Back in the day (’87) when I started driving this was my dream car and in Jan 2019, I finally realised that dream by acquiring this stunning example.
It was fully restored in 2016 to an exceptional standard… complete nut & bolt which included a full Scheel roll top interior by ‘Aldridge’ trimming and they also fitted the vinyl roof which sets it off beautifully. There are 2 large files fully documenting the restoration.
In the time I’ve had the car the following work has been done…
• New front grill
• Original pinto air box
• Tailored car cover
• Handmade stainless exhaust
• Polished RS alloys (dated 1978) with Yoko A539’s
• New starter motor
• New distributor
• Cam belt
• Radiator overhauled
• Tracker fitted
• Exhaust manifold shield fitted
• Light restoration to the driver’s door (tin worm)
• Remote driver’s door mirror fitted
No expense has been spared on this to keep the car in the condition as you see it now. Its stored in my garage under a ‘tailored’ cover on a battery conditioner and only goes out if the roads are dry. It is a pleasure to drive and attracts an awful lot of attention. I do take it to a few shows from time to time and it has been known to win ‘best in show’. I have my own car lift to enable me to maintain the underside as shown.
Now for the bad bits…
• The car has had 22 previous owners… this doesn’t bother me in the slightest, but some people prefer low ownership.
• Not the original engine… lets be fair these were always being upgraded to the 2. 0 pinto, but at some point, the Mexico has been returned back to standard spec.
• There is a slight oil leak on the engine… most old fords leak oil.
• The clock in the RS pod ‘n’ clock is very slow.
The car has now been re-classified as ‘historic’ so it no longer requires road tax and MOT’s. However, I still get it MOT’d just to make sure everything is OK, most recently in April 2021.
Test drives will be OK but I’ll be the one doing the driving if you don’t mind. The car will not be released until all funds are in my account. I’m happy to answer any questions you have, and I can send as many photos as you want.
Sensible offers are very welcome and will be considered.
There are only 180 Mexico’s still in existence and I believe you will struggle to find a better example than this one.
