  • Anybody know of this car?

    Afternoon Gents, still lurking in the shadows looking for a car and have seen this one pop up on ebay:

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1996-FORD-...25.m3641.l6368

    Anybody know anything about it/ any comments?

    Thank you in advance.

    I think it's been discussed on here before but I can't find the thread. from memory it has pretty much zero history and the photo's make it look better than it actually is. Non standard retrim too my be the reason for the cheap price.

      Thank you for the reply. Is the interior non-standard then?

        Its been re-trimmed, if you go and have a look make sure you take someone that knows these cars, as no offence you clearly don't yourself

          No offence taken, thanks for the post. I am looking for a fixer/upper and can find my way around the oily bits just a novice on everything else!

            It's the right price for one that needs work - as above, ensure someone who knows what they are looking at takes a look over it - they can hide many sins.

              Thanks again chaps.

              Anyone local that can/would inspect for me? Happy to cover reasonable costs or is there anybody that can inspect professionally?

                    Someone may be able to help, or may have already been to view the car previously.

                      Save your money and buy a nice one instead, there was a cheap mallard green one on here the other day that looked 100 times better. Think it was about 26k, but theres not much chance of buying that and making that nice for the same

                        Agree with what he said. By the time you've finished and hunted and hunted for the right parts you're worse off and it might not be perfect. Mine needs a lot of love, so if you're like me and want to go nuts, go for it. Though if you want standard in the end, don't bother.

                          Mark Shead at M.A.D can inspect the car for you

                              you are right in what you are saying however that's ok to anyone who has 26k to buy a better car instead of the 19k that this one is, and it may be cheaper again with a bit of bargaining , that's a big jump for someone who is trying to get an escort cosworth for a reasonable price.
