Ford Rally Cars

Postby IFHP » Sat Nov 24, 2012 3:13 am

This thread is for Ford Rally Cars

RS 200, Escort RS 1800 and Transit support van. All by IXO.

Ford rally cars and support van parked on the book "Boreham: The 40-year story of Ford's motorsport dream factory" by Graham Robson

Ford RS 200 by IXO by IFHP97, on Flickr

The model and the real item as seen in February 1986 in Sweden. The driver is Kalle Grundel.

Image
MK II Ford Escort RS 1800 by IXO by IFHP97, on Flickr

This car was rallied by legendary driver Hannu Mikkola in 1979.

Image
Mk I Ford Transit by IXO by IFHP97, on Flickr

This model appears to be a very cool looking van that never was. The Transit is a 1965-70 model with the paint scheme of Ford's rally cars for 1979. The photo behind the models shows Ford's fleet of rallying Escorts in 1979 plus a fleet of Boreham's support vans. Note that the vans in th picture are different in a number of ways from the model. They are MK IIs with dual rear tires and a different paint scheme.

Notice how oversized the IXO Ford RS 200 is. Nice model but too big when compared to other 1:43 scale cars.

A nice set, which I understand was built as a promo give away to those subscribing to a British rallying magazine.

Didn't realise that the support van was also an IXO. I like it, and it looks decent. Just a shame the prototype doesn't quite seem to exist again.

Theres no FWD car in that line up of Fords......Escort is RWD and the Focus and RS200 are 4wd ;)

K1w1taxi (or anybody), who make the 1970 Escort World Cup Rally winner? I'm just reading a book about that race and thinking that I "need" a model of that car.

Trofeu are the only maker of "FEV 1H" that I know of , but as with all Trofeu Escorts , its not a particularly good model .

Yeah, but what can you do Gary? 43 years later and STILL no one else has modelled this car, nor any of it's team mates :( Would love an updated version and it's 3rd place sister.

Thanks. I found only one on e-bay. It was selling for a reasonable price BUT the crash bar was missing. It may take awhile.

I totally agree with you Lee....such a significant car in Fords rally history should have been modelled by a decent manufacturer .

Trofeu have done some great liveries in their Mk1 and Mk2 Escorts and I understand that their versions are old castings but they really are poorly shaped and inaccurate representations of an iconic car .
Trofeu Sierra Cosworths used to be the same , but at least they had a go of improving that casting . Maybe its time they did the same for the Escorts

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.
