hi to you all...

i have just purchased a ford fiesta chianti 1.3 p reg 1996 and can not get insurance on it due to the insurance companies not having it on their systems :( I have checked with the DVLA that it hasn't been modified of which it hasn't. The insurance companies have a 1.1 1.2 and 1.7 diesel but not the 1.3.

can anyone help and make any sugestions what i can do because after 2weeks i'm getting a bit fed up ???

This is a bit odd

It looks like you have a Mk.III Fiesta. The 1.3 in the Mk.III is a 1289. The 1.3 in the Mk.IV is a 1299

Got a feeling that this could be "Chicane"which was sort of a limited edition.
If not it could be "Frascati" also limited edition.
