Another press car up,for sale 19000 miles £80 k wanted location Ireland,making out there part of fords history but in reality been thrashed round by journalists, I remember years ago people commenting on the fact they should not be classed as a genuine Rs 500 as not part of the 500 special examples I.e some parts missing of the press cars. And a PR number plaque .
whats people’s thoughts on them

Hi all how is everybody, I’ve not been on for a while, over the past few weeks I’ve been thinking about selling my 500 and having another escort Cosworth, I’ve put a few wanted posts out there that I’m looking for a mint low miler escort and had a couple of minters offered to me, also had a few offers on my 500, a trader has offered me 80k which is a great offer but not sure if I’m doing the right thing, the 8000 mile escort I’ve been offered is special but will I regret it 🤔

Keep wondering what my 500 is worth 8700 miles or something around that , haven’t been down to see it for months , and also an immaculate underside, 8k Escos must be worth some cash to buy.you haven’t used that 500 much as it had 12k when you bought it if I remember so if the same applies to Escos then will you use it with such low miles,80k is a brilliant offer though.

Not incredibly low no 13k, think it’s more the red seats and the immaculate underside
that really is a great offer then,the dealer would have to sell it on for at least £85k and rs focus's of that price just dont seem to be selling at all.
id be tempted to snap his hand off and forget the es cos and go for something else entirely lol

No not been used much at all, owned it 6 years and done around 1500 miles I think and 1400 of that was in the first year. The escort i was hoping to get for similar money, he’s started at 90k but hoping to do a deal at around 80k

The way he was talking I think he was going to sit on it abit because he mentioned a few times it won’t be long until they are 6 figure car. I’d only swap it for something that’s not going loose any money and I think a mint low miler escort will only go up in value

i dont think any of them will climb any higher now, you only need to look at all the heritages up at 75-80 that are now starting to come down again, surely nobody in the rightmind would fork out £100,000 for a focus o_O

100k is some threshold to get to , I expect if it was achieved that so many owners would cash out and flood the market then bringing the price down, the 100k Escos was tried at 3 pines garage and didnt go to plan

Who knows We said that about escorts and sierras 20 years and it’s happened, the heritage is 2 new of a car what 3 years old but will creep back up one day, the focus Rs 500 is a lot rarer car than a Sierra or a Escort and there are only 51 more of them than the heritage.

You got to think there’s only 101 of these out there that’s why you very rarely see them for sale, didn’t a white Escos sell for over 100k at auction last year?
