Estimated at £4,000 - £5,000
Registration No: A701XAK
Chassis No: WFUBXXGBBB0598715
Mot Expiry: July 2005
Offered here is a clearly very well documented and maintained Sierra XR4i, the two-door model first leaving the Ford factory in 1983. Including the vendor, the sports-saloon, which is claimed only to have done around 33,000 miles from new when entered for this sale, has only ever had two owners.
The current keeper, who acquired the vehicle in October 1996 with certified 29,639 mileage, entered A701 XAK in the XR Owners Club Concours at Silverstone where the car was awarded third place, there being an authenticating certificate recording the award in the documents file. Indeed, to date, the spare wheel and tyre appear to have been unused and the full standard tool kit is also intact and present. On file, too, are all the relevant MOT test certificates as well as a fully stamped up service record.
The current condition of the bodyshell is described by the vendor as being good with original panels. Both red paintwork and grey cloth interior are said also to be very good as are the alloy wheels. Whilst the 2792cc six-cylinder motor, five-speed manual transmission and electrical equipment are reportedly all in good order.
