Mk1 Fiesta Or Is It?

7 posts in this topic

i own a mk1 fiesta but there's a problem the car is classed as a mk1 on all the paper work and was made in 83 which was the last year they made the mk1 and the shell and interiour is mk1 but everything else is mk2 e.g. lights,bonnet, grill, bumpers, skirts and doors and more and people always correct me when i say its a mk1 my opinion is that it was one of the last to come off production and they just fitted mk2 parts to the car the car has not been touched since it left the factory but im just not sure if its a late fiesta modal or just really rare someone please reply with an answer before i do work to it and ruin the value?

Have you got a picture.

This is a Mk 1:

Here's a Mk 2:

It doesn't matter what interior its got, its the shell that matters. If it was the last of the Mk1's it may have benefited from having the Mk 2 interior.

I could understand the interior of a Mk1 XR2 being put in it. Mk 2 seats will go in but need the Mk 1 runners.

Is this the dash you have?

If so that is a Mk2 dash.

Somebody has probably updated the interior at some stage with Mk 2 bits. Over the years there would have been plenty available and pretty cheap to.

okay so this dash is similar and im the second owner and know the first owner and she is a little old women who used it to go back and forth to the shops it has never had anything done to it ever the car is in very good condition runs very well it has little miles nothing hes ever needed to be changed so i know if anything as been changed this is why im asking because she bought it new and cheap at a ford sales place because it was the older modal she didnt even know that any thing was different from a standard modal when we asked her about it!

Ahhh, the good old supersport, I use to own a black one, I was the envy of all my friends haha. Gearbox mount had gone, so the gear stick would shoot all over the place when I put my foot down then let off again. Soon got that fixed, and it became my baby for a while :-)
