SUMMARY

An unwanted prize, this rare, 'time-warp' Ford has covered under 1,000 miles from new.

DESCRIPTION

  • Finished in New Sahara Gold Metallic with an unmarked Charcoal Leather interior
  • An unwanted prize in a Ford competition '21 Years as the Nation's Favourite' and unused hence the low-mileage
  • This is the bigger Japanese-engined example with the V6 2.5-litre offering 160bhp, 0-60 in 8.5 seconds and 136mph
  • Showing a mere 997 miles from new and supplied with its original handbooks
  • Before returning to the road after storage, the car was treated to a full recommissioning with a cam belt service
  • The current MOT is valid until 14/08/2024
  • Less than 150 24v Probes are currently on the road and, we would suggest, no others with less than 1,000 miles from new
