In Sebring Red, this is a fine example of the last model to be introduced to the AVO production range.

  • The RS2000 was the last car to be introduced into the AVO range, in June 1973
  • Its performance was almost comparable to the complex RS1600, but with the same reliability and ease of maintenance as the Mexico
  • This is a genuine AVO/Aveley car built using the strengthened Type-49 bodyshell
  • Powered by the Blue Oval's 100bhp, 1993cc SOHC four-cylinder 'Pinto' engine
  • This superb example has formed part of the Mike Bell Collection for the last eleven years
  • Complete with new front and rear seats which require fitting
  • An increasingly desirable and much sought after RS, rarely seen in such unmolested condition
  • Viewing is highly recommended and encouraged to appreciate the quality and potential of this Classic Ford
