**SOLD** 1982 Ford Escort XR3 **ONE OWNER**


1982 Ford Escort XR3 **ONE OWNER ~ LOW MILES**

This Escort XR3 comes DIRECT from the vendor who purchased the car new from 'Tate Ford' back in September 1982. Now with a recorded mileage of 32,500 miles. This is said by the vendor to be correct.

Unfortunately age and health are catching up with the owner and reluctantly the XR has to go. The car does now require some improvements.

As you can imagine, limited use since his purchase, especially in more recent times. Remaining in the garage for months at a time.

Bodywork is the main focal point, which is hardly surprising, after all it's a Ford and almost 40 years old!

We have taken as many photographs as possible and a video of the car, despite this we remain firm on our advice to always view in person.

The family have been able to find the following:-

  • Ford car owners handbook.
  • Supplementary Ford Escort handbook.
  • Ford main agents Visual Health Check.
  • Lookers Ford main agent service receipts.
  • Just expired MOT test certificate issued by Lookers Ford Main Agents Leeds.
  • Current V5 document clearly displaying vendors details and stating former keepers as 'NONE'
  • No other paperwork is available at this time.

A thoroughly rewarding project. The guide would be double if the car was stunning!!

The registration number 'DUG777Y' will remain with the car. We believe this to be transferable. Although it would be a terrible shame to part the two.

Please note that descriptions are produced from information provided by the vendors. We highly recommend that you view in person any potential purchase and take time to inspect paperwork - please call us to arrange an appointment on 01751 477555. Thank you
