My collections doing my head in, got too many coming & not enough room, so things need to go, & the first in this cull is the skort... 

Has a years MOT, was 1 owner till I got it a few weeks ago, done 150k, but been over serviced (inc 2 timing belts within 10,000 miles, a water pump, a clutch & a recent battery. It starts & runs well, with only a small amount of CVH rattle (been semi using it as a daily & I`m surprised at how many looks & comments it gets). MOT guy said its running cleaner than most moderns (did you hear that government? WELL DID YOU?), he was also impressed with the lack of rust underneath & the quality of the welding it has had. It has run on a few times, & when I checked the plugs they were sooty, so I`m guessing the pistons are a bit coked up due to the previous OAP doing 3-5 miles once a fortnight for the last however many years. Likely solvable with a bit of water injection.

The battery tray does leak depending what angle you park it at in the rain, so that could use a weld, or a jolly good masticing.

Its no oil painting, various dinks, scuffs & scrapes & rust (rear arch), a worn through drivers bolster, a cracked door card. The boot strut mounting bracket has cracked, so the strut pops off (chunk of wood included).

Functionality-wise, the passenger windows sticking (motor & mechs ok, just needs an adjust & WD), central locking goes mental, so fuse removed (likely dirty drivers door microswitch, same fuse as interior lights, so they arent working because of it). petrol gauge not working (fill up, do 150-200 miles, then fill up again), rear wiper dead (the heated rear screen was deaded too, but its suddenly working, so possible cracked loom at the boot hinge) & stereo deaded.

Other notes.. The front wishbone bushes needs doing, the shocks are tired, the NSR wheel locks up under heavy braking, so either needs adjusting or shoes, the front tires are out of balance at 60-70*mph. It has 4 different keys, one for each lock, both screen rubbers are perished & theres some milkiness to the front one in a couple of places (has a heated screen, but doesn't seem to work)... Its mostly easy but fiddly stuff, easy to deal with if you've got time, but in reality I don't, & I keep spending more & more time on it which is taking time away from other projects.

I could stick it up for eleventy billion pounds seeing as its a classic Escort, but its up for a bargain £799, fellow shitters will get it for less.

I may swap for a Transit sized van (post 2001 for LEZ reasons, or anything petrol), but, I`d much rather have wonga due to space issues.

Its giving the feeling that it`d happily drive anywhere indefinitely, and last another 5-10 years without needing further welding if given a dose of Waxoyl. I wouldnt be concerned about driving it across the country.

In EN5 bit of that there London, just off M25 & A1.

At the moment its this, the Bluebird (got 3-4 interested parties waiting on me finishing the door painting) & possibly both Pandas (an 88 750L needing a sill patch finished off, tie rod bar bushes changing & some electrical gremlins sorting before it gets an MOT, & the 94 1000S which is MOT`d but the tax is out tomorrow & I`ve not even picked up yet).

It doesnt look like it superficially but it would be a good basis for a rolling resto, which was my fantasy intention, unfortunately reality dictates it needs to go. I`m sure my neighbours would agree..

That, much to the disgust of some, is what’s happening to the Sierra. Piece by piece it’s turning around. It’s frustrating at times but more rewarding than an open cheque job.

My Fusion also has the same milkiness on the front screen and heated front screen fail. Good old Ford, you always know where you are with 'em ;-)

 

Isn't Ford central locking of this era notorious for it's unpredictability?

 

Anyway, nice car - hope a Ford licker spruces it up.

I was gonna break it & put it on ebay as such (was offered £200 for the sunroof by 3 people, £100 for the parcel shelf by 2 people & £50 for the back lights!?!), but it slid through the MOT so easily I decided that`d be criminal.

It is a nice easy rolling resto, been completely reliable while I`ve been driving it, & theres nothing catastrophic thats going to need it dragged off the road for days/weeks/months to repair.

I`m sure its got years ahead of it without much outlay given the right ownership.

That looks a nice buy at that price, it wouldn't take much effort to make that look really nice, sadly not for me though as they are hot property around these parts with the local scum but it would make a excellent first classic for someone.

Yeah, its worring me as well.. I did take my old stoplock out of my Panda (all the rubbers gone sticky & is falling off of it, so wrapped it in silver gaffer tape) to put in this, & its under my CCTV camera 24/7..

As mentioned before, that would be a fabulous rolling restoration, especially if you are able to weld the rear arches yourself or you know someone who can do so for little money :)

I will take a Mk1 Zafira auto though, or possibly another 7-8 seat auto (for a female friend with family, so no hanging, half dead shite please!), or a nice 5-Door Mk3 Punto for my kids Mum, or a new shape Panda for my oldest.
