Tidy example of a rarer Mk3 base model 1.6 Cabriolet. Mot until July 14 2020 but currently waiting to see what the extension will be.
Recently replaced water pump, cam belt, 4 tyres and front strut. Hood in good order. Original radio cassette with electric aerial, 5 speed box,
Has had welding in the distant past and generally good condition for its age, there is some minor paintwork in hand on the upper offside wings, should be done shortly.
It has a genuine Ford XR3 kit of front lip spoiler, rear spats and RS boot spoiler (not yet fitted), and period style spot lights, fog lights and mudflaps.
Battery is a brand new Bosch 60A diesel spec.
Owners workshop manual and extensive history box file included.
The seats are original high line cloth faced in decent condition with a small split in the stitching only on the drivers seat. Three lap straps in the rear make this a 5 seater.
It has the original VV carburettor with Auto choke that works perfectly but I’ve accumulated several parts during my ownership, including a period manual choke conversion kit, two new Track control arms, and a brand new XR2/3 Weber twin choke carb, used manifold and all that again in spare parts.
This car drives very well, not the fastest but plenty fast enough, sweet clutch and gearbox, the gear lever has been replaced in the recent past so has a lovely gear change. The ride is actually quite good, very compliant and standard ride height.
Please note the spotlight grille has now been removed (but is included as perfectly useable) as I have started to fit more correct round spotlights and the original grille. Will change the photos when done.
Priced at £3495, could possibly do a deal on a VW Eos 2.0 TDi.
