Ford Escort Mk2 1.1 with only 9400 miles from new. Genuine 1 owner car in Cordoba Biege which has been dry stored since 1989 until last week when we rescued it. The car was bought new from Days of Lowestoft in September 1989 by a Mr Denis Butler who we got the car from. We have the original bill of sale here showing a price of £3100.95 The car was used for short trips until 1989 when it was put in the garage with just over 9000 miles on it. We have the old MOTs from 82 when it would have had its first MOT till 1989 when it was taken off the road. We have the spare key for the car. Still has the original jack in its bag in the boot and original boot carpet.
Interior - The Interior is totally original and mint as you would expect. Steering wheel, pedal rubbers, seats, carpet etc all back up the mileage. It still has that new smell inside.
Mechanics - All totally standard as it left the factory. We have fitted a new fuel pump as the old one was not lifting the fuel, fresh fuel and have had it fired up briefly. The engine was free as it was dry stored and started no problem. We plan to service it this week before running it again. Other than that we want toi leave it exactly as it is so the new owner can decide what they want to do with it.
Body - All original panels as you would expect , totally rot free underneath and solid throughout. Spare wheel well is like the day it left the factory. Externally the car has picked up a few minor scars from storage / car park dings. There is evidence of a bit paintwork on corners of front wings and osr lower quarter. Personally i would leave it exactly as it is but again thats up to the new owner.
Wheels - Original steels which we have had tidied up as the had a few spots of surafce rust. New tyres also fitted as old ones were cracked and unserviceable. Spare wheel has never been on i dont think.
This is a very rare car in this condition and mileage as its original and unrestored. Yes we all wish it was an RS or a Mexico but nobody bought them to go to the shops once a week. Please feel free top come and see the car . We have a ramp so you can look underneath. Delivery can be arranged if required. Please ask for a quote.
Any questions please ask or call 07879 557668.
