This exceptional and early Mk1 Ford Sierra 2.0 GL boasts impressive credentials of just two family owners and 27,013 miles from new. Finished in factory cost optional Metallic Champagne Gold, (Code O 3), the original finish is quite incredible with a rich and uniform shine. All factory panels remain fitted and the underside is in perfect structural order thanks to garage storage from new. A few markings to the excellent finish are barely worthy of mention such as some touched in chips to the bonnet and boot lid edge. All glass and rubbers are perfect factory fitment as are the light clusters and Lucas headlights with have been protected from new with optional Smoothy Light Guards. Original badges and model designation are in excellent condition and the supplying Ford Main Dealer number plates and tax disc holder remain with even the very first 1983 disc still in situ! One feature of this desirable early car is the absence of the D-Pillar Aerostrakes that were later fitted to the Sierra range in order improve crosswind stability. This car is an absolute credit to the two family custodians from new.

The standard Chelsea Crushed Velour trim in Peat colour scheme, (Code C 7), is a 1980’s time warp preserved in outstanding condition. The front seats have worn fitted covers since new and so the original upholstery is very clean and the unworn seat structures boast firm bolsters and bases. The seat bases still wear factory build stickers, long lost on most examples. Matching door cards have no shrinkage with only slight lift to the N/S rear door top and all plastics are beautifully preserved. Protected by genuine Ford Sierra rubber over mats, the plush colour-keyed velour carpet is free from wear and the neutral tone headlining is excellent. Virtually unheard of for a Mk1 Sierra, the fully intact dashboard has no cracks whatsoever! All switchgear, gauges and warning lights are fully functional including the Ford SRT32P FM radio/cassette and analogue clock. The spotless boot area has immaculate carpeting and even PDI scribing to the boot floor has survived. Earlier Sierra’s also had Ford emblem stamps to the inner A and B pillars, all clearly defined and correct on this car. A very rare iconic classic Ford remaining exactly as intended.

The desirable 2.0 OHC ‘Pinto’ features automatic choke, electronic ignition and a sequential twin venturi carburettor. Power output is quoted at 104bhp at 5200rpm with maximum torque figure of 157Nm at 4000rpm to achieve 0-60mph in 9.8 seconds and a top speed of 115mph. The beautifully clean engine bay displays factory wax, labels and build plates as well as original stampings to the slam panel, inner bonnet edge and inner wings with Ford emblem and date stamps clearly visible, amazing! Originality seekers will be further delighted to see original Ford Motorcraft clips and hoses and even the cam cover still has the PDI applied ‘R’ lettering intact. The engine is beautifully smooth thanks to expert care throughout and has just had a major service and cambelt in April 2024. The optional five-speed manual gearbox helps modern day cruising.

The 13in steel wheels wear the GL twin-vent full width wheel covers in excellent condition with no kerb damage and only one trim showing some very light scratches. Matching Uniroyal Rainsport 165/80 R13 tyres are brand new fitment in April 2024 with zero miles covered. Underneath the pristine boot carpet is a virgin factory spare wheel with the tyre never used as well as the original jack in its boot cubby. The dual line servo assisted brakes with front discs and rear drums bring the car up straight and steady having been recently overhauled.

Manufactured in June 1983 and supplied new on the 1st August by Ford Main Dealer, Busseys of Norwich to Mr Dennis Vaughan. The car has had just two registered keepers in total with ownership passing to his son, Allen Vaughan, of same address in 2019. The history file is amazing with a huge file of paperwork spanning the entire life of the car and starting with the original purchase documentation. The vehicle order form and sales invoice are made out to the first owner and confirm the price paid of £6,222.89 less part exchange allowance of £1,922.89 for his 1979 Ford Cortina MK4 2.0S, clearly a Ford fan! The incredible history file includes the PDI checklist from the supplying dealer and receipts for accessories such as the headlamp guards and rear blinds. Even the cold start guide, recall letters and tax discs dating back to the very first issue in 1983 have been kept. The folder continues with a huge file of service receipts and invoices dating back to the first service in 1984 as well as comprehensive MOT records to warrant the 27,013 miles. All handbooks, guides, service book and spare keys are present. In April 2024 a major service was carried out with all fluids changed as well as a cambelt and water pump replacement and full brake overhaul. The car is in prime working order to make sure it drives as good as it looks and is ready for the show circuit!

MOT April 2025, HPI Clear.
