Logbook, ford dealer network book, escort manual and ultra rare escort cabriolet booklet. 2 sets of keys one set still has the key tag number attached (see picture attached). Due to the death of original owners, no service history was passed on. This vehicle is still on original tyres cam belt etc, so not sure if ever had a service with the mileage in any case.
