Rare Nouveau Red
Stunning Investment RS

K146 FTW - An Iconic British Classic
First registered and pre delivery inspected by Rates Ford in Grays, Essex
on 12.07.1993. This may be among the very last of these models UK registered
and is finished in the rare Nouveau Red. The service history is wholly
comprehensive inclusive of all mot records and historic tax discs. Being
owned by a Ford aficionado it has been stored with a great deal of sympathy
and used carefully, which is of course the secret to classic car ownership.

Factory standard in every detail with only the addition of an immobiliser
for added security and a fruitier exhaust. HPi clean in all respects.
Matching numbers to all chassis plates and stamps, genuine & unmolested of
which there are very few around, immaculate bodywork untouched interior,
original stereo and amp, original airbox and cambelt cover, original amber
indicator lenses, spare alloy, and tools, front and rear number plates and
rear window decal etc etc.
Complete Ford book pack, with all relevant supplied driver handbooks, audio
manuals, radio code and rare original service booklet. There is also every
mot from early 90s onwards plus a host of historic bills dating back to birth
date. The preservation of all the above is top of the shelf.

Service History - 18 Stamps
Unusual to find an old Ford with all the book pack manuals and service
booklet, though present here. The most recent test expired April 22 and
has been stored since. A new test will be completed upon sale, interested
parties will note how clean and mot history is logged, there have been no
advisories of any note in many years.

The exterior presents beautifully, the underside is as new, inner doors, door
rubbers, sills, under engine. It’s never been undersealed so it’s a transparent
car with nothing to hide. All areas are beautiful.

On The Road
The mint condition inside and out continues with the wheels moving, it drives
perfect, the engine is so smooth and quiet, gearbox is nice and tight selecting
gears smoothly with no crunchies rattles or wines. The modest bhp figure is not
to be sneered at, there is lightness and agility to the car, it lifts up and
flies when you floor it. I have driven and owned many Cosworth’s, I don’t
recall one that drove so sweet on the road, it’s just been properly looked
after and feels sharp and box fresh...

This is a true collector‘s piece and a rare example of an unmolested original
Cosworth finished in a desirable colour with the preferable period leather Recaros.
Its a low owners/miles car with provenance, perfect condition with no cover
ups or dodgy history and total originality, you will struggle to find better.
The values continue to climb with genuine RS models continuing to pile on value.
The reality is that proper standard cars are super thin on the ground with many
simply not coming to the market anymore.
