1989 Escort XR3i Cabriolet 22 year hist file + all MOTs For Sale

A strong contender for the desirable Cabriolet variant of the iconic Escort XR3i in remarkable original specification; only exception are the upgraded Recaro front seats from the RS Turbo model, taking 4 years to source a pair that were both matching Daytona trim and also in excellent condition.

Regular maintenance has included fluid and oil/filter changes, new shock absorbers, new brake shoes/pads, new battery, new front indicator units and side repeaters, ignition refurbishment (distributor cap /oil seal /rotor / spark plugs / leads, etc).

Professional garage work: top-end engine rebuild, with complete new camshaft, hydraulic lifters, valve stem oil seals, a new mohair electric hood and cable tension set (fitted by Aldridge Trimmers as featured on T.V. Car S.O.S) , car's original 14” Cosworth Lattice alloys professionally refurbished and retaining all "89" Ford casting marks. New tyres fitted and are as new. Replacements of Timing Belt & tensioner (Gates), complete coolant system overhaul with all new parts: water pump, thermostat, radiator, fuel & temperature gauges. Replacement standard exhaust and brand new oil sump pan & gasket.

Options: extra hood cover, with no rips or missing poppers, a genuine Ford RS dealer stamped optional boot spoiler, working electric windows, electrically operated roof, unused cigarette lighter, a face off Sony CD/MP3 player. For the Blue oval fans it still has many factory original features eg. working LED roof clock, Carello headlights, original audio speakers and all the glass, including the heated front screen (though works intermittently).

It comes with an unused full spare key set and working Thatcham approved Vecta security, with all accompanying spare tags, manuals and the original Certificate of Installation.

Service History: Comprehensive ring binder details all maintenance and service work, rare these days to see owner documentation, invoices and receipts covering an impressive 22 years, mostly Ford main dealer invoices (which include new Transaxle assembly and Clutch), and even includes all the MOT certificates from new!

Overall: a rust-free, fully useable and very smart example of a popular modern classic; especially rare to have the reassuring 22-year paper trace. An ideal sporting Ford: practical seating for family days out all year round, easily maintained, with cheap spare parts from lots of specialists. Always a talking point at petrol stops. It has driven just 43 miles in last 12 months so, after 6 years, it is clearly time to let another owner enjoy some memories!

NB. Mileage: MOTs indicate Speedo changed 2003 at 71000 so mileage = 91675

12 months MOT for the new owner to add to the existing large folder for my peace of mind.

STRICTLY NO CANVASSERS / TIMEWASTERS / SILLY OFFERS or P/EX NEEDED
