1987 Ford Escort XR3i AUCTION FINISHED

This Ford Escort XR3i is a highly original example of a spritely modern classic, with just one private owner since 1998, and is presented in good mechanical and cosmetic order throughout. It is powered by a fuel-injected 1.6-litre CVH engine producing 105bhp, coupled with a five-speed manual transmission. The odometer indicates under 91,000 miles from new. First registered in November 1987. The bodywork of this XR3i presents in very good order, and benefits from a recent full respray in the original colour, with flush shut lines and no evidence of any panel damage.

The car’s Radiant Red finish is in excellent condition for an car of this age. The plastic trims show minimal evidence of age-related fading, while the headlight and spotlight lenses remain clear and free of clouding. The interior condition is just as impressive, the seats show minimal wear and shows a good indication just how well the owners have maintained the vehicle. The handle on the gear stick has been changed from the original. With an MOT recently complete with no advisories this truly is a special car.

The vehicle rides on the original 14-inch alloy wheels, which present in superb order on all four corners.
