Here for sale is my MK1 Fiesta Survivor, its a 3 owner from new, 1979 1.1 popular which has never been welded or painted, not even a patch. This is a rare opportunity for an original, unmolested, time warp example of a fast appreciating classic.

A bit of History It was originally bought by a company as a company car, then purchased off the company in 1985 by the employee who used and kept it. He used it till 1988 then passed it onto his daughter who ran the car till 2005 when it was put it in a dry garage and stored till 2015 when I acquired it. I bought with the Intention of my wife using the car as she had one when she was younger, but she never clicked with it so Ive decided to let someone else enjoy it! The car comes with a history file as pictured which contains an extensive amount of receipts, MOTs, original sales brochures, dealership pack and more.

The car is original Cordoba Beige with complete original, brown dog tooth interior. It starts, drives and stops, the MOT has just run out (06/09/17) but will be given a fresh 12 months before sale. It passed its last MOT with no advisories.

The bodywork has some patina surface rust as youd expect from a 38yo worked car that has never been welded, but NO rot or rust perforations. Most noticeable surface patina is in the rain gutters, below front number plate, inside of the bonnet and on the battery tray. There is also a tiny amount of superficial surface rust in lower parts of wheel arches and a couple of small touch up pen spots on OS rear arch. The original paint and chrome still polish up like new and sing in the sunlight, there is only a minor ding in the driver door above the handle, but only visible when looked for in the right light, no broken paint. The Interior bodywork is also in exceptional condition for age, you could eat your dinner off the boot floor.

The brown Dogtooth interior is also in stunning condition for its age with only the drivers seat showing signs of wear and tear, excuse the pun. As in pictures there is a tear and some sun damage to the seat pad and OS top corner of the drivers seat, both age and use related. Only other noticeable signs of use inside the car are a worn gearstick nob and some scratches on the removable wooden boot floor. This really is a time warp car, being inside it is like going back in time, it even smells like 1979!  

When I acquired this lovely little car in 2015 it was visually, virtually as you see it now. All exhaust, suspension and engine were fine. Having been so well looked after over the years, all it required was some recommissioning to the brake systems and a clean. Recommission work includes;
-    A full service and engine flush using NOS parts where possible; the car is fitted with a period NOS Ford oil filter, sale also includes spare NOS oil filters.
-    Front and rear brake overhauls; callipers and drums blasted and painted, new brake seals, pistons, solid brake lines, pads and shoes.
-    5 x original matching date stamped steel wheels, blasted, repainted and fitted with 5 new tyres.

This is an honest little car, Ive tried to photograph it so you can clearly see everything. Though Im sure Ive missed something so please feel free to ask any questions you may have, or to arrange a viewing on - 07813038414
