Supplied new by Ford Main Dealer, Lookers of Kidderminster, and registered new on 24th January 1990. The vehicle was registered new to Lookers Planned Motoring as a management car in the supplying dealership network. In April 1992 the car was sold to the first and only private keeper who has owned it ever since. A genuine 35,968 miles has been covered from new and the car displays absolute breathtaking originality throughout, a real credit to the long-term owner. The car was always garaged and it sat alongside the owners original Volvo 145 also virtually owned from new! In 2008 the car was placed into long term dry storage owing to the owner ceasing driving and has been recently brought out whereby it still wore its factory fitted Uniroyal tyres. A complete recommission has been carried out to all mechanicals, fluids, brakes and fuel system so the car is now ready to enjoy on the ever popular retro car scene!
