1985 Fiesta 1.1 Popular Plus

 
 

The Ford Fiesta Mk2 1.1 Popular Plus, I liked this car, we did an awful lot of miles in this and have some happy memories travelling in this car. As usual it was utterly reliable and never gave any bother, the only thing I changed was the carburettor, I heard some horror stories about the VV carb fitted as standard to many Ford's so I changed mine to a Weber type and this gave good starting, economy and power. This car inherited my first Fiesta's alloy wheels and I managed to acquire an XR2 interior which was in perfect condition. The only reason I got rid of this car was the dreaded rust which was beginning to appear on the arches after a hard salty winter.
