1971 Ford Escort BDA.

YKP 877J is one of the earliest known remaining examples of an original RS1600 BDA 'Twin-Cam' and has been subject to a full bare metal restoration circa 2011. A photographic record is included in the sale of the car and clearly illustrates the painstaking attention to detail involved in this car's restoration. Finished in Sebring Red, a slightly orange colour exclusive to the RS1600 and Capri RS3100.

The car is as good underneath as it is on top, while all shut lines appear excellent and the car sits on its original steel wheels. With the emphasis on authenticity, all replacement parts, where possible, were genuine Ford NOS (New Old Stock) and the period detail is difficult to fault. The rear chrome bumper still even has the correct "Ford" sticker on it. With a correct unmarked interior, and correct dash and instruments.

The BDA also sounds very well.
We understand that the car has a current odometer reading of around 29,000 miles but it has only covered just over 100+ miles in the last few years since restoration. YKP 877J is beautifully presented
