Corgi Ford Escort RS Turbo 1990 Spec - Mercury Grey VA14304 1:43

Car 1:43 Scale

The Escort RS Turbo (RST) modelled has now been fully restored by the current owner, Wrexham-based Ted Beckett. He purchased the car in August 2019 but has actually known of it for many years. In 1997 Ted took his close friend Lee Cartwright to view the car which was then for sale in Nantwich. Lee bought it and it quickly became a local hero car in Whitchurch because of its performance, it having been modified by Well Lane Turbos in 1993 and fitted with a larger Escort Cosworth turbocharger, charge cooler, over-bored engine and re-map; achieving 255bhp.

It disappeared off the fast Ford scene when Lee, regrettably, had to sell it in 2008. In August 2019 Ted was called by a friend saying he’d been approached by someone in Telford selling an RST. Ted was actually planning to buy a Golf GTI that day but it had fallen through, so he had a trailer and cash. He phoned the vendor, realised immediately it was Lee’s old car and said, ‘I’m on my way’.

Unfortunately, nine years in a leaking garage had seen it deteriorate badly and Ted fully admits he’d have walked away had it been any other car. Amazingly, after nine years slumber it started as soon as a battery was connected. Later that day Lee had an emotional reunion with his old car and was pleased to see it return to Wrexham to be restored.

The products arrived in a very solid box, were superbly packed allowing good protection with minimal material used.
Fabulous! Five stars!
Shame about Parcel Force delivery though. Tracked to be delivered on one day. Not delivered. No reason given. Arrived a day late when it wasn't expected. Parcel Force zero stars!

I found these guys through their ebay page about a year ago and I really like their selection of products. Slickshifts appear to stock the better quality stuff such as gyeon, angelwax, soft99, ik sprayers. Having gone through so many different brands I have to say between Gyeon and soft99 make up the majority of my kit and these guys are one of the best suppliers of these brands so if I need to top up on stuff, I just come straight here now :) Prices are great and delivery is very quick too. Keep up the good work!
