This 33-year-old Ford Sierra Cosworth is set to fetch a cool £100k at auction because it’s claimed to be ‘the best one in the UK’ of only 500 ever made.
We only have to take a look into our archives and current competitions to see that Fords are becoming increasingly popular.
Earlier this year we ran a Ford Mustang competition where over four thousand tickets flew off the shelf and one lucky winner was handed the keys after spending just £7.50 on his ticket.
We also ran a draw to win a 1991 Ford Sierra Sapphire which only had just over 4,500 miles on the clock. Another incredibly popular competition prize.
Our latest competition Ford is our awesome 1979 Ford Escort RS2000. A similar low-mileage MKII Escort RS2000, also finished in Diamond White, sold at Silverstone Auctions in 2017 for a whopping £97,000!
So could this mean the estimation on this Ford Sierra Cosworth could well be accurate? We’ll have to wait and see..
If you don’t happen to have 100 grand burning a hole in your back pocket though, you could spend just £15 on a ticket for our 1979 Ford Escort RS2000 competition instead and join our many classic car winners. It could well be worth a small fortune if Fords continue to flourish!
The original task was to install new, upgraded carbs to our 1979 Ford Escort but having seen the carbs that Mr B was hoping to have fitted we advised that this would not be a suitable choice.
Whilst in, we decided to correct the running issues that had occurred. We carried out a cylinder leakage test and adjusted the valve clearance. we replaced the spark plugs and the gaskets.
We were also informed of a stop light issue on the rear so whilst in our workshops we fixed the fault.
