Lot details

  • Rare largely unmolested example offered in the attractive combination of Silver with contrasting Grey cloth interior
  • Just 37,065 miles (atoc) and 5 former keepers
  • Impressive history file

If there is an automotive icon of the early 1980s, it has to be the Ford Sierra XR4i with its biplane spoiler. When the Sierra Saloon concept was first shown to the public in 1980, it had that spoiler, yet only the XR model used it in production and its production life was short: just 25,662 were sold in two years, 1983-85. Unsurprisingly, it never suffered from the crosswind instability for which early Sierras were famed. Best known for its tail-happy handling - it was the last of the great rear-wheel drive V6 grunt Fords - the XR4i was loved by road testers for its mile-eating ability in comfort. Precious few of these icons survive in anything approaching original condition, rust and 'boy racers' having decimated survival levels.

First registered on 30 April 1984 and presented in the attractive combination of Silver with Grey cloth interior, this particular example is offered for sale having covered a remarkable 37.056 miles from new in the hands of only 5 former keepers. ‘A169 JGV’ benefited from a number of recommissioning works in 2018, including replacement stainless steel exhaust silencers, a replacement steering rack and replacement rear CV boots and a replacement rocker cover gasket and is now offered for sale as a largely unmolested example for a collector or enthusiast.

Offered with the vehicle is a comprehensive history file containing the Ford Sierra operating guide, Ford Extra Cover leaflet, digital clock guide, audio booklet, dealer network booklet, supplement to operating guide booklet, Ford motorists guide and of course the Ford service plan, which contains 9 stamps through to September 2017 at 34,769 miles. Also included are a large collection of MOT certificates, which include every year from 1998 through to 2004, 2008, 2010, and nearly every year from 2012 through to 2020. A collection of invoices are also present, as well as the V5C document which displays 5 former keepers. The vendor rates the condition of the bodywork, engine, electrical equipment and transmission as ‘Very Good’, with the paintwork and interior trim as ‘Good’.

Please note the dipstick oil level light does remain illuminated most of the time. The original radio and petrol cap do also accompany the car.

Please note: This vehicle now comes with an MOT valid until 12 April 2024.
