Starting to get the shakes from not buying things car related? Fear not, H&H Classics has your back with its online-only auction this April 29 and features four tasteful fast Fords.
First up is a 1967 Ford Mustang 390 GT Fastback, a model that was immortalised by Steve McQueen in Bullitt all those years ago with one of the all-time best car chases in cinema history.
Damian Jones, head of sales for H&H Classics, said: ““We understand the nut and bolt restoration it has been treated to accounted for some 3,800 man hours, and we can well believe it – apparently £25,000 was invested in the paint alone. According to the accompanying Marti report, this matching numbers Fast Ford was built at the company’s Metuchen plant on July 13, 1967 where it was sprayed in Burnt Amber and equipped with the standard Black bucket seats. Its big block, big carburettor ‘S’ code 390ci engine was linked to a four-speed manual transmission driving through a 3.25:1 limited slip differential, and the specification additionally included: the desirable GT Equipment Group performance package; F70-14 wide oval tyres with White sidewalls; AM radio; and the exterior Décor Group option.”
It’s estimated to fetch between £60k and £70k.
Also for sale is a 1990 Ford Sierra Sapphire RS Cosworth. The Saph Cossie was recently treated to a respray in its original factory colour in 2019 and has just 31,189 miles on the clock. It’s estimated between £18k and £22k.
Third in the list of fast Fords is a 1993 Ford Escort RS Cosworth, which was imported from Hong Kong to the UK in 2013, and then recommissioned for three years following. It underwent a full strip down and overhaul over those years and is said to have moved little since then. As a result, mileage is warranted at just 25,454… It is estimated between £38k and £42k.
Last but by no means least is the hot-hatch hero that is the 1982 Ford Fiesta XR2. This example has undergone a complete professional bare metal body and mechanical restoration in the past. This example has done a recorded 89,000 miles and is estimated between £18k and £22k.
