Fiat Coupe 20v Turbo LE 147 - Steel Grey - 1998


Price: £7,295
Engine and Model: 2.0 20v Turbo LE (Limited Edition)
Mileage: 119,000
Body Colour: Steel Grey
Interior Colour and Material: Red and Black leather Recaro style, factory LE fitment.
Manufactured in: 1998
8 previous owners, 2 or 3 from this forum.
Just been MOT'd pass with no advisories after a fail the week before. Expires on 5th Sept 2024.

Known technical issues: NONE!

Had all mechanicals done! All belts, MOT and service, 4 new Toyos all round, new centre console and handbrake console, new thermostat, new battery, new rocker cover and seals, new horns, new silicone Hose of Death and a cambelt guard for peace of mind. Brake caliper refurb. All fluids and filters changed. Some work on brakes, 2 new rear tyres and new track rod ends with alignment to get it through MOT with NO advisories.
Solid underneath and very clean.
Great oil pressure when cold (straight to 3 bar and still very good when hot (between 2 and 2.5) Very smooth and tight from engine and gearbox and generally all round.

General Condition: Interior like new, seats and dash are immaculate, all centre console replaced.
No dents or scuffs and paintwork very good all over apart from the odd age related mark, must of been painted at some point as its still all very good. Only thing that needs attention is recently inner lip of arches are starting to get some surface rust from sitting around. Still very solid. I may get someone to look at it if I get some time etc...
Under the bonnet like new, brakes, wheels and tyres all in great condition.

Modifications: Just a stainless exhaust which sounds very subtle and not boomy. Sounds excellent.

Selling as just doesnt get used, 700 miles since last MOT. Classic car policy 2k miles per year and I pay around £200 ish roughly a year, cant quite remember but very cheap.


Full name: Maurizio Ferraro


Many thanks,

Maurizio

Classic Fords continue to rise and our cars are going down, doesn't make sense.

It is really strange. But I've never really understood the fascination with Fords - I get that some were rally cars but why that affects an Escort Mk 3 for example I've no idea.

The Cosworth models etc I get it, but I saw a mk1 1300 escort sell for £7000 the other month and nearly fell off my chair crazy

People buy cars on emotion, for many of a certain age an Escort was a first car with all the associations, freedom, memoiries etc. The car to aspire too was the XR3, Mexico or Cosworth but youngsters couldn't afford them so they added 'go faster' bits to their base models. Now those people have grown up and have some disposal income they can satisfy their old aspirations and hope to invoke their youth.
The coop was too exotic and rare for most youngsters and didn't have the image of the Fords, nor could they be like their mates as the coop was too rare.
Ironically for me the Escort invokes just the opposite emotions as it was the start of the end of my association with two wheels and represents an end to freedom, on top of that it was rubbish, always breaking down, full of rust and slow. One thing I never understand about classic cars is that many were never any good when they were new let alone 20, 30, 40 yrs later!
