Registered in June 1989, this Diamond White Ford Escort XR3i Cabriolet has had just one private owner from new. The (trade) vendor believes it was driven and serviced regularly over the first 20 years of its life, but went into storage around 2010 and only emerged again in 2020 where it was brought and registered by a dealer and again kept in dry storage.

To the best of the vendor's knowledge, this Escort has never sustained any bodywork damage. The panels appear in good order although, given the age and mileage (the odometer currently indicates 99,071 miles), there are some minor blemishes around the door shuts and sills, as well as a more noticeable scuff on the offside of the rear bumper.  The exterior plastic trims present well and the light lenses are free of damage. 14‑inch alloy wheels are fitted, which have a few blemishes but are otherwise in good order.

Inside, the original grey, blue and red patterned fabric upholstery is believed to be original and aside from some age‑related wear and fading, has no visible rips or tears. The vendor also reports some slight discolouration of the plastic trim, although the main controls and dashboard switches are in good order.    

Mechanically,  the Escort has a 1.6‑litre CVH engine of 105bhp, coupled to a five‑speed transmission, which the vendor states will be serviced by Escort specialist MSC Importers Ltd prior to handover, to ensure it is in good working order following its storage. A recent fitment is a new starter motor.

The most recent MoT was on passed on 14 October 2021 at 99,080 miles. The history folder includes the current and previous V5C, service booklet stamped up to 96,827 miles in December 2010 and most recent service invoice (including a full service in October 2021 at 99,080 miles when the cambelt was also changed). There's also the sound system booklet, previous MoT certificates, and a selection of bills from before the car's 2010 period of storage.

'Fast' Fords are much very sought after now, and this example appears solid, straight and in good mechanical order.
