This is a really exceptional Mk3 Escort 1.3 GL 5-door in Caribbean Blue. It was purchased new in April 1982 by its original owner who then kept it for the following 33 years, finally selling it to its only other keeper in July 2015. It has been MOT'd every year from 1985 (its first test) with the exception of 2012/13/14 when it was off the road due to the original owner having given up driving. All these MOTs, together with those for 2015/16/17,are present in the history file and so provide positive confirmation of the car's remarkable mileage of 29000. The current MOT runs until 23rd July 2018 and has no advisories. The history file also includes the original sales invoice which shows that the car had Ziebart rust protection applied before delivery,and a very good job it has done too! To the best of my knowledge the car is entirely in its original paint, albeit with a number of touch-ins which have been applied over the years, and is still corrosion free. The interior of the car is in equally good condition with no rips or tears in the upholstery or carpets, no cracks in the dash and a perfect headlining. It would not appear to have been smoked in. Mechanically the car is superb. It starts easily and runs smoothly and quietly with no smoke or untoward noises. The clutch and four speed transmission work exactly as they should and are also smooth and quiet. All the electrics work efficiently although the brake pad wear light and oil level (not pressure) light operated from the electric dipstick are a little random, though I seem to remember that they were like that back in the day! The history file also contains invoices in excess of £1500 confirming that the second owner had the car serviced,the brakes overhauled,the timing belt and tensioner replaced, the shock absorbers replaced and the suspension rebushed. This is a great example of the rather more "everyday" classics which can be every bit as much fun to own as their rather more exotic siblings whilst being more rarely seen on the road and much less expensive to buy! Please give me a call on the details below if you'd like any more information or to make an appointment to view . Thank you for looking.
