|Estimate||£18,000 - £23,000|
- Low mileage example
- Subject to a bare metal restoration
This Ford Fiesta was the second generation of the Fiesta supermini built by Ford Europe. Originally introduced in 1983, it was a mild facelift of the original car, with some re-engineering to accept an expanded range of engines and it was available in 3-door hatchback and panel van styles.
Arguably the most desirable of the Fiesta line up was the XR2. This is certainly the case with the car here on offer. A low mileage example with lots of history, this XR2 was subject to a complete bare metal restoration. A total of three months was spent on a body jig and all new panels were fitted where required and then resprayed in original white. The car was completely refitted at Rindt Vehicle Design with suspension and brakes enjoying a total overhaul. The result is this stunning, rust-free car that can be enjoyed for years to come. The vendor informs us that prior to the auction this stunning Ford will be serviced and given a year’s MOT.
