1992 Ford Escort 1.4 Dash Convertible
The Escort Mark V arrived in September 1990 with an all-new body shell and a simplified torsion beam rear suspension. Initially the 1.3 L HCS, 1.4 L and 1.6 L CVH petrol and 1.8 L diesel units were carried over from the old model. In early 1992, the new Zetec 16-valve engine was launched bringing improved driveability, while also marking the return of the XR3i which was available with two versions of the 1.8 L Zetec engine. The RS2000 also appeared in the autumn of 1991 with a 16v version of the Sierra's 2.0 L engine, and also improved ride and handling, meaning that this version of the Escort delivered on the road. Specifications, however, were also higher than before. The Escort was now available with items such as power steering, electric windows, central locking, electronic anti-lock brakes, and air conditioning. Some of these options were even available on some of the entry-level models.
This example is presented in Metallic Red & Moondust Silver with Grey Velour Interior. The car is described by the vendor as a very rare, one off, with this mileage and condition, with only one lady owner from new. There is a private plate, which has been on car from new, K2 NGH, said to be worth in excess of £1,000, included.
This amazing example has never covered more than 2,000 miles per year (usually less), with only 3,000 miles covered in the last 10 years. It has been in storage for the last 4 years, and has recently been re-commissioned. There were no advisories on the last MOT and it is thought that there have never been any advisories issued in it's history.
The vendor purchased this car from a friend, who's mother bought the car new. There is a folder full of invoices, including the original purchase invoice and associated paperwork, the Ford brochures, old tax discs (a couple missing), and handbook pack. Most of the servicing was done by the owner's husband, a classic car "nut", who was fanatical about servicing the car. A super example that is one of not many examples fitted with Power Steering.
