Is the car a private purchase or from a garage?

Car looks well cared for and for an eighteen year old vehicle low mileage. Never really had any major problems with my MK1 in six years of ownership however most items seem to have been covered on this vehicle anyway. Seats have been repaired at some stage as the bases have been stitched, steering wheel on mine was rough. It would be nice to know what software the car has installed as mine always had a hesitation at about 4k revs which got worse when Ford upgraded from AE to AF Ford wouldn't let me revert back as AE as its was the lesser of two evils. My brakes always squealed and I never did cure it. 

 

Check pedal rubbers as mine were badly worn and you can't change them so its a new assembly or after market. MK1's have certainly appreciated as I traded mine in in 2009 for 8k when I purchased my MK2, two owners low mileage. Good luck with viewing this car.

looks like all the bad bits from previous MOT's has been addressed

I'd ask if there's any warranty with the new engine rebuild & find out who did the work

Looks a tidy car, I'd say it's had paintwork at some point given quality in pictures with that kind of mileage. I don't think the bases have been repaired previously, the cross stitching was a modification Ford made about 12 months into production due original bases lifting. Based on prices I've scene looks good.

Thanks guys. Cant get to see it until Friday unfortunately but hopefully all goes well.

Ive been looking for a weekend car for a while now and initially swayed towards a mk2 but the way prices have gone the last 6 months or so I just cant afford a decent one so been looking out for a mk1.

This has popped up literally 5 mins from me so Im hoping its a sign and its a good one. Will keep yous posted.

Cheers again.

Interesting replacement pedal rubbers were not available when I had my MK1. I did a post on the problem at the time.

Well the car was pretty rough unfortunately so have given it a miss.

Will keep my eyes peeled for another one.

If anyone knows of any for sale. Please let me know.
