1980 Ford Fiesta Sandpiper



1980 Ford Fiesta Sandpiper

Mk1 Sandpiper limited edition model based on the 1.1L.
Released in December 1979 only 2500 cars were produced.
The Sandpiper was available predominantly in a two tone colour scheme, Roman Bronze over Cordoba Beige.
Equipment wise, the car had the same spec as the L model it was derived from but with some additions.
The interior was improved by luxurious Ghia-style seats upholstered in a special combination of bitter chocolate and tan fabrics with adjustable front head restraints. The Sandpiper also had a push button VHF/MW/LW push button radio, quartz clock housed in a centre console unit, four spoke soft feel steering wheel, additional sound insulation and twin vanity mirrors in the sun-visors.

'How many left' states just two....not that they're always accurate, but at least it gives you a guide to how rare these are becoming.

On-site now for viewing. Photos to be added ASAP!!
