Early mk1 Fiesta in completely original and unmolested condition. Iconic Ford Nordic blue paint made famous by the mk1 escort but rare to find on a Fiesta. This car was also treated with zeibart coating by Ford before before delivery. The folder I have for the car includes the original bill of sale, acknowledgement letter, Ford booklets and Ford invoice for the zeibart coating.
Upon purchasing the car I removed the carpets and checked the floors inside and out and everything is un-welded and solid.
The car has recently been serviced and had new suspension components fitted all around.
The car is MOTed and on the road, used it for days out here and there and it really is fantastic fun to be in. The car starts and drives great, no rattles and everything works. I recently had great fun going to Wales and back (from kent) in this car, no problems at all.
Age related points worthy of mention, although really not much for a 35 year old Fiesta:
- The tyres have plenty of tread but have signs of drying out due to their age. They do however hold pressure fine. - The feedback from the brake pedal is not as assertive as it should be. The brake shoes on the rear likely require adjustment. - There are some signs of surface rust in places and some small bubbling on the top of the passenger wing - The fabric on top of the rear seat is sun damaged
Thanks very much. I had a truck dropping a classic off down south today and wanted to bring the Fiesta back. I have missed that slot now as I have been trying to get a response for a couple of days which is rather odd. However, all the same, I remain very interested and would like to buy but need to make contact with the seller. Appreciate your help.
Love this - my first car was a W reg 957cc L in Gold. Happy memories of screaming around with mates in 87/88 as a teenager. Quality stuff.
Cheers mate, I grew up in mk1 and mk2 Fiestas, I bought a black mk2 XR2 when I was 15, broke it down and built it back up with my Dad for a first car. I was at school all day and working in Asda most nights to save up for the (at the time, to a 16 year old) eye watering £1500 insurance. This was at a time when 17 year olds could insure a Ka for £700. Having worked so hard to build and pay for it I took really good care of it and much to my amusement all my school mates who predicted I'd kill myself in a 1.6 for a first car nearly all ended up writing off their "sensible" cars driving them like idiots whilst I cruised around in XR2 I'd built and paid for myself. Taught me a lot of life lessons. Great memories!
