And look to "item specifics", it has ESP!!! Ford was ahead of everybody in 1986, but didn't tell it to anybody. :-D

Perhaps Ford thought the owners had a sixth sense and didn't need to be told....... :lol:

It looks like a nice car, although I'm surprised that the previous owners have kept the original invoice, but not all of the paperwork that would support the claims of a reasonably low mileage.

A service book and receipts etc don't take up alot of room, but amazes me how many owners lose/throw away things like that :roll:

I might be overthinking things here, but I've noticed in the video and some pictures the exhaust manifold is painted a nice silver, (sprayed on the car as you can see the overspray) then in one photo it has either burnt off or was just taken at another time. Little details like this and the mileage are a bit suspect imo... how many other things have been given a quick 'once-over' on this car to make it look better than it is.

Stuff like that wouldn't bother me usually but it does when we're talking 10k for a 100k+ mileage 1.6 Laser.

To be fair, looks a tidy car guys quite honest in his add as well.
Also quite reasonably priced so could be worth a look over if anyone is interested?
