The final incarnations of the Mk4 Ford Escort and Mk2 Orion were celebrated in true Ford tradition by the release of Special Edition models featuring high specification and styling from the sportier models, introducing the Escort Eclipse and here, the Orion Equipe. Both models were available in just two metallic colours, Pacifica Blue or this example in Flambeau Red, (Code 4 0). This exceptional and strictly garaged Orion has been the pride and joy of the previous owner since 1992 and has covered just 29,790 miles from new. The original paintwork is simply incredible with a bright uniform shine and beautiful finish. All factory panels are preserved and only a few carefully touched in markings and a shallow ding to the nearside front wheel arch can be seen. The unique trim is fully intact and free from damage or sun light deterioration and all original badges and decals are intact. Originality seekers will be pleased to see all factory glass etched with the registration number and service stickers in door apertures as well as all light fitment the correct Carello and Ford items. This Special Edition Orion is preserved in remarkable order and is a credit to the two fastidious owners from new.

Trimmed in luxurious Astral Shadow fabric, (Code LS), the upholstery is pristine as you would expect from such a low mileage pampered example. The seats are spotless, as are the matching door cards which have remarkably good inner handles which are a known weak point for plastic fatigue. The steering wheel and gear knob bear all the hallmarks of low mileage with prominent natural veins. The coloured keyed cut pile carpet and Dawn Grey headlining are immaculate and the perfect dashboard and switchgear are representative of a new car with all equipment working perfectly. The condition and even the smell take you back to a 1990 Ford showroom and the original condition is impossible to replicate.

The 1.3 litre HCS 4-cylinder engine with a sequential twin venturi carburettor produces 63bhp allowing a top speed of 98mph and 0-60mph in 13.5 seconds. The engine bay is exceptional clean and well preserved with date stamps and Ford emblem stamps to the factory wings, slam panel and scuttle. Genuine Ford Motorcraft service items are used and the car is totally standard even down to the original exhaust system with distinctive rasp. The 5-speed manual gearbox is light and crisp.

6X14 BBS style alloy wheels are unrestored and in immaculate condition with Ford emblem and part number stampings clearly defined. All four tyres are premium brand 185/60 R14 Firestone Firehawk with masses of tread and the original Dunlop SP Sport tyre wraps the spare wheel. Diagonally-split dual line servo assisted braking system with front discs and self-adjusting rear drums stops with assurance.

Supplied by Ford Main Dealers, Dereham Ford in Norfolk and later known as Busseys Ford, this example was registered new on the 2nd May 1990 to a Mr Edward Thomson. Mrs Janet White purchased the car in 1992 and has owned it ever since, with a total of just 29,790 warranted miles covered. Every single yearly MOT certificate from the very first in 1993 has been kept and incredibly they were all carried out by Busseys Ford! The stamped service book contains entries from the same supplying dealer and all handbooks, guides, code cards and dealership literature remain in the Ford document wallet along with two Ford keys with dealer fobs. This fabulous 29 year old survivor is sure to please any Blue Oval fan and the condition is a true credit to the owners love for the car. It will make a perfect show car.

MOT May 2020, HPI Clear.
