SUMMARY

As far as we are aware, this was the brochure car for the Sierra Sapphire Cosworth and is the only pre-facelift Smokestone car ever built with an SVO chassis plate.

DESCRIPTION

  • This is potentially a very special Sierra Cosworth being the actual car that featured on the brochure as per the pictures
  • K763 HOO was picked from Ford's production line in 1990, the chassis number confirms this year. It was then taken to Ford's SVO department where it was painted, what was at the time, a new but unknown colour which we now know as Smokestone. We believe it was used by Fords marketing department for press launches and passed to the dealerships for public approval
  • The car was registered by Ford Motor Company itself not a dealership in 1993. We have an extensive file on the car including copies of the Ford registration
  • A few years ago it was sympathetically re-commissioned to a very high standard. The Cosworth is running a completely standard engine and is believed to have never been mapped or chipped
  • The original number plate, K763 HOO, was removed in the 1990s and returned to Fords, however, it has now been reunited with the car
  • We believe this Cosworth to be the very first Smokestone in production, backed up by the SVO tag plate which makes this a pre-production car. We also believe this is the only pre-facelift Smokestone in existence and therefore almost certainly the brochure car
  • The car is very smooth, runs extremely well and is supplied with 3 genuine keys including the rare tibble key and ID tag
  • An important piece off Ford's motoring history!
