1990 Superb car, original and standard. Genuine 48k. For Sale
I have owned this car for 10 years and am only the 4th owner. I am a long term member of the rsoc and bought the car through the club as it was highly recommended to me. I had been looking for ages to find a totally original and standard car with full history. I wanted the late 90 spec so this fitted the bill perfectly, having been registered in August 1990. When I saw this one it certainly didn't disappoint, and still doesn't as it has been pampered throughout it's life and it shows.
I originally had one of these back in 1986 when they first came out and absolutely loved it. Unfortunately I had to sell it to fund my first home but promised myself I would get another one day when I could afford it. Eventually after looking at loads, and lots of basket cases at the time, I found this beauty. Paid over the odds but she was worth it for condition, low owners and huge history and has been cossetted ever since.
The car is in amazing condition, never welded, original panels, pdi stickers on the boot floor. Original, not refurbished, date stamped wheels in lovely condition with 4 matching Avon tyres all with min 5mm tread all round. The spare is original with a original dunlop tyre still fitted. Jack and brace all in place. The wings still have the rubber stays and are date stamped with original factory welds which are still like new.
The paintwork was treated to a professional detail in 2018 (£700!) to remove any swirl marks and is stunning. Even the original factory exhaust is still fitted. The interior is standard with a mint original steering wheel, fuel computer, velour Ford mats (as ordered by the customer and detailed on the order form) I have also fitted rubber Ford waffle mats to protect these and the carpet which is immaculate).
The seats are like new with no sagging or wear, they too have been covered with rsoc seat covers to keep them pristine and the car has been garaged throughout it's life so no sun fade. It looks like the rear seats have never been sat in, and the seatbelts sit perfectly. The sunroof rails are perfect with no corrosion, another weak point on these cars.
The engine starts up perfectly with no smoke or revving issues, goes into all gears smoothly and no crunching in reverse gear. The turbo sounds superb and spools up effortlessly, this car will bring a smile to your face every time you drive it. Brakes, although dated technology by today's standards, are effective and pull straight. Discs, pads and rear cylinders have been changed during my ownership.
It comes with an amazing history file from brand new to current day with original service invoices from Haynes Ford plus subsequent frequent services over recent years and stacks of mot certificates to warrant the mileage. Original stamped service book up to date, wallet, handbooks, alarm and radio code for the original radio cassette still fitted. 2 original keys with the dealer fobs, original etched glass all round, security stickers. Original dealer rear window sticker, dealer tax disc and dealer plates.Hpi clear. Details of each of the 3 previous owners is present in documentation form. Even a letter from Stormont Ford remains in the file along with the salesman's card. I have old and current V5's on the file to confirm each owner.
The engine is totally standard and has been maintained regardless of cost and of the low miles this car has covered. In my ownership it has had 3 cambelt and waterpump changes with tensioners replaced and the correct oil, genuine ford oil filters and plugs etc all carried out by rs specialists.
The car runs and drives without fault and has been dry stored, covered with a soft tailored cover, on a battery conditioner and regularly run up and wheels moved during my ownership and for most if it's life judging by it's conditon and history. This hasn't been modified or raced, and has been very fortunate to have 4 very particular and mature owners.
It has just been Mot'd, with one advisory of sill covers fitted (this had been remarked on throughout it's life as they were factory fitted) but never an advisory for corrosion throughout it's entire life on the mot history. The servicing is all up to date so it needs nothing.
It is in storage so I will need notice to move her and a dry day as I will not drive the car in the wet. Genuine enquiries only, no dreamers. It is not a cheap car but the condition and history speaks for itself. Would ideally go to a collector or someone who can continue to store the car in the correct environment and enjoy shows etc as she is ready to go and be used. These cars are shooting up in value as investors are putting their money into these and good cars are always sought after and very rare to find with this mileage, condition and full history.
Sadly I just don't have the time to use her and so have made the decision to let her go to a new home and give up our storage unit.
Definitely no part exchange or swaps. Please call me to discuss, if I was buying a car at this price I would expect to talk to someone in person not by text, any 'best price mate' texts will be ignored.
I have plenty of recent photos I can send to GENUINE potential buyers but please don't waste my time or yours by enquiring if you don't have the funds to buy, the price is firm.A deposit will be required once the car has been seen and an agreement made to buy. Balance by bank transfer upon collection. I cannot arrange delivery but can recommend someone through the rsoc if required.
