BODYWORK & INTERIOR
For a car that is 31 years old this example is in almost immaculate condition with very good period correct black Recaro leather seats that bring a sense of nostalgia to any car enthusiast.
The bodywork is in very good condition and the paintwork (Ebony Black metallic) has just been polished and ceramic coated making it almost as good as the day it left the factory.
Internally this car benefits from a manual sunroof, which means there are no electrical problems to worry about.
The factory fitted 15×7 inch RS Sierra Cosworth multi-spoke ‘Shark Tooth’ alloy wheels are exceptionally clean as shown in the pictures.
A lovely example of a classic ‘fast Ford’ which enjoys ‘subtle’ performance modifications to enhance a fabulous driving experience. This example is one not to be missed and can be driven away with no issues by the new owner.
According to the owner it gets more appreciative looks than his Jaguar E-Type and Bullitt Mustang combined!
