CHEAPEST ORIGINAL MK1 ORION GHIA AND FROM THE INFORMATION AVAILABLE ITS POSSIBLY THE ONLY 1983 A REGISTRATION FACTORY STANDARD GHIA AUTO MODEL AROUND!!! YOU WONT FIND ANOTHER AT THIS PRICE £3450!!!For my 1983 ford Orion 1.6 ghia automatic (non injection model) with a genuine 21,000 miles on the clock from new.The car has had just 3 previous owners and was bought from crystal ford in hull on the 5th of October 1983 the car was originally registered as A128 NAT but had a plate change around 2008 to A98 RWR (private plate I think and possibly worth something?) I contacted dvla about this and they said the original number wasn't on anything else nor was it on retention so it could be possible to get it put back on.I do have quite a bit of documentation including the very first mot certificate,original sales brochure and complete handbook pack plus the car is still fitted with its original radio cassette player.I've owned the car since the middle of march 2017 before then it had been kept in dry storage since it was last on the road back in 2011 sometime and only run round the private estate just to keep it ticking over covering a mere 70 miles from 2010-2017 check mot history at gov.uk website.since ownership before I put it on the road the car had a new water pump & cambelt (as precaution) new ignition module, wiper blades, centre & rear exhaust system and a full service, I also had the front valance painted as it had a couple of nasty stonechips on it and the rear valance to due to some scratches these were professionally done by my local ford dealer (who informed me the the rest of the paintwork was original from 1983 from what the could see) apart from that the car is totally original its even still running on its original rear tyres and sporting all 4 original trims.As you can see in the pictures the car is in excellent condition the colour is fabulous Caspian blue metallic.The car is clean underneath its never seen a welder nor is it likely to in the near future also all the arches are solid.Being the orion ghia it was fitted with a lot of equipment and also sported the escort RS front seats which are very comfortable.It also has rear seatbelts which were optional at extra cost at the time.This car is a true slice of ford motoring history.
The car went back on the road 1st of April 2017 and since then I have clocked up over 1,200 faultless miles going to various classic car shows (of which it gets plenty of interest)it drives practically like a new one of its era the engine runs perfect with no smoke or nasty rattles & doesn't touch a drop of oil and the 3speed auto gearbox change is smooth and responsive with no nasty noises.
The mk1 Orion ghia is fast becoming rare especially early ones this age, mileage and in original condition so its priced accordingly to sell as one a year newer with twice the mileage sold at auction for just under £9000 in 2016.viewings can be arranged NO TIMEWASTERS OR TYRE KICKERS I have tried to be as honest as a can about the vehicle and you wont be disappointed.please remember though this is not a new car but an excellent 34 year old ford which must have been one of the first automatics on the road when the car was launched around august 1983.THIS IS a RARE UNIQUE car according to statistics(i.e how many left LIST NONE TAXED AND ONE SORN WHICH IS MINE and how rare is my car the 1983 Orion ghia auto isn't listed its only 1984 onwards) and up until the 30/09/2017 (when i sorn the car and took it off the road for winter it was the only 1983 Orion ghia auto on the road so as I have said you will be hard pressed to find another of this age, mileage,original condition and price.The car also has a number of original quality control stickers in the boot
Thanks for looking (sorry it's a bit long but I like to give as much info as poss).THIS CAR WILL ONLY GO UP IN VALUE AND WILL MAKE A GREAT FUTURE INVESTMENT.PAYMENT VIA BANK TRANSFER OR CASH ON COLLECTION.MORE PICS AVAILABLE.I'M AWARE OF THE CARS VALUE BUT IM NOT GREEDY IM ONLY SELLING AS IM LOOKING AT A MINI AND DONT HAVE ROOM FOR BOTH
