1996 Ford Fiesta MkIII pick-up

Unusual conversion from 3-door panel van to pick-up with 1.8 diesel power - stand out from the crowd

Dating from May 1996 this late model MkIII Fiesta was originally a 3-door panel van commercial with the 1.8 naturally aspirated diesel engine driving the front wheels via 5-speed manual transmission.

This example has evidently been converted at some point to become a pick-up of sorts, with aluminium checker plate hinged lid for access with no drop down tail.  Finished in white with blue RS stickers the Fiesta has undergone two colour changes in its varied life from original silver to blue in 2011 then blue to the white we see in September 2015.  Wearing 4-spoke Ford alloy wheels, it also has both forward and rear facing spot lights controlled by two switches above the left leg of the driver. Inside we find a couple of sporty seats and solid rear bulkhead.

In the history file we see the V5C showing 11 former keepers to our vendor, a Ford marque enthusiast and collector  who has been the custodian since December 2015, 4 old MOTs, an invoice dated July 2018 for £296 spent on new coolant, new LED strobe lights, new rocker cover gasket, new alternator belt, and wiring repair at 63,829 miles and bill for a lube service in January 2016.  Coming with a current MOT valid until January 2022 with two advisories for corrosion to a suspension mounting OSF and play in a wheel bearing it is ready to be put to work or play.
