This car presents very well both inside and out, a fantastic choice as a modern classic Ford.
Registered new on the 25th of June 1999, and supplied by Gowrings of Wokingham.
Purschased by the second owner on the 19th of January 2001, and with the second owner it remained until the 21st of May 2004.
This means the car has remained with this owner for over 14 years.
When we purchased the vehicle, the owner showed us the heated garage where it was kept for the 14 years, and both himself and his wife both explained that before the car was used, the weather forecast was always checked. Clearly a well loved vehicle, and very rare in this condition.
A superb history file compliments the car perfectly, displaying all the original booklets within the original Ford wallet, along with 2x Ford keys, lots of Sorn declaration forms, some 14 MOT certificates and 12 service receipts / stamps.
The car still proudly display the supplying dealer rear window sticker, and the original dealer plates are with the car – currently wearing a pair of new dealer plates.
Having had a service carried out in July 2018 (at 54,558 miles) which included a brake fluid change, oil, oil filter, air filter and new genuine Ford lower front suspension arms, you can rest assured this example is ready to be enjoyed.
Body & Paintwork
The Radiant Red paintwork on this Mondeo ST24 is still in great condition.
A great gloss shine and no ‘fading’ of the red paintwork.
All panels are original with original paintwork, other than the rear bumper which has been repainted at some point due to marking from storage.
We have had the car machine polished and it looks simply fantastic from top to bottom!
Some chipping to the front bumper and bottom is present, although this is minor and of course to be expected from original paintwork of this mileage.
All wheels also appear to be in original finish and are in good condition, save for a few small marks as you would expect.All glass is correct, as are the badges and light.
The wheels all have matching Firestone tyres which have done very little mileage.
A very well presented example, with none of the corrosion issues that is so common to see on these cars when they do appear for sale.
Interior & Trim
As per the exterior, the interior of this car is in great condition and clearly demonstrates loving ownership.
No modifications have been carried out, with the original steering wheel, gear knob, stereo and even pedal rubbers all being present and in good order.
A pair of fitted carpet mats cover the undamaged carpet, and all seats are superb with just a very slight showing of age to the drivers bolster – this is very minor indeed.
Everything works correctly, and all switch gear is in good condition – the digital clock also has no missing pixels.
everything is just as Ford intended and could certainly fool people in to thinking this was only a 20k mile example.
At the time of release Ford had quite a big marketing campaign for the Mondeo ST24, and in no small part was the 2.5 V6 the star of the show.
With 168bhp and 162lb ft of torque giving the Mondeo ST24 a great mile munching driving appeal.
This example is totally unmodified and exactly as Ford intended.
A superb growl is emitted from the V6, and the engine pulls smoothly through the rev range, an absolute joy to drive.
The engine bay itself present very well as can be seen in the pictures and having been lovingly cared for its entire life, the car has no unwanted noises or smoking.
With a recent service having been carried out you can look forward to many miles of trouble free motoring enjoyment.
As you would expect from such a well maintained and loved car, all running gear is in fine working condition.
On the last MOT the front lower arm bushes were advised, so these have been replaced with genuine Ford items.
The car drives brilliantly, with a superbly comfortable ride, and no unwanted noises at all.
Brakes are still impressive, and pull straight of course.
The gearbox and clutch are a joy to operate, and all wheels are in good order with matching Firestone tyres fitted all round which have covered few miles.
A genuinely lovely car to drive and enjoy.
