You thought there be more escorts lol

Im not surprised tho however are you talking S1 or S2 RST or combined? Id be surprised if there 3.5k RST in one piece. I reckon a lot of the sorn ones are in bits in boxes or rotting shells.

I am assuming with How many left it will be S1 S2 combined.

 

and yes your right. I know of two that will never be complete cars again, almost bare shell stripped and "forgotten" about, can't get the parts or can't get them for the right price etc

 

I'm sure the real number is a lot lower. but its still a large figure. its one of those cars I wish I had never sold.

 

I popped the same post up on Facebook and had someone give me a lesson about how this doesn't mean the 220 are more valuable  :rofl:

 

post has nothing to do with value. and I never mentioned value lol. I just thought it was an interesting set of numbers in comparison.

 

the 220 is still showing a downward trend at quite a rate. wonder where it will stabilise out.

And that right there is why I dont use fb/Instagram etc! The point was more RS escorts in existence than 220s!

I would like to think they level off soon, its a case of how many get broken for parts as worth more in bits than a complete running car, once the clutch goes that probably put most people off repairing them unless they an enthusiast. Oh and probably 500 get written off by insurance companies over next few years in accidents ?

Im not a massive fan of it to be fair.

I have set up an Instagram for the car now.

I enjoy looking at the facts and figures and just discussing the cars in general. Its nice to speculate that one day they will be worth something more than they are now. However I own the car because I love it and enjoy it

Agreed

The mint show cars have their place in the bill, but is it really that much fun to own? Kept under cover all the time, maybe taken out twice a month for a spin, probably never see 4000rpm at a push.

I'm all for using them, to me they are more than machine, they all have their own quirks and personalities.

Back on topic though, I'd love an old Mk4 Escort, they were all about when I was a nipper and the RS Turbo in red was a sight to behold.....maybe one day rodders 😁

Could it be down to more RS Turbos were originally sold?

Back before all these emissions and MPG figures were really an issue.

With the ST220, weren't something like around 6-7k in total only ever sold. Can imagine many Escorts hit the road back in the day
