Hi, its a 1981 4dr saloon.14000 miles. Needs a little tidy up exterior wise. Not a bad car though. Looking forward to making it mine. Will post pics soon.

Welcome aboard. Nice find at that mileage. What are your plans?

Thanks guys. Undecided on whether to restore or modify at the moment. Swaying for a zetec conversion, type 9, 60mm drop on 7x13 superlights. I'll keep you all updated when I make decision.
