1981 Ford Escort 1300 Ghia MK3. SOLD

Ford Escort 1300 Ghia.

5 Door.

Arctic Blue Metallic with dark Grey velour trim.

April 1981.

Very low mileage example, with 1 owner from new and continuous history.

Quite simply a stunning original untouched example.

Supplied new by the Falles Motor Works main Ford dealership of Jersey in the Spring of 1981, this very early example of a MK 3 Escort was supplied new to its one and only owner, is now being offered for sale as the original owner has ceased driving. Supplied to 'Ghia' specification, this has the extremely luxurious interior and according to the brochure, fitted with the 'reclining Durham and Crushed Velour trimmed seats, head restraints with headrest pads.'

Optional extras fitted are metallic paint, Ford fire extinguisher mounted in the engine bay, electric front windows and electric aerial.

Having spent all of its life on Jersey, this has benefitted the car enormously for during the winter months, no salt is used on the roads, sparing the car any corrosion underneath and with a speed limit is 45mph, mechanically the car is yet 'run in'.

All duties have been paid upon bringing the car into mainland UK, and the car is in the UK at my house.
As for registration so it will have a 'W' reg age related plate, the registration process is extremely straight forward and I am able to help in this matter.

The overall condition of the car is as seen in the pictures, an original engine bay, with no mess whatsoever, starts first time, stops first time, just right. An un marked interior, untouched, fully funtioning, put the radio on you could be listening to 'that' Royal Wedding, that cricket match from Headingly, or Spurs winning the FA cup, its that fresh ........
The boot compartment appears unused, with the original Goodyear Grand Prix 'S' tyre still on the spare.
Bodily the car has no rust, and I mean no rust or dents, completely correct in all aspects, it is a vision!

To sum up, this is as good as you are lightly to find, a gem of an example of the 1981 Car of the Year!

Shipping can be arranged both nationally and Internationally at cost.
