Additional Information
HISTORY FILE
Assembled at the Ford Saarlouis Plant, Germany in April 1985 and registered new on the 16th August 1985 on a ‘C’ plate prefix, this very late MK3 XR3i was supplied new by Ford Main Dealers Bristol Street Motors Limited of Birmingham. Previous long term owner, Mr Phillip Woods who in fact has owned the car twice, was a regular attendee on the Ford Fair Concours and show scene in the mid to late 1990’s and the car won many awards. Entered bi-annually in the Ford XR Owners Club National Days in 1996,1997,1998 and 1999, the car won in the Standard Factory Class on all eight occasions with trophies still with the car! The car was always trailered to shows but secretly driven off close to the venue resulting in less preparation time before the show! It was kept in a heated garage at all other times. In 2001, Mr Woods made the decision to sell, something he soon became to regret, but as luck would have it, he spotted a classified advert with it for sale in Edinburgh in 2004 whereby he promptly took a flight from Staffordshire and drove the car home!

A neatly presented history folder contains a huge file of receipts and Ford main dealer invoices as well as previous MOT certificates dating back to the very first in 1988. There are two sets of original keys and one key fits all locks. Sold by KGF Classic Cars to Mark Bailey, creator of the famous Bonkers Collection in January 2020 only to be part-exchanged against our 17,000 mile Series One RS Turbo. This outstanding XR3i will appeal to a serious collector or enthusiast wanting a fabulous proven example of an iconic and fast appreciating icon that has played a huge part in the history of Fast Fords.
