In August of 1983, the production of the Mk1 Ford Fiesta was finished and replaced by the Mk2 version as seen on this listing. The Mk2 had near enough the same bodyshell but was given a new smoother front end and re-styled tailgate. With the launch of the new Mk2, there were a handful of launch colours. These include Diamond White, Strato Silver, Glacier Blue, Black and Sunburst Red. As seen from the pictures, this example has been finished in Sunburst Red with an appealing Black Rainbow Cloth interior.
The exterior of this classic car is presented very nicely in Sunburst Red and has been well preserved and wholly original throughout. There are only a couple of discreet areas having ever been re-painted, but the rest is all entirely original. Considering this is a car from 1983, you’d expect there to be at least some scrapes on the original paintwork. However, as this car has been well preserved, there are no scuff marks or scratches to report on as well as there being no fading issues.
Not only is the exterior quite original, but the interior is also very original with the factory cassette radio still in place. The finish on the seats are trimmed in black cloth with coloured pinstripes which just screams the 80s when you see them. Not only the seats, but the door trims also have the coloured pinstripes.
Like with every classic car, there is always an extensive history file, and this Mk2 Fiesta is no exception. The XR2 Mk2 was first registered back in October of 1984 and was supplied factory new by Clark’s motors in Somerset. The history file is also complete with the dealer-supplied book pack, owner’s manual, invoices and a handful of past MOT certificates.
