Vehicle Information

Having been with its lady owner for more than 29 years the vehicle has been serviced and maintained by Ford for its entire life.
The overall condition is simply stunning and a credit to its previous owner who took delivery on 17th of August 1989 by Ford main agent, Allen of Romford.

Exterior

Finished in its original factory finished Maritime Blue paint work.
We believe the vehicle wears its original factory fitted panels.
The exterior of this Ford Escort Popular looks stunning and presents to a show standard with just the very lightest of age related patina in places.
The paintwork is bright and extremely glossy following a professional detail and wax to the paint.
All external lights are original fitment.
The exterior rubbers, factory etched glass, lenses and trim are all original and in a fine condition.
The vehicle has been professionally detailed and prepared to a show standard with an eye on maintaining the original surface appearance and texture.

Interior

The interior presents beautifully showing virtually no wear to the switchgear or surfaces.
The seats and door trims are finished in their original Shadow trim and show virtually no wear, we were told that the rear seats have never been sat in and that the rear plastic seat protection has only just been removed.
The vehicle also features its original Ford rubber mats.
Period features include a blanked off cigarette lighter, wind up windows and factory fitted Radio (Model 2001) with blanked off cassette entry door.
All dials and switch gear function correctly and show no cracks or U.V damage to the dashboard. It is like stepping back in time!

Engine and Transmission

The 1297cc engine and gearbox are original items.
Having benefitted from a new clutch, Ford battery, timing belt, new centre section and rear back box the vehicle performs without fault.
We also asked our local Ford main agent to carry out a service to continue with the flawless Ford service history.
Other service and age-related parts have been replaced which have been documented and added to the service history file.
The engine runs extremely smoothly and the car is an absolute dream to drive.
The vehicle’s undercarriage, wheel arches and engine bay have all been steam cleaned and present superbly.

Wheels, Tyres and Brakes

The factory fitted wheels have been sand blasted, repainted and finished with off with new wheel bolts.
4 brand new 155/80 13T correct specification Firestorm tyres have been fitted.
Brakes are in excellent condition with new brake fluid.

Boot

The boot floor shows no rust or accident damage.
The parcel shelf is straight and free from any aftermarket speaker holes.
The boot contains its original and unused factory jack with unused original spare wheel and factory fitted Michelin MX tyre.

History

The vehicle has an extensive and detailed service history file from new with every invoice carefully logged in the service history file, the file reads like a Swiss watch!
From experience it is rare to find a vehicle with full main agent service history, especially for this duration.
The service history file includes the original Ford service book with Ford main dealer service stamps, including additional pages due to the book running out of space, the first stamp being its 1500 mile service at 1090 miles, then a further 28 service stamps entered in the service book.
Also included is the Ford Audio Premium Sound System book, Owners handbook, original V5, original bill of sale and an invoice for additional warranty cover.
All original Ford keys, additional Ford service invoices, dealer number plate and original rear window sticker.

To Finish

It is extremely rare to find an 80s Ford in a time warp condition with main agent service history throughout its entire life.
The vehicle is perfectly originally, and in our opinion, an appreciating Ford to own for not much money.
We have documented all recent work with invoices being supplied to the vehicle’s service history
