THE CAR: This very special 1987 RS500 (No 53) is one of only 500 RHD Ford Sierra RS500's ever made. Chassis number GG39056 was first registered to Mr John Mitchell of Coventry by then the Official RS dealer, Brown and White (Coventry) Limited. Finished in Black with Grey cloth, it left the Tickford Newport Pagnall Aston Martin factory in August 1987 having arrived there on 22nd June 1987, to be delivered by Ford to Brown and White (Coventry) Limited. Recently the RS underwent a painstakingly sympathetic restoration with classic car specialist's RS Classic's in North Sheilds, West Yorkshire. The result of their work is a magnificently restored RS500 which now presents as new in a time-warp condition. Since new, the RS500 has had a total of 6 owners. The last recorded owner (Mr Young) purchased the vehicle in December 2004 and sold it only last year in March 2016 to RS Classic's. From start to finish the restoration has been photographed and documented providing a detailed portfolio for the newowner.Within the large history file includes the original service book, original handbook, service bills/receipts and virtually every single MOT certificate to date. We believe this to be one of very few perfectly restored RS500's with original parts and interior resulting in a near perfect example as if it was June 1987. This lovely Cosworth RS500 is about as close to original as you will ever find and is an absolute must for the astute collector or enthusiast, as well as being tremendous fun to drive. A solid investment as sport modern classic's of the Eighties and Nineties are becoming increasingly sought after and are some of the fastest appreciating cars in the current market. HISTORY: Disappointingly slow sales of the distinctively shaped Ford Sierra after its introduction in 1982, suggested that a serious marketing boost was required, and it was the obvious choice to become the platform for Ford's new competition aspirations. It was rear-wheel drive, had good aerodynamics, albeit beingprone tolift at high speeds and it was available as a three-door. A wind-tunnel developed body kit and rear spoiler would sort out the lift issues but, more importantly, Ford still needed to build 5,000 units for motorsport homologation, somewhat worrying when Stuart Turner's initial approach to the dealer network came back with an estimate that indicated that they could sell around 1,500 units! The successful eventual sales record is of course history. Ford went on to sell 5,545 three-door cars including the RS500, of which only 500 were built, and the Cosworth engine also found its way into nearly 30,000 Ford Sierra Saloons (Cosworth 3dr, Sapphire 2wd, and 4wd). The Sierra Cosworth comfortably exceeded Ford's best expectations and it went on to become one of the most successful 'Touring Car' racers of all time, winning races all over the world.
