FORD ORION - £695
FORD ORION MK3 1800 DIESEL
This is a genuine manufactured Diesel and is quite rare. Diesel very economical to run 50 plus mpg can be easily achieved. I have not seen another one lately. It does not have power steering.
This car has been in the same family for the last 19 years. It has had 3 former lady owners, the last 2 lady owners being family members. The Orion is now owned by myself. I am an ex mechanic and have maintained it for all of its life whilst being in my familys ownership.
We bought the Orion when it had done approximately 37,000 miles. Since them the following maintenance has been carried out: -
1. The engine oil has been changed every 3,000 miles.
2. The oil fitter every 6,000 miles.
The Orion has been well maintained on its mechanical parts.
Since 2013 when the Orions mileage read 125,654 miles the following parts have been fitted : -
Hand brake cables, rear brake shoes, rear brake cylinder front brake discs, front brake pads, 2 Ford rear suspension struts, rear Ford engine mounting, o/s front indicator lamp, front tinted windscreen, Fuel Tank.
From the reclamation source it has very good gear linkage, both headlights and a Towsure Tow Bar.
The Orion has been sprayed with oil and grease underneath and in the sills, and the wheel arch areas. It does seem to have kept them ok.
The Orion does have some dents and paint touch ups, see pictures of o/s rear sill, n/s rear door, front wings not good on bottom corners. They now have white tape over them for appearance purposes. All these could be repaired by a good body person.
The cam, pump belt and alternator belt were changed April 2016 at 130,560 miles.
The car has 12 months MOT. The MOT expires 21 July 2020.
The Orion mileage now 33160, there is only a 5 digit odometer on these cars.
The Orion drives and runs nicely. It has never been misused or flogged. There is a genuine reason for selling as another family car is coming my way.
There are some spare parts.
The inside of the Orion is neat and tidy.
It has still got the original radio/cassette in good working order.
All locks are original and operate with the same key.
