EXTERIOR
This amazing Ford Fiesta XR2 has remained with just one owner from new and has been preserved in stunning, completely original condition.  The paintwork finished in factory Ford Diamond White (code B3) has a brilliant pure shine with a uniform finish thanks to being garaged from new.  All original panels are straight with linear gaps completely free from rust or corrosion.  A tiny ding on the nearside front wing and nearside door are both barely noticeable and certainly take nothing away from this stunning Fiesta.  The factory original appeal of this special vehicle is accentuated by standard trim sections, bumpers and single body-side coachline, correct and in immaculate order.  Even the supplying dealer number plates remain fitted!  A true fast Ford icon in factory original condition.

INTERIOR
The interior of this remarkable example is in spotless original condition and exactly as Ford intended.  The Monaco trim in Bluestone colour scheme (code L4) is beautifully clean and the common vulnerable areas for wear such as the seat bases and bolsters are as new.  The colour-keyed velour carpet is clean and free from wear having been protected from new by rubber Ford over mats.  All switchgear is functional and intact, and the soft finish dashboard is perfect.  The header mounted digital clock retains the correct grey LCD display and the original Ford stereo radio/cassette (Model ESRT 32 PS) remains in place.  The hugely difficult to source original trimmed parcel shelf is intact, straight and complete with the correct rubber hangers.  An absolute testament to the owner’s devotion to uphold the originality of an all-time Ford great!

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The time proven transverse mounted 1597cc OHC engine with twin-venturi carburettor develops a lively 95BHP at 5750rpm and 132Nm of torque at 4000rpm.  In such a lightweight and nimble car, the sense of fun and that unmistakable exhaust note make this car truly addictive!  A top speed of 109mph and 0-60 in just 9.3 seconds is eagerly achieved.  The engine is wonderfully quiet and smooth, owing to a lifetime of fastidious care and maintenance, all evidenced in the fully stamped service book.  The standard specification automatic choke and electronic ignition are both present and correct, and operate perfectly.  The smooth five speed synchromesh gearbox with remote shift is light and exact, a joy to use.
 
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Five Special ‘pepperpot’ 13” X 6” alloys wheel shod in brand new Yokohama 185/60 R13 tyres remain with the car, with the spare retaining the original Pirelli P6.  Only very light scuff marks to the outermost rims are noticeable and certainly do not spoil the glorious aesthetics of this car.  The dual line servo assisted brakes with ventilated 9.4” front discs and 7.0” rear drums bring the car up to a steady, straight and assured halt.

HISTORY FILE
A truly incredible and unrepeatable history file make this example very special.  Registered new on 12th June 1989 by Ford Main Dealer Crimble of Staines Ltd to the first owner Mr Derek Doughty, who has been the only keeper of the car since.  A New Vehicle Sales Invoice illustrates the purchase price of £9,030 including an allowance for part exchange of £5,000 for Mr Doughty’s 1987 XR2.  Optional extras listed include, mats (£15), locking wheel nuts (£20) and Ford Extra Cover (£79.13).

The original Ford A5 folder contains all original handbooks, guides and radio instructions as well as the service booklet containing no less than 24 stamps documenting the 59,841 miles covered.  The fully stamped service book is additionally noted with all work carried out and documents cambelt changes.  A further colossal history file contains countless invoices and receipts for maintenance work, and an insight to the owner’s quest for perfection is seen with many worksheet requests showing where Mr Doughty has insisted on a full checkover.

To find such an original, one owner example with a fully comprehensive history file is incredibly rare and an absolute delight for any classic car enthusiast.  A vehicle for the collector it’s needless to say, but certain to impress any motoring fan with an appreciation for the utter devotion an owner has for their beloved car.  Simply wonderful!
