Classic Car Auctions says:

1979 Escort 1.6 Ghia...3,745 Miles!
Have you ever seen one of this age with this mileage? This well preserved, Mk2 Ghia has had the advantage of being 'Ziebarted' from new, which is apparent when you open the door and look at the door shuts. Sit in this amazing time-warp car and it wouldn't take much imagination to believe that you were sitting in a new Ford in a dealer's showroom in 1979.
This stylish Escort Ghia would have been a sophisticated choice in 1979, and still turns heads 37 years later for different reasons. We understand that the car looks and drives like a 4,000-mile car and it has a good MoT history along with some receipts and the original dealer handbook folder. Blue ovals of this era are big news in today's classic car world, and this enchanting Escort would grace any classic car collection. Although the car has been in storage for the last couple of years, it will be supplied to the auction with a fresh MoT, and will be suitably re-commissioned for any prospective buyer.
