This incredible low mileage Ford Mondeo ST24 was supplied new by Ford main dealers, H&J Quick Ltd, registered new on the 1st September 1999 to Mr Goodier. Purchased as a second car and strictly garaged, he opted for the Platinum Ford Service Connect Plan giving 3 year/3 services for an advance payment of £628.28. His absolute pride and joy it was annually submitted for an MOT and then placed back in the garage in preparation for the very rare occasional outing. On retirement from driving the car was sold to the second and only other owner, Mr Jenkins in January 2019. This car formed part of his newer Ford collection alongside iconic sporting Ford classics such as the Mk1 Ford Escort RS2000. Unfortunely, recent poor health dictated the selling of the car rather than long-term ownership allowing the opportunity for another lucky Blue Oval enthusiast to cherish this very rare modern classic appreciative of the amazing credentials and the fact it is the first model to wear the ST badge.
