And so it is.
The seller then goes on to detail a bit of the European Ford Escort's history.
What he doesn't explain is how and when this car got here and what condition it is in.
From what I can tell from the pictures, this Escort is in nice shape. I can see no major dents or rust. The interior has the type of wear you expect to see on an older car, but would probably clean up fairly nicely. All I can say about the engine is that it is there. He shows a picture of service records, so it might be safe to assume that this car has been taken care of.
Towards the end of his ad, the seller writes; "Owning a little two seater convertible sports car is cool, owning a little two seater convertible sports car that was never imported into the country is even cooler." Although this is technically not a two seater - you could put two people you really don't like in the tiny back seat - I know what he means and I agree.
If the car is in the condition it appears to be in and if it runs well, the $2500.00 asking price is very reasonable.
