    Welcome! Nice Volvo you have there.
  2. The hand painted model name sets it off nicely. I don't think the Kenyan car industry is going to be causing the Japanese any sleepless nights. Although Laikipia seem to have already come up with a facelift: Much better.
  3. Austin Montego 1.6L - (Low mileage survivor) "Has about 65000 miles on the clock, Long MOT (till Dec). This is one a very few of these cars and specifically this model left. I bought it for a bit of nostalgia as my father had one the same colour and age, but now with some other projects I know that its not going to get the attention it should. Condition wise, its very good, no real real notiable rust, paintwork is good for its age. I have driven it a little bit and seems to drive very nice." Current bid £77, sadly only four rather crap pictures. Ebay link
  4. Holman Hunter, according to the seller!
  5. The passenger door mirror definitely wasn't standard and now it seems that it wasn't fitted until recently. Ford were still selling cars with only one door mirror until at least 1988. For anyone interested in the details of the equipment levels, I've scanned the full range brochure: July 1982 Ford range brochure

  7. Or if you want a radio that could have been original to the car you need to find a P21 or P32, both were available as factory fitted options when it was new.
  8. Three door was the only option for Escort estates in 1982. The five door was added in April 1983, the brochure for that month is quite interesting because it talks about how they used as many parts as possible from the existing three door estate and five door hatch to keep costs down. Hard to imagine a manufacturer publicising such things today! Even with the option of five doors, the choice of a three door estate isn't necessarily penny pinching. A three door will have much longer side doors, which could be useful, depending on what you're using it for.
  9. Excellent purchase. A Mark 3 with vinyl seats must be incredibly rare now, even the brochures always showed the optional fabric trim on interior shots. This is the July 1982 edition: Here's the features and options list. Clearly the original buyer was prepared to part with £12.71 for a passenger side door mirror, but not £45.28 for fabric trim.

  11. I don't know. Cazana used to give information on number plate changes, but doesn't any more. @LightBulbFun is something of an expert in getting info from online tools, perhaps he can help! Incidentally, the Fiesta was parked in Morrisons car park. When that store opened in 1993, I bet Mark 1 Fiestas were frequent visitors!
