A truly delightful and original 1985 Ford Escort 1.6 Ghia with just 22278 miles from new in the care of only two previous keepers. It is still completely factory standard, just as it rolled off the production line some 32 years ago!

Complete with a very comprehensive service history, cars like this are getting ever more difficult to find. The interior is as close to new as you will ever find and the un-cracked dashboard is just superb.

Finished in Strato Silver Metallic, this lovely example has never been welded and still has its original battery tray, wheel arches etc. Supplying dealer number plates front and rear are still in place. The car is completely straight and free from any dents and dings. The paintwork still retains a deep and consistent shine throughout. All the lights, glass and bumper corners are free from damage. A genuinely lovely example and a great starter classic for anyone that is wanting to join the classic car scene.

The Navy Savoy interior is just superb throughout. The seats are in incredible condition and showing virtually no signs of wear. The door cards are unmarked. The carpets are very clean and damage free and still retain a deep pile. The dashboard is remarkable and completely free from any cracks. The original radio cassette is still in place. The interior is a lovely place to be and is like stepping back to 1985!

Having benefitted from a recent mechanical recommissioning, the following works have been carried out. New cam belt and water pump, full service, new clutch and four new tyres. With a new MOT until June 2018, the car is ready to go.
