Escort XR3i MK5b
Beautiful condition. This car had structural welding professionally completed some 11 years ago on all the "usual" places for these cars after a failed mot.
It was then stored and essentially unused for 9 years, mainly due to owners illness. During this time it recorded only a few dozen miles in annual trips back and fro to mot station.
Two years ago it was purchased by myself (owner was my friends relation). I'm a classic car enthusiast with several vehicles.
Since in my care the car has undergone a full recommission, and bodywork restore. Rear wheel arches were professionally replaced with new panels (not temporary filler repairs!) and the bodywork had a full refresh. Now gleaming in Cayman Blue Pearl.
She drives lovely and is ready to use or show.
Has amazing condition period zebrastripe interior with no rips damage or appreciable wear - its like stepping back in time !
Overall it has had much more money spent by two owners over the 11 years restoration than it is actually worth ! But it is time for a new home now as I need the space and rarely use it.
This model of XR3i was made in much fewer numbers than the previously more popular MK4 as it was not really well received on launch. This car is part of a "missing" couple of years, until the shape became more popular when Ford enthusiasts began to worship the Escort Cosworth version.
So this car offers amazing value for a "fast ford" and a great investment opportunity as these are rare and WILL increase in value in the next few years.
This is true modern classic which you can buy without breaking the bank, drive and enjoy now, whilst its also appreciating every day!
Its standard except a couple of "period" modification which were popular back then including beefier air filter and exhaust, which I have retained as I think its fitting for the car.
May consider p/x for a classic mini with cash either way.
MOT expired 1 week ago - will have full mot before sale !!
