So the ford collection in the house has grown once again.
It was at Crap, and I blame Glyn for this one, where we saw a Sierra pull up.
My other half quite liked the look of it. I knew about one locally that was sort of for sale if the right person came along.
Well after going to see it and seeing the look on my other halfs face, this going to be her car, I knew I had to buy it for her.
I Didn't tell her that though, I just said it was too much and made all sorts of excuses about why we couldn't, just so I could surprise her when the deal was done.
Essentially it is a 2 owner from new car. Ford owned it for the first year, the second owner had it from 1992 to 2005 and the last owner had it from 2005 unti now. The last 9 years it has been in a Barn gathering dust but dry and warm. Guess that means we have bought a barn find.
Car has not be charged in 9 years and still started up first turn of the key and idled sweet.
It does need work, as all old fords do but apart from a small patch on both sills is rust free.
Has good service history and all original books from ford.
It is original to the last nut except for the RS spoiler that was put on the car in its early life.
Plan for it is to get it home, Wash and polish it, Service the engine, Get the injectors cleaned and inspected, new filters, overhaul the brakes, new tyres and get her ready for the road.
Best part is I get to just assist as the other half will be learning everything she needs to be a proper old ford petrol head.
Will get pictures up when I have any, with and without dust.
