Condition of Car:
Classic Car Sale Status:
1989 Ford Sierra Sapphire Cosworth. This car has had fortunes spent including a recent recon engine. Everything underneath has either been replaced or refurbished. The car is unfortunately a CAT C from 1998. It had damage to the rear o/s quarter panel and doors on the same side. If you are going to get your panties in a bunch about it being a CAT C then its probably not for you. If you want a very good solid car, which someone has done all the hard work, at not much more than entry level money then read on. This car was probably worth about 2K when it was damaged hence the reason the insurance decided not to repair at the time. From what we can understand the car was in storage for a number of years the shell was repaired and painted and then the owner we got it from put it back together and spent a right few quid on it. (I hope his wifes not reading this).
Body - Sapphire Cosworth shell. previously damaged on rear offside quarter and doors , (pics at the end of description). Car was repaired and painted. Evidence of a couple of repairs underneath in the past but look well done. Car is solid from front to back, underneath is painted body colour. Rear arches are like the day the came out the factory. Original Ford wings. Paint is very nice in Crystal Blue. looks a wee bit darker in the pics but it was a dull day when I took them. Front bumper looks to have been modified similar to a 500 one and a lower splitter added.
Interior - Good dash, door cards and seats. Cloth seats, not sure if they were the originals or been replaced. Headlining has been sorted at some point to sort the sagging. Steering wheel looks like its been replaced.
Mechanics - When last owner built the car he wasnt happy with the engine he put in it so he put in a recon engine. This has covered 200 miles only and will need a further 300 or so running in before you thrash the life out of it. He uprated it to run coil packs, and a link ECU. The car is set at standard just over 200 bhp but is capable of running around 260 on its current setup.Car starts, runs and drives well, and is one of these quietest Ive heard. It has had the following items renewed. Shocks, struts, springs all round, adjustable TCAs, brake lines fuel lines, rear arms, fuel pump and more. It has fancy cam pulleys but these are for show as the cams are standard. Rear springs are lower than standard and really need put back to standard Cosworth height as its too low.
Wheels - Recently refurbed rims with Falken Tyres which have done next to no miles.
