para144's 1973 Ford Escort RS2000 Mk1
Its a 1973 Mk1 RS2000, I've owned about 12 years and I use it for Tarmac stage rallies, Welsh road rallies, weekend road use and an the odd trackday.

Its has to meet road rally regs so it still has back seats & carpets etc. It also can only run carbs with 2 chokes for 4 cylinders so I use 'Split 48's' rather than twin carbs. These are twin 48 Dellortos machined in half to leave 2 chokes, these provide better torque than a single standar 48 etc.

Its prepped similar to 'Motoring News Championship' spec and just needs the livery covered up for road rallies. I have used it for historic events but it no longer meets the historic regs due to having the wrong brakes & gearbox these days
