Needs a good clean. Its difficult to class it as 'shite' as its the Ghia spec!!

That's lovely - I love the original wheels too, good they've survived.this is almost exacto like my Grandad's old Escort that sadly got torched along with a volvo and some bicycles and lawn mowers when neds (chavs) torched the timber garage block :cry:

Shite is blind to spec. as a top of the line model can still be shite. It's the model in itself that is shite or otherwise E.g would you have turned down the same car with basic trim? In fact sometimes the 'loaded' versions of some classic shite are even shitier due to the beautiful irony (case and point: Allegro Vanden Plas! - solid gold shite and O so fuggin wonderful)

Vote counted. I quite like the lashings of chrome. The paintwork isn't as good as it looks in the pics though..

Yeah, looks a good 'un. Always fancied an early Mk3 Ghia myself especially a 3-door.
