1983 Ford Fiesta Popular



1983 Ford Fiesta Popular

The vendor has kindly supplied the following information.

Only 39k miles on the clock!

This car can only be described as a true survivor. Owned by an elderly gentleman for most of its life although transferred into his wife’s and nieces name at other times. He stored it in a carpeted stable throughout his ownership (even the baby Jesus didn’t get carpets in his stable!). This car has never been welded and doesn’t need any, I’ve had it on a lift and taken plenty of photo’s which are available if required. The underside is totally original and not covered in underseal, the jacking points are not crushed, the towing ring has not been ripped from the boot floor and the chassis rails are perfectly straight and undamaged. The whole underside of the car is completely straight and there is no sign of any careless jacking up at all, it’s exactly how it should be.

It has had a replacement drivers side wing at some point which has been fitted to a very good standard and been resprayed.

Under the bonnet is exactly how you would expect a car of this age and mileage to look and requires just a good clean. The interior is original and very sparse with vinyl seats and foot operated windscreen washers. Everything works on this car and it starts, drives and stops without any issues.

It will require recommissioning though as it has been off the road since 2002.

Would make a perfect donor for a rotten XR2 or supersport but really should be kept as is due to its rarity, when did you last see an un-welded Mk1 Fiesta.  

We are open 7 days a week here at Thornton Le Dale for pre-sale viewing, although a quick phone call prior to travelling is advised.

Don't forget. We personally collect FREE of charge around 90% of all our auction vehicles.

So, if you have a vehicle which you would like us to re-home.... just make the call. 01751 474455
