1987 FORD FIESTA XR2 - 19,784 MILES

KEY FACTS

  • A remarkably original and low-mileage example of the marque’s 1980s hot hatch, and a fine contender for concours and car show competitions.
  • It is powered by the carburettor-fed 1.6-litre CVH engine producing 96bhp, coupled to a five-speed manual transmission.
  • The odometer shows 19,783 miles, which is fully evidenced by prior MOT certificates, stamped service history, and prior maintenance paperwork.

EQUIPMENT AND FEATURES

  • Finished in Diamond White with red pinstripe detailing, this XR2 retains the original grey cloth interior, which also has red pinstripe accents.
  • It rides on the correct 13-inch ‘pepperpot’ alloy wheels, now shod in Toyo Proxes tyres.
  • Factory equipment includes a sunroof, radio cassette head unit, heated rear screen, and front-mounted spot lamps.
  • Original features abound, including the number plates showing the 1987 supplying dealer of Keith Motors in Christchurch.
  • It is understood to be equipped with the original Ford exhaust system.

CONDITION

  • There is no known bodywork; indeed, the panels, glass and other trim are believed to be entirely original.
  • The Diamond White paintwork still looks superb for its age, with no obvious marks or blemishes, though the finish of the red ‘coachlines’ has flaked off in a few places.
  • Inside, the grey cloth upholstery is in excellent condition. There is very slight wrinkling due to age, and a hint of UV-caused discolouration to the outer bolsters; however, it would be accurate to say that the cabin is still in ‘time warp’ condition.
  • There are no known electrical or mechanical faults.
  • The most recent MOT test was on 16 August 2021 at 19,782 miles, when it achieved a first-time pass with no defects or advisory items.

SUMMARY

As a nostalgic throwback to the 1980s, the Ford Fiesta XR2 is hard to beat. It is arguably an underrated modern classic, and this example is in genuinely outstanding condition for its age, thanks to very low mileage and evident careful storage. A true ‘Blue Oval’ performance hero, this would make a great addition to any collection of fast Fords or other hot hatches.
