1979 Ford Fiesta Rally Tribute

1979 Ford Fiesta Rally Tribute
Originally built in Western Germany this little Fiesta has been in California all of its life. It still bears the original blue and yellow California license plates.
The engine was rebuilt less than 100 miles ago and is still in its breaking in period. It was built up to give the car a fun driving experience. The car itself has 52,000 miles.
The exterior was finished to a very high standard with period correct RS flares with aggressively fitted tires on the optioned 13″ wheels. The panel fitment and gaps are very good. All the exterior glass is in good condition.
The car starts easy, pulls well and is very, very tight on the steering / brakes. Its ready for canyon fun, car shows.
Clean California title, car shop manual, misc. receipts including engine rebuild, spare wheel and tire.
This car looks stunning from outside, and inside with an incredibly detailed paint job in showroom condition.
