Ford RS500 Cosworth right-hand drive RS500 Delivered through Reg Vardy Ltd (still wearing it's original plates and screen sticker) to its first owner, Cameron Hall Developments Ltd, in August 1987. It remained with its first owner until August 1990 when it was purchased by a local man in Huddersfield. In his ownership, the car led a cossetted life and usage was kept to a minimum, mainly by his Wife through the week and the odd weekend run. The family owned and cherished the car for 28 years! Sadly the owner fell ill and passed away and hence the majority of the history file is not currently present.In November 2016, at which point the car had covered 35,822 miles, it received a new fuel pump, spark plugs and engine oil service.This year the car had all the callipers refurbished (stickling slightly from being stood, a new timing belt, water pump, head gasket and a full service merely as a precaution to make sure the car is ready for sale.The current odometer reading of 35,909 miles is warranted and correct, which correlates with its overall good unrestored honest condition.The cassette holder still houses the 1980s cassets and the 1980s fuel membership cards.Supplied with a UK V5c, a full 12 months MOT and a RS500 brochure, various receipts, and booklets, these 1980s Fast Fords are becoming increasingly sought after and interest shows no signs of abating anytime soon.The service history may yet turn up, But the car is to be bought without. we have managed to find a genuine original RS500 un stamped service book.The MOT history is online and the MOT station the previous owner always used was across from the old ford dealership which is no more unfortunately.The car has a non original stainless exhaust system (replacement original exhausts are available) Bilstein suspension dampers (Again stock items available to buy but these are stock setup but better quality and ride)The car drives as good as you are going to get for a 1980s sports car. Tight and precise with no unwanted noises or wines.The underside of the car is solid and original. It's not coated in thick under seal hiding anything, it's dry and honest.The last MOT was done by the garage who knew the car the MOT inspector was an ex ford technician from the old dealership and commented on how good the car was in all the common problem areas. Mainly due to it being garaged all its life.The original Ford Sierra RS Cosworth was the first Ford to wear the Cosworth badge In total 5,545 cars were produced - of which 500 were sent to Aston Martin Tickford for conversion to the Sierra 'RS500 Cosworth'. If the RS Cosworth was a homologation car, the RS500 was an evolution special, Once Ford had built the requisite 5,000 RS Cosworths, Group A rules allowed an upgraded 'evolution' model to be launched. This could carry changes focused on improving its racing potential, provided Ford sold 10% of the original number as road cars, hence the 500. The RS500 was announced in July 1987 and had a mechanically uprated Cosworth engine (more similar to the one to be used in competition), with power boosted to 224bhp, upgraded brakes, modified bodywork and the caché of being hand-assembled - the RS500 really is the ultimate 1980's Fast Ford! Indeed, during the model’s 30th anniversary year in 2017, the RS500 was named the ‘Ultimate Cosworth’ by one of the UK’s biggest one-make car shows.
