1979 2.0 Ghia

Post by AGD4692 »

Purchased new by my father from KT Erith on 23/1/1979, matching numbers,198k miles most have done on numerous trips London to Athens and back

I took over the car in 1984, genuine Motorsport front spoiler ( hens teeth even back in 1986 when I fitted it), Bilsteins with genuine Ford RS springs front and rear single leafs, dealer fitted front fog lights, electric aerial and sunroof deflector before delivery. Lumenition fitted in 1986 and full Janspeed manifold and system in 1987, still on the car.

Moved to Greece in 1992, obviously it came with me!!!!

Hi,
looks very good! ;)
And dealer fitted front fog lights. Rare! Where do you have switch for them? Between steering wheel and ashtray? Could you send picture, please?
