Lot 272 - 1995 Ford Escort Cabriolet
|Odometer reading||34,313 miles|
|Result||Sold - £3,080|
The Ford Escort was manufactured from 1968 to 2002. The first use of the Escort name was for a reduced specification version of the Ford Squire, a 1950s estate car version of the Anglia 100E, though this did not sell well by comparison to the other members of the 100E family. The Escort was revised in January 1995 (sixth generation) although it was still based on the previous model. This version had new front lights, bonnet, front wings, front and rear bumpers, wing mirrors, door handles and four different front radiator grilles. The interior of the car was radically revised to featuring an all-new dashboard arrangement of competitive quality. However, the underlying car was now five years old and most of its rivals were either new or to be imminently replaced.
Our vendor purchased this example at the start of this year to enjoy during the summer months. After looking for the ideal car, he purchased this genuine low mileage car with just 34,000 miles from new. In stunning white paintwork, with an immaculate black hood and tounneau cover, and contrasting grey interior. Since purchasing the car, the vendor had a small service carried out which also included having a new catalytic converter fitted and more recently it has successfully passed an MoT test. The car has just had Brand new Front Brake Callipers, Discs and Pads, and Rear Wheel Cylinders. Within the history file there are receipts showing £276.25, and £478.51 respectively for the above mentioned works which means this low mileage, iconic car is now ready for the new owner to enjoy for next year’s summer months.
Guide Price £3,000 - £5,000
