Shame someone's obviously bought it to make a few quid, they will struggle at even £995 though i think.

The bodywork is the appealing bit. That F/OS wheel arch/wing damage is a work of art - no conceivable collision could have caused that.

A real Ford enthusiast will purchase that at the asking and preserve it as it is or restore it to as-new.  Unfortunately, no such person really exists so this will likely now be ruined.

Too many monies, I fear.

If it were sub £700 I could just about imagine me buying it, running it for a while for shits'n'giggles then raffling it at an acceptable loss, but a bag is too much and so is £16-odd a ticket.

That is great!!!

 

Just an observation but some people on here are proper blinkered!! For every RS licker there's a "proper enthusiast" (whatever that is) who will put the effort in to restore to factory spec, just try and turn your wanky prejudices off and have a look around and some of the restos and auctions over the past couple of years.

I don't think the price is outside the realms of feasibility given how rare it is. Even though it looks knocked around it appears to be quite solid.

I estimate this car needs £3000 maybe £4000 spending on it to get it rite and when this is done it will be wotrth about £1500!!

I simply cannot remember the last time I saw a grey grilled Sierra.  A very very long time ago.

 

It is a bit expensive, but when you consider restoration cost, what difference does a couple of hundred make?

 

Bit grim with 4 speed box though.
