    i have finally got one!a nice 3.0s!yes!!!!!
    must admit having been into the mk3 escorts for the past 10 years ,i had forgot what a great sound the 3.0s makes!102k mot and taxed
    has had a lot of work but done well!every mot from new even original bill of sale!recent cills,rear arches,welding to the spring hangers[as per usual!lol]recent respray again to a good standard!
    needs a little tlc to the rear seats[again per usual]stripes need re-doing and alloys could do with a refurb!
    engine is so sweet!does need engine bay cleaning tho and so does the boot !
    in all a nice usable 3.0s!

    I think BLACK (A9) was a special order for the 3.0S ! As it was too for the Ghia ?? Should have a label or sticker thing on the inner NS wing ??

    I like 3.0S's :smokin:
