Further clue- certainly one of the longest ford make-model-trim designations of the last 25 years.

 

Mondeo LX?

hmm... 25 years... so 198-- no wait.  1993 onwards.

 

Ford Orion Ghia it is then.

Close on an agreement on this one but I’ll just put this aside until the deal is firmed up.


Meanwhile, sportka 1.6 se vs puma 1.4- which if either would you choose and why?

I'd like a Puma,  they are pretty and are supposed to drive really well.  I haven't bought one yet because they are too small, too rusty and any I've seen for sale are too new for classic insurance.  The SportKa is worse on all fronts, I can't see many surviving till 20.

Never owned either, but interesting question.

If it was the 1.7 puma, then no contest, Puma easily wins.
However as pitching the 1.4 I'd say the Streetka just pips it.

I also understand the SK's rust for fun everywhere, not just rear arches. So finding a solid one could be fun.

I would go for the SportKa as you would always be wishing that the 1.4 Puma was the 1.7.

Then again, I did seriously consider a Puma but I just couldn't quite get excited enough about them. I think the Fiesta dash put me off whereas the prefacelift Ka dash is a sight to behold.
