1994 Ford Escort RS Cosworth On eBay

Follow Nelson

There are rare cars that are rare through attrition, availability and design. This 1994 Ford Escort Cosworth RS falls into the category of cars that were never really sold in the U.S., but you can buy it now for $26,500.

Or you can bid the car, which doesn't appear to have a reserve price set, from the starting bid of $22,500. It's an Escort RS Cosworth with the "big turbo" Weber-Marelli ECU according to the seller. The seller also lists upgrades as including a new head gasket, high-flow fuel pump and injectors, dump valve, OZ rally wheels, carbon turbo heatshield cover and front air dam, plus what every performance car needs: a K&N cone filter.

It's also seen fairly extensive maintenance over its minimal 50,000 miles, and sports a fresh set of Toyo T1-R tires. It's not trouble-free, as the air conditioning doesn't really work right, the left window gets stuck, the volt meter doesn't read, and the clutch pedal sticks "a little."

Still, regardless of the car's minor imperfections, this is a rare and radical take on the Ford Escort, with just over 7,000 built in its four-year run. Only a tiny fraction of those were grey-market imports to the U.S., and according to Bring A Trailer, this is the only one they've seen on the open market in over a year here in the U.S.

So what do you think? Time to make some room for a whale-tail Escort in your garage? Or is this doomed to re-list again? It's already been up for offer twice previously in the last 8 months, unable to meet the reserve price set by the seller.

  1. There was one for sale here in California not to long ago and to shift it the owner resorted to having a web page to list it. Even then it took him well over a year to sell.
    The majority of these cars were all imported by a company called Sun Motorsports, I believe. They also converted Renault's and various other great European hot hatches....

    Bad stuff?

  2. First of be very wary of cars ( or anything ) being sold on ebay, a lot of scams are sprouting up lately mostly based in the African or Spanish region, they are basically copying the real and actual seller's profile and passing it of as their own.

    It's a good point when purchasing or investing your money on something really big that you get to be there and see the goods yourself, in case of items sold on ebay though you run that risk..
    Do be careful my friends.

  3. I love it! An Escort Cosworth is a hot car, let's just face it! We had the 88hp Escort or the "bad ass" 117hp Escort GT.....and then there's this....I want one!
