I think you must have the luck of many many many people, MK2 fiesta's must be getting very rare now, unless the are xr2 and rs spec models. The seats look to have been very well cared for. I had a few early fiesta's, dog legs, inside rear wheel arch rot outwards, battery trays have known to fall through and front and rear valence seams can rot through very quickly once it sets in. Apart from that I wish you luck with this one Jim, having said all that if it hasn't gone yet, it must be a very lucky fezza. Dont sell this one to quickly, I'm really looking forward to your progress.

At least you do it properly, not a load of fibreglass and filler. Keep it coming.

Seriously cool little Ford and looks in good condition!

Two of my mates had a MKII Fiesta back when we all started driving (1999/2000). Sadly one friend's car was written off by a drink driver and only had about 29k on the clock and was over 15 years even then.
