Ford Fiesta XR2 Turbo
Hi everyone. Been a while since I was last on her since I sold My Tommi Mak last year. Had a few cars since that and this is by far one of the better ones I have owned.
Putting it up for sale to try and focus on another project.
Ford Fiesta XR2 Turbo
1987 (E plate)
Reg:- E804 WDM
Current odometer reading – 76,700 (will rise slightly with very limited weekend use)
MOT – Feb 2020
4 previous owners
£265 per year car tax.
Car is running 198 BHP with 220 LBS FT of torque. Very quick car and a great looking sleeper.
Some service history including some original paperwork and dealer items etc. Pics available.
Car History which has been pieced together from previous owners.
Car was bought new from Allitts Motors – Rhyl in Wales on 01/08/1987 by a Mrs Joan & Mr Frederick Jemmett and was registered on the same day.
Car was then passed onto a Jemmett family member up until around 1996. Mr Dan Stephenson then bought the car after he passed his driving test in 1996. Mr Dan Stephenson owned the car for around 10 years and then sold the car but on 28/08/2011 was bought again by Mr Dan Stephenson of Liveredge, West Yorkshire with approx. 72,500 miles.
Unfortunately, the paper recorded history for the car from 1987 to 2011 is minimal but there is some evidence within the history file which does include the original Ford user guide cassette tape and original Ford air freshener. There is also an original recall notice from Allitts Motors in 1988 and the Ford user manuals and booklet/wallet is present.
Car was off the road and was subject to an extensive full restoration in 2011 to 2014 whereby all rust and rot was removed from the car. This included, inner wings, wings, floor, boot, sills & engine bay. A full engine, dash, interior & glass out project to remove all major metal work related issues. Complete full re-spray in Diamond White along with a full car underseal.
All documented in a full photo pack and USB memory stick
At the same time the original engine was removed from the car with approx. 72,556 miles (on the shell) and was replaced with a fully forged bored out to 2.1 ltr Mondeo all steel bottom end and EFI RS Turbo engine with approx. 46,463 miles. Engine was fully stripped and re-commissioned with various new/recon high-performance parts. Full spec on separate document.
Original engine is stored but will need a full re-commission and rebuild if this is to be used.
Car was then put back on the road in Dec 2014 by Mr Dan Stephenson with approx. 73,926 miles (on the shell) and used up until 2016 to when it was then sold to a Mr Barry King of Stanley, Co. Durham on 21/07/2016.
Mr Barry King did a total of 50 miles in the first 2 years of ownership from 2016 to 2018 and then garaged the car due to the death of a family member.
In February 2019 Mr Barry King put the car back on the road with a new MOT and service and used the car for a total of approx. 1000 miles before selling to Mr Philp Murray of Browney, Co. Durham on 13/07/2019. Car mileage was 76,472 (photo in history file if required).
In the ownership of Mr Philip Murray, the car has undergone a full engine refresh along with a host of other car service related requests at EvoTune in Langley Moor, Co. Durham. All details are within the service history file.

Please do not get me wrong the car is not perfect in any way and does have some bad points. After all this is a 32 year old car.
Bad Points (pics can be sent)
Front bumper & plastics around the car has minor cracking in areas.
Slight paint bubble on the bonnet.
Fuel gauge does not work with custom fuel tank.
Rev counter not working as the car is controlled via an ECU
Please note that the car is low mileage and please be sure that I think you will be hard pushed to find a car that has had a better few months than this. I have spent a great deal of time, money and effort prepping this car to what it is now. The car wants for nothing and is ready to enjoy and drive.
