About Us

I have been in the motor trade since 1972 and for 20+ years I have run my own company. Since 1998 this was CG Trading in Hove, East Sussex, specialising for the 5 years in Smart cars & 4x4s, along with some more unusual vehicles. We have recently moved to a new location in the countryside of West Sussex & currently are specialising in Alfa Romeo GTVs & Spiders. Viewing is by appointment.


Ford Escort Mk2 RS2000 spaceframe Super Saloon race car. Originally thought to be 1 of 5 Zakspeed factory chassis(& featured as such in at least 2 specialist car magazines) spare & unraced but now, after extensive research, thought to be Walter Robertson's 1978 championship winning chassis built by John Robinson Racing Services, who also built Nick Whiting's spaceframe chassis. Further investigation into authenticity currently being carried out. A 2nd chassis plate reading 'LDK01RR' is also present.

Designed & built 1977 for Super Saloons which later became the ThunderSaloon/Silhouette Sports Saloon race series.

Video of actual engine on test bench:

Centre page photo feature + 3 page article in December 2000 issue of 'Performance Ford' magazine, also featured in Cars & Car Conversions circa 1987, both referred to it as a Zakspeed.

Available on vehicles under 6 years old, and with less than 60,000 miles recorded, a 3 month or 3,000 mile (whichever the sooner) warranty with me personally not a third party 'mechanical insurance company'. After this period I am still available to help and advise. Over the years I have found that this works very well. A 'no warranty discount' can sometimes be negotiated prior to a purchase.
