This stunningly original Ford Orion which has completed just 53,461 miles by its sole owner over the last 33 years, with full MOT history to confirm the mileage.
The 1600CVH engine is running beautifully, 5 Speed Gearbox is a delight to use and the 5 Speed was an option when the car was new. We have recommissioned the car having fully serviced the car and additionally fitted a new water pump , plus cam belt for total peace of mind, there were several advisories on the recent MOT’s and again these have all been rectified and the car is supplied with a new MOT upon purchase..
We have had to mildly restore this very original car, we feel sure the condition of the car was so good, due to not only the low miles, a contributing factor was down to the fact that it had been subject to Tuff-Kote Dinol Rust Treatment from new. The Champaign Gold paintwork really sets the car off in true 80’s style. The Peat Brown interior is in remarkable condition, having had seat covers fitted from new and the Beige Carpets are also unmarked as they were protected by fitted mats from new.
Originality is the key to this car, it really takes you back to the 80’s and is an extremely rare sight on the roads today and would be a great way to get into the Ford show scene in a car that can keep up with modern day traffic and would enhance any Ford collection as any MK3 derivative front wheel drive cars are in great demand.
A Genuine Rust And Rot-Free Example. First Registered By Essex Ford In 1992, Purchased By A Gentlemen Who Would Go On To Have It Garaged All Its Life. Only Had 26k Miles When It Was Laid Up In 2009.....
