1989 Ford XR3i



1989 Ford XR3i

The vendor has kindly supplied the following:

  • I have owned the car for the last 4 years in which time it has been kept under a car port and started regularly. I have done very few miles since owning so it's time to pass her on.
  • The car is in good shape all round. Has had some work done in the past on sills and I believe the bonnet to have been resprayed or possibly front wings. Paintwork is generally good with a small crack to the paint over rear driver side arch (not chipped off). Some slight peel around passenger side windscreen wiper and a small crack on passenger side bumper under front headlight.
  • Interior is in very good original condition complete with original stereo (and book). There is a blemish on the driver side door card arm. No leaks from the sunroof. A pillar covers are wrinkled from sun as with most examples. Not noticeable unless looking for them and has never bothered me.
  • Mechanically she is very sound. Starts first time and runs sweetly. Has had brass bushes made for the gear linkage as originally were very sloppy when I bought it. Recently serviced with new timing belt and seals. (Receipted).
  • Benefits from variable electric power steering. This was fitted and makes parking and driving in town a breeze and can be turned off to experience the original drive. Can also be reversed as I have the column to go with the car.
  • Wheels are in good condition with no kerb rash or dings.
  • I do have  folder of pictures from the previous owner who stripped the carpets etc. to make sure the shell was in excellent condition. To this end there is no rust in boot or battery tray
