Lot 103: Ford Fiesta 1.1L

Classic & Sports Cars, Barons (28 April 2009)

The Mark one Fiesta was launched in 1976. It was also a breakthrough for Ford as it was its first truly successful front wheel drive car. It was also the first new Ford car since the Ford Granada five years earlier. The first generation Fiesta was also a "world car", an "Americanised" version being sold in the United States from 1978 to 1980 where it was called a sub-compact car. Mechanically, the Fiesta followed tradition, with an end-on four-speed transaxle mounted to a new version of the Ford Kent overhead valve engine dubbed "Valencia", named after the brand new Spanish factory developed especially to produce the new car. Ford's plants in Dagenham, England and Cologne, Germany were also used to manufacture Fiestas. The second generation Fiesta appeared towards the end of 1983. Essentially a mild facelift of the previous car, it featured a smooth Sierra-style nose, and an all-new interior. Mechanically there was little change, except for the substitution of the Escort's CVH engine for the Valencia motor in the 1.3 models, and the option of a five-speed gearbox. Offered here is a 1985 MKII, 1100cc, which was in the same ownership for 21 years (1985 - 2005) during which it covered just 15000 miles. It has now covered a mere 25400 miles and has 20 MoT certificates in support, enabling the vendor to warrant the mileage as correct. Finished in beige with contrasting cloth interior, the car is described as being in "Mint" condition throughout, has the four speed manual transmission and comes with both tax and MoT through to Sept 2009. (Tax expires 31-08-2009).
