Registered new on 4th August 1981 by Ford Main Dealers, South Essex Motors (SEM), to Mr Gregory of Wickford.  Having long term ownership is best described as fastidious with a 1981 diary revealing the mileage at every fuel stop and when and what maintenance works were/has been carried out

This log covers 46 pages of hand written entries up to 78,687 miles and the currant mileage is now 84,457

The condition, without exception, reflects a loving ownership partly revealed by the diary and in the perfect originality of the car itself.  In the care of some very high profile Ford collectors since and now ready for the next custodian

A SEM wallet containing all the Ford handbooks remains with the car.  Original Ford key,  fits all locks and the ignition.  Representing a fantastic element of Ford’s historic sporting pedigree, this hugely collectable model has become virtually impossible to source in such an unmolested, preserved and original condition.
