EXTERIOR
With an astonishing and genuine 137 miles from new, this example is most likely to be the lowest mileage in existence!  To suggest that this example is as new is a bold statement, but one which is wholly justified with this perfect Fiesta.  Perhaps most impressive is the underside which has been preserved in a time warp condition, with all orange PDI markings to the suspension components, yellow paint dots to the springs and factory stickers still intact, all features usually destroyed within the first few hundred miles.  In factory original Moondust Silver, (Code 6 2), the paintwork to all factory panels is 100% original and virtually as new aside from a few marks to the bonnet when in storage. The trim sections are perfect and supplying Ford dealer number plates, boot badge and tax disc holder remain fitted.  This example is simply as it left the Perrys Ford showroom in 1992, with absolutely nothing painted, replaced or altered.  Truly a one-off museum piece.

INTERIOR
An interior entirely commensurate with a delivery mileage car!  The cabin space with Astral fabric trim, (Code L7), is simply as it sat in the showroom awaiting collection by the first owner, even down to the Perrys Ford paper mat!  This paper mat is slightly soiled.  Ford Rubber mats, as new themselves, have protected the plush non-woven velour Ghia carpets perfectly and all trim sections, controls and switchgear have the new car feel which is lost soon after regular use.  Unbelievably, even the green circular PDI sticker to the end of the wiper stalk is still intact!  All functions operate flawlessly including the Ford self-seek model 2006 stereo cassette.  Probably most nostalgia evoking of all is the new car smell that has been retained, instantly familiar as a Ford and ready to transport you back to a Ford showroom in 1992!  Totally originally and impossible to better.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The 1392cc CVH four cylinder engine featuring twin venture carburettor and automatic choke set up produces a lively 75bhp at 5600rpm.  A top speed of 102mph and 0-60 is achieved in 10.6 seconds, easily adequate for modern traffic conditions.  The pristine engine bay has original plates, fragile paper stickers and factory panel stampings clearly visible.  A Ford Motorcraft oil filter and the grey Ford HT Leads remain fitted, and all fluids are clean and clear.  A sticker in the engine bay confirms a cambelt change on 2nd February 2018 with one mile covered since! The engine is whisper quiet and the 5-speed manual gearbox feels brand new!

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The factory steel wheels of size 4½ x 13 are in perfect order with the original Ghia full wheel covers fitted and as new.  The factory fitted Pirelli P2000 165/65 R13 tyres obviously are amazing with no cracks and even the bobbles and coloured banding are still prominent.  The servo-assisted diagonally split brakes with 9½” discs up front and 7”drums at the rear are free and operate correctly.

HISTORY FILE
Registered new on the 29th January 1992 by Ford Main Dealers Perrys of North Finchley, this exceptional example was purchased by a Mr Oliver Addison Esq, with a sales invoice in the history file made out to him illustrating a price paid of £9,700 after a discount of £1300.84.  Sadly, just days after purchasing the car Mr Addison was diagnosed with serious illness and never drove the car again despite taxing the car every year until his passing in 1995.  Having covered just 136 miles the car was given to his daughter, Miss Judith Addison, who does not drive but could not bare to part with it so it subsequently went into her garage where it remained until January 2018.    Thankfully the garage also housed the homes boiler which helped to keep the car warm, dry and preserved perfectly as evident today.  The car has then been sold to a good friend of Miss Addison.  The history file contains the original blue and current V5 documents confirming ownership from Father to Daughter as well and the handbooks and a typed history from Miss Addison.

A highly collectable and desirable Ghia model Fiesta, effectively a brand new car and priced identically to the invoice price in 1992.

Supplied new by Ford Main Dealers, Norman Reeves Motors Ltd and first registered on the 5th January 1983. The very last Cortina made was a Silver Crusader 1.6 Saloon on the 22nd July 1982 which remains in the Ford Heritage Centre in Dagenham. Both Fords own heritage car and this example share the same ‘CM’ chassis prefix proving the July 82 factory build and therefore being one of the last cars to roll off the factory line! Fords own car was actually registered on the 14th December 1982 and before this car despite being the last one made. The first owner, a Mrs Janet Reeves, reputedly a family member of the Dealership group, who disliked the jellymould appearance of the new Ford Sierra, opted for the Cortina. It has since remained enthusiast owned with just four former keepers and membership to the Ford Cortina Owners Club. The previous owner Mr Manning has collated a mass of Mk5 Cortina adverts in the quest to acquire one of the best and last available and this car is a credit to his efforts. A collection of old MOT certificates, all the vehicle handbooks including the service book and even a new car sales brochure makes this car a prized Cortina for the collector.

EXTERIOR
To state that this astonishing Mk1 1600XL won the Concours Mk1 trophy at the Capri National Day in May 2016 offers an insight to just how special this car is. Finished in its original shade of Light Grey (code D), Ford produced the colour for just six months from August 1971, and this is the only one known to the Capri Mk1 Owners Club. The paintwork is exceptional having been subject to a documented restoration including a fully detailed and painted underside, even down to zinc plated nuts, bolts and fixings. A beautifully smooth and polished shine is worthy of its praise from Concours Judges and original trim pieces such as the weather strips, rubbers and brightwork have taken preference over inferior aftermarket replacements. Incredibly, this example still wears its factory panels including the front wings displaying the unique upturn to the wheelarch edge as well as the original rear arches with factory welds visible. Custom Plan XL Pack specific features such as the irreplaceable fluted tailpipe trim and the twin reversing lamps below bumper have been retained for absolute accuracy. Unconditionally outstanding and one of the best existing examples.

INTERIOR
The interior of this award winning example is truly fascinating not only in condition but more so that it is completely original! The factory super grade vinyl seat coverings are amazingly well preserved with no damage or visible wear and the loop pile carpeting has been protected superbly. The dashboard and fascia are remarkable with no cracking or fading and the steering wheel still features the often deteriorated or removed leather covering. The very critical eye would note that the headlining has slight discolouration, and the aluminium tread plates show a natural patina. The boot area houses the original jack and complete Ford toolkit, and factory markings and the original delicate plastic rear lens covers remain undamaged. Blue oval royalty.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The standard 1600cc Crossflow engine offers modern traffic competing capabilities with a top speed of 96mph and 0-60 in 14 seconds. The spotlessly clean engine bay is strictly standard with genuine Ford Motorcraft service items and even the rocker cover ‘1600’ affixed at an angle, just as it left the factory! The correct oil fitted shock absorbers and strut tops also feature along with a genuine original Ford exhaust. A further unique item is the long and narrow Lincon battery sited on the left side of the engine compartment, specific to the auto models only whereby a revised battery tray design was required. The factory optional automatic transmission performs exactly as it should.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The optional sports road wheels remain in the correct silver with black infils. This Capri was manufactured with Goodyear radial tyres and the previous fastidious keeper with accuracy in mind has ensured that only the same brand should be fitted. The servo assisted brakes with front discs and rear drums bring the car up straight and true.

HISTORY FILE
