Known History

A legend in its own lifetime, just 7,145 examples of the 2-litre turbocharged, 4WD Escort RS Cosworth were made. An ex-Jaguar and Rolls-Royce engineer, the vendor bought chassis 93225 new as a retirement present to himself. Having previously owned the sister car to Jeremy Clarkson's Escort Cossie, he determined that `N313 GEH' would be used sparingly and kept unmodified. Finished in Dark Aubergine with Raven leather upholstery, the Ford's only optional extra was a full-size spare wheel while the longest journey it has tackled was a run from Cornwall to John O'Groats. After taking chassis 93225 off the road in September 2007, the vendor treated it to a (second) cambelt change plus new oil/fuel/air filters, spark plugs, coolant and brake fluid etc. Kept in a heated garage thereafter but run-up to temperature every 6-8 weeks, `N313 GEH' has covered just 9,000 miles from new. A true timewarp, this one owner Cossie is MOT'd until June 2015.
