Forget an ignition key. It's been replaced by a battery connector plug and individual switches for the fuel pump and ignition. Sitting on 13-by-7-inch Compomotive Minilite-like bladed wheels and painted up in classic blue and white, this is a great-looking little car. The 205/60R13 Federal Super Steel 595 tires fill out the wheelwells, and all the connectors, mud flaps and tie-down springs look perfectly 1970-spec. This is a badass little car. Flight Tested Turn everything on, hit the start button and this twerp growls to life. It sounds as if it's ready to run away and win the London to Mexico rally. And during a short drive around Dennis McCarthy's shop near the Burbank Airport, it drove great. It was raw and a little beastly, but great. But this RS1600's role in Fast & Furious 6 included a massive jump across a highway divider in the Canary Islands. And no matter how well the Escort seems to handle the epic leap in the film, in reality that's murder to any car. So the two Ford Escort RS1600s that performed the big jump were destroyed. The first, reports McCarthy, wound up on its roof. And the second landed on its wheels but its structure was pretzeled up nasty.

An Astonishing Genuine AVO Mk1 Ford Escort RS Mexico in Impeccable Condition - SOLD!
**NOW SOLD - SIMILAR CLASSIC CARS ALWAYS REQUIRED** An astonishing genuine AVO Mk1 Ford Escort RS Mexico in impeccable condition. EQUIPMENT Advanced Vehicle Operations (AVO) Type 49 body, front quarter bumpers, flared wheel arches, strengthened chassis rails, strengthened flitch plates, reinforced front suspension strut top mounting plates, rear radius rods, safety glass, anti-burst locks, black painted aluminium grille, six pod sports binnacle, heater fan, two speed wiper, courtesy light. Factory fitted options; Heated rear window. EXTERIOR This incredible enthusiast owned example is finished in Ford Daytona Yellow (code T) and the highly detailed finish to the paintwork is truly breath taking. The spotless underside enjoys the absence of underseal to showcase the incredibly straight and structurally perfect Type 49 shell with AVO workmanship laid bare for all to see. A tiny stone chip to the vent section on the front scuttle and a miniscule faint paint blemish on the roof are hardly noteworthy and certainly take none of the sensation away from this truly special Ford. The beautifully clean engine bay detail is an enthusiasts delight with all correct badges, plates and stickers clearly displayed and ready to uphold the closest scrutiny! All original trim sections, rubbers, glass and lights are immaculate and complete the showpiece appeal. An extraordinary example and very special. INTERIOR Attention to detail and correct to manufacturer specification, the interior of this RS Mexico is a credit to the dedication and resolve of the formers keepers to stay true to Ford AVO's vision and keep the car away from the often inevitable fate of modification. The original high grade Black PVC upholstery (code AA) fitted as standard is immaculate and free from wear or damage, with pristine matching door cards. All equipment housed in the flawless dashboard with padded top fascia and correct six pod binnacle operates perfectly. The boot area has the original blue jack neatly wrapped in the hessian bag resting on an impossible to source genuine boot mat. The rear parcel shelf has distorted slightly. A wonderful interior born from a devoted quest for originality and accuracy. ENGINE & TRANSMISSION The beautiful engine bay of this example is a true bonnet up crowd pleaser, undoubtedly the darling of many future classic car shows! The GT crossflow unit displays matching numbers confirming the vehicles correct heritage and identity and gas been painted blue. Expect performance of the 1660cc engine to easily match the quoted 85bhp with 0 to 60mph in 10.7 seconds and a top speed over 100mph. The original Mexico 4-speed synchromesh gearbox performs exactly as Ford intended. WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES Optional period RS Sport Alloys, as available through the Ford Dealer Special Build Programme have been refurbished and are shod in matching Michelin MXT 175/70 R13 tyres. The correct angled pressed steel spare wheel still has the original Dunlop radial ply tubeless tyre! The vacuum servo-assistance brakes run on the standard single line braking system with 9.625in front discs and 9.00in rear drums to offer ample stopping power with an assured feel. HISTORY FILE Built at Fords Advanced Vehicle Operations factory in Aveley in January 1973 this vehicle incredibly has a fully traced owner history from new and throughout just six owners. Not only this but the history file contains information on the previous owners, what they did and how they came about the car as well as letters written between them and even old photos! First registered on the 19th April 1973 to first owner Mr G Trill by Ford Main Agent The Endeavour Motor Company in Brighton, who, after two years and 27,500 miles part exchanged the car for an Audi Coupe to Romans of Woking. Mr Geoff Bishop, the second owner and a Ford Mechanic, was informed of the car by his father who worked at Romans. A letter in the file from Mr Bishop details his fond ownership memories until the sale in 1983 to his friend, Derek Horsell, who worked at the same garage. In April 1986 Mr Horsell advertised the car for sale as 'the best Mexico in the country' for £1,850 and Mr Barrie Robertson flew down from Scotland to secure the car, becoming the fourth keeper for 13 years. Mr Robertson, a bodywork specialist, fitted new front wings and panel only due to taking a dislike to the Monza wing mirrors and spot lamps that had been fitted! The car was then sold by word of mouth to an avid Ford collector in 1999, who, after a couple of short journeys, decided to commission the previous owner to carry out a full repaint in the original Daytona Yellow. The car with a mileage of 71,839 was then stored for the next ten years. The two subsequent owners are detailed in the history file including the current owners tales of becoming increasingly frustrated viewing 15 other 'genuine' AVO Mexico's before being informed of this treasure.
