It's my new year resolution to stop delaying and sell my old car. I need the cash to spend on bit for my car pc.
Anyway here are the details:
It's a 1997 R reg with only 49k miles on the clock.
Only one other owner before me.
It's a 1.4l Encore, 5 door hatchback with manual gearbox, painted metallic dark red (maroon, or burgundy... not really sure what the difference is.)
It's got the Ford CD Player, which I thinks pretty good. It's either double din or 1.5 din, I can't remember. I did plan to mould a 7" there before i changed cars.
It's also got power steering and and driver's airbag, and I'm fairly sure it's got a factory fitted alarm.
The other main advantage is that it's only an insurance group 4 so the insurance is low for the younger driver.
I've fitted a pair of JBL speakers to the back shelf.
It's also got some pretty sweet 5 spoke ford alloys off my brother's Focus which give's it slightly wider tyres than standard for an Escort. I'll throw in the old steel wheels into the bargain, and they have nearly new rubber on them (plenty of thread).
The reason I chose to sell the car was a friend of mine was selling an old BMW at a really good price, so I just wanted to change to something with a bit more power.
I want £1950 for it, but am open to sensible offers. The car is based in Birmingham but I can bring it to London on weekends if someone wants to look at it.
I've included a few photos below to show you what it looks like, and also share some of my happy memories with this car.
