A rare Ford Orion Equipe 1.8EFi with 22,285 miles and last owner for 24 years!

EQUIPMENT
Halogen headlights, anti-burst door locks, roof mounted aerial, tinted glass, central locking, tilt/slide sunroof with louvred shutter, remote control door mirrors, electric remote boot release, split-fold rear seats, electric front windows, tachometer, quartz digital clock, cigarette lighter, Model 2005 stereo cassette, illuminated glove box, courtesy lighting. Factory options; Metallic paint.

EXTERIOR
Once a very common sight on UK roads and now rarely spotted, this low mileage Ford Orion Equipe is an extraordinary survivor. The factory optional Aqua Foam Metallic over Matt Grey paintwork, (Code L3), looks fantastic with a bright uniform shine. All factory panels are in good order with no damage and only light markings and a ding to the rear nearside corner. All glass, light rubbers and trim sections are fully intact and a very faint scuff to the nearside front bumper corner is barely noticeable. Originality seekers will be pleased to see all factory etched glass along with Ford main dealer number plates, rear screen sticker and tax disc holder. Having covered just 22,285 miles from new with the previous owner for 24 years, few examples have survived in this impressive condition.

INTERIOR
Trimmed in original Bluestone Fabric, (Code JH), the upholstery is very clean and intact with no rips or tears but does have some slight loosening of the material, a common occurrence in Fords of this era. Matching door cards and trim pieces are fully intact and the cut pile carpet is in excellent order, as is the Dawn Grey headlining. Free from cracks and damage is the delightfully retro dashboard and switchgear with all equipment working perfectly including the Ford stereo cassette. A comfortable, spacious and unspoilt modern classic Ford interior guaranteed to evoke fond nostalgia for many!

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The 1.8 EFi DOHC 4-cylinder engine produces 105bhp. The engine bay is very clean and well preserved with factory labels, stickers, plates and stampings to the wings and slam panel. A cambelt change has just carried out in November 2019 to offer complete peace of mind and ready to go classic motoring. The 5-speed manual gearbox is light and easy to use and the engine performs superbly.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The original 14in steel wheels are dressed in genuine Ford hubcaps which remain undamaged and in excellent order having been replaced. All four tyres are factory fitted premium brand Michelin 185/60 R14 which will satisfy originality seekers but replacement is advised if the car is to be used for anything other than the show circuit. Diagonally-split dual line servo assisted braking system with front discs and self-adjusting rear drums stop the car with assurance.

HISTORY FILE
Supplied by Ford Main Dealers, Perry’s of Aylesbury, this example was registered new on the 11th August 1993. The car has covered just 22,285 miles from new with just three keepers in total. In August 1995 the car was sold by Cowie Ford of Birmingham to Mr Michelangelo Flammia at which time the mileage was 10,000. Mr Flammia traded in his D registration Ford Sierra GL for £650 against the purchase price of £6,980 for the Orion and it was only upon his sad passing 24 years later that the car was bequeathed to his son, Antonio. The history file consists of the Cowie Ford purchase invoice along with the original Ford book pack with service book as well as some previous MOT certificates and invoices. There are two Ford keys. This fabulous 26 year old survivor is sure to please anyone seeking an entry into classic Ford ownership with this rare and well preserved car.

MOT August 2020, HPI Clear.
