MOT: August 2023
Launched in 1980, at the same time as the Ford Escort finally went front drive, the XR3 was a huge success for the Blue Oval. Initially, the Ford trailed its Golf GTi rival in terms of performance and handling but Rod Mansfield’s Special Vehicle Engineering team in Dunton were let loose on it and in 1982 a fuel injected XR3i was launched with thorough mechanical upgrades to engine, gearbox and suspension. Suddenly the fast Escort was far closer to its VW rival in handling terms and even pipped the Golf on top speed for a while. 1986 saw a wholesale facelift of the Escort range to create the Mk4. The more refined styling of the Mk4 XR3i was mirrored in a more civilised and comfortable drive. Between the September 1989 and September 1990 the XR3i received Ford’s own EEC-IV fuel injection and engine management, these cars being known as EFi cars. Other changes to the CVH engine were a reworked cylinder head, plastic sections to the air intake running over the rocker cover, revised manifold, gas-flowed ports and new camshaft timing. EFi cars can be clearly identified by the lettering on the cast alloy inlet manifold and came with the previously optional Lattice alloy wheels, a slightly different profile for the rear wing and a deeper front bumper.
We are delighted to offer this superb 1989 Ford Escort XR3i EFi, finished in Mercury Grey with “Zolda” cloth trim. The car was originally supplied to a Mr Donahue by Dagenham Motors in Barking according to the original service book. This also records 11 service stamps from the early part of its life, most of which are Ford main dealer, taking it up to 2002 and 57,000 miles. The speedometer was replaced at 91,000 miles with a second-hand item that was showing a little over 30,000 miles, giving a total mileage to date of around 95,000. The vendor has supplied a folder containing a large stack of mainly parts invoices. There has been significant recent expenditure in the last few years including new drive shafts, battery, brake shoes and pads, track control arms, wishbone control arms, coil springs, front shocks, Goodridge stainless brake pipes and a £250 Autowatch 346 alarm system. For additional security it is also fitted with a Cobra immobiliser. Sensibly, the recent suspension work was followed up with a 4-wheel alignment and a further 2-wheel alignment when the front shocks were done last year.
Outside, the paint presents beautifully and the rubbers and plastics all look good. The wheels are free of kerbing and shod with matching Pirelli rubber. The spot lights are in great condition and display the requisite Ford branding. The interior does not let the exterior down and is pleasingly original. The interior fabrics are clean and the car benefits from upgraded Recaros which look beautiful in their matching “Zolda” fabric. The vendor will supply the original front seats with the car and advises that they are also in great condition. The dash is free from cracks and it’s pleasing to see the original stereo in place and a rear parcel shelf unsullied by aftermarket speakers. The carpets are good and protected by a recently acquired set of genuine floor mats. The XR3i was never a particularly generously specified car but this example benefits from electric windows and mirrors and a factory-fit, manual, glass sunroof. In the boot the full size spare alloy is present and correct, along with the original tools and jack.
This particular XR3i has featured twice in magazine articles, most recently to illustrate the Classics World Mk4 XR3i buyer’s guide but before that in a twin against the Astra GTE in Classic Car Mart, a copy of which comes with the car. Also present are a spare set of keys with immobiliser fob, V5C, full book pack, various old MOTs and tax discs, the copy of Classic Car Mart and some handy technical information on the vehicle.
This is a fantastic example of one of the definitive hot hatches of the 80s. Fast Fords continue to be hot property but seldom do XR3s come around as nice as this – grab it while you can!
