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

Have you tried running the car through an online insurance comparison. Try confused.com or comparethemarket (not to be confused with comparethemeerkat, simples)

Give it a go...

Got a feeling that this could be "Chicane"which was sort of a limited edition.

If not it could be "Frascati" also limited edition.
