Re: mk1 rs2000's

I thought the Mk1 RS2000's were the same body as the Mk1 Lotus Escorts... And that the body shell had some strengthening over the standard shells. CK49 seems to ring a bell in the back of my mind as a prefix or a chassis code...

Re: mk1 rs2000's

I think the Radiator Support Panel was different like the Mk II Escorts with the 2 Litre Engine as the 2 Engine is longer than the Kent 1300 / 1600.

Be a bit careful here - I know with the Lotus Cortina MK1 several panels were aluminium - not sure if the did that with the Escort twin cam.
I cant see why the body would be different - apart from the aformentioned engine size. I'd be surprised if they sold em over here, but I'm a pom and I'm 27 so I know fa really.Why do you ask?
My dad used to rally a mk1 Cortina GT, then mk2 Lotus and knows shitloads about Fords of that era - if youve got specifics I can pass em on.

I'm not exactly sure how many were imported, but I'm pretty sure Ford Australia did import very limited numbers of Mk I Escort RS2000s.

Ahhh, thought so.

I had an idea they did two batches of imported RS200s. The original MK I RS 2000 and a small number of Mk II RS 2000s in the mid 70's before local production of the RS 2000 started in the late 70's.
