For some reason, we quite like the idea of an Escort RS Cosworth Replica, so every now and then when one pops up, we’ll blog about it.
(You can see all the other posts in this blog series by clicking here) Seen one for sale? Tell us about it and we’ll feature it on the blog!
Here’s one that doesn’t look too bad. With a bit of work, it could be a good little replica. Price seems reasonable, good replicas can be somewhere between £4-6k depending on how well it’s been done, or more, if it’s REALLY good.
(NOTE a little while after this blog was written, the eBay listing ended with the winning bid at £4100)
