This is an unrepeatable opportunity to purchase a truly outstanding Ford Escort 1100L that has covered just 11992 miles from new and comes with an extensive history to include the original bill of sale and all original handbooks. LLE 719V was supplied new by Ford agents Godfrey Davis (London) Ltd to a Mr J Mellor of Kingsbury, North London, invoiced on the 18th January 1980. Including factory deliver charge, a passenger door mirror, reflective number plates and four gallons of fuel, the Ford was charged out at £3348.98. The vehicle was supplied new in Cordoba with a Beige/Chocolate interior and is today still in totally original specification.
The Ford spent from 1980 to 2007 with Mr and later registered to Mrs Mellor and extensive paperwork has been kept with the car. We have MOT certificates dating back to 1988, supplying dealer warranty work paperwork from 1980 and invoices for maintenance and service work right throughout the 1990's and 2000's. Remarkably, the Ford has spent most of its life roadworthy, it has just covered very low mileage each year and proven from the MOT certificates that run from the late 1980's to date.
The car is an absolute time warp and could be mistaken for six months old. The engine bay is immaculate and beautifully detailed. The bodyshell is rust free, the underside top class and paintwork is exceptional throughout. The original upholstery is like new, it even smells like new. On the road the Escort is as expected when new with a perfect engine, faultless gearbox, sharp efficient brakes and direct steering. This is probably as close to brand new as one could find and there is no doubt this is a true collectors piece that must be preserved and kept in this beautiful, original condition with careful ownership.
