Ford Sierra Azura 1.8cvh estate 1993 - Was £2500 now reduced to only 2000 Pounds!


Recommended Posts

After a decade of reliable, faithful service it's time to sell our Sierra Azura estate. 1.8cvh with 5 speed manual gearbox

It's a 1993 car so one of the last ever Sierras - someone probably walked past a brand new Mondeo and bought this (and quite right too!)
It's a special edition Azura - it's pretty basic though, I think it was just the alloy wheels that they added

It's done 130,000 miles (nearly half of those with me behind the wheel) and until a few weeks ago, never given me any mechanical trouble at all. We've been all over the place in it and it really is the best car I've ever owned in terms of looking cool and not letting me down

The reason it's up for sale now is that the engine seized (I'm told just the bottom, the head seems to be ok - I was also told the cam belt was totally fine)

I can't really afford to have the 1.8cvh rebuilt or buy a replacement engine and I'm not man enough to attempt anything myself either ;-(

This could be the opportunity for someone with more skill than me to sort the original engine themselves or to drop something more exciting in there

It's been properly serviced every year and anything needed for the MOT has been done to a good standard - yes it's had some welding underneath, it's also had new sills and rear arches and a replacement rear bumper - it doesn't currently need anything doing to it apart from a few cosmetic bits and bobs. It has 4 new matching Goodyear tyres. It has an obligatory 90s big bore back box but apart from that (and a load of stickers) it's completely standard

I've filled the boot with all the Sierra spares that I've accumulated over the years and this will all be thrown in with the price. There's all sorts, a front bumper, headlights, rear lights, indicators, wing mirrors, door glass, handles, dash clocks, trim etc.

MOT until December 2021

Located in South East London and I work from home so viewing can be arranged pretty much whenever suits you

£2500

Contact me on here or get me on 07939 206540

Obviously it can't be driven as it is so it will need to be trailered away to its new home

I really love this car so it's been a tough decision and I'll not be giving it away

Good luck with the sale Stuart

Seems odd seeing a CVH pointing the right way 👍

 

Never realised they even did this-car looks tidy by the way.

Is it on eBay Stuart?

Personally I don't like selling on eBay due to their extortionate fees, but in situations like this, an auction could go mad for your car.

I'm hoping to avoid eBay but it does feel kind of inevitable that it'll end up on there - I will give it a bit longer though, I'd love to just go directly to a fellow old Ford head - potentially got someone coming round tomorrow

I'd love this with a nice V8 in it-should have sold at that price!

yeah it's weird, I'm aware of a couple of Sierras up for sale at the moment and for some reason they haven't sold. I thought I'd put this up online and it'd be gone in a couple of days

 

I'd love to see this old thing with something fruity under the bonnet!

I'm still too stupid to work out how to edit a post but anyway,

price drop down to £2000

Helped out a bit with that.

Cant believe this hasnt sold! Im in the market for a moderate sized Estate but they are few and far between here with our obsessive ute culture. I am told we have Mondaeo Estates but I have never even seen one on the road let alone one for sale! If I was in the UK I would have already been knocking at your door to check it out.

We had a Sierra Estate when we lived in Germany and the kids were little. Was a good car and served us well. 

Mondeo is a big car, but never had one in an estate. ST220 estates are about in the UK as a 3.0 V6 and are just slowly starting to rise in price, although not silly. Surprised me that they have a fairly strong club following too.

Ahhhh they are big then? Hmm it really needs to be more on the smaller side but not a mini but something with a 2lt four would be ideal. Something larger with a V6 would be a bit of an overkill. A 1.8 CVH would definitely do nicely!

Sierra is not really big, but plenty of room for a family. We had 2 toddlers, but would use a roof box when travelling to the UK from Germany. 

Mondeo basically replaced the Sierra, but is notably bigger. They will protrude out of a UK supermarket bay. I only suggested the 3.0 V6 as this is the sportier ST version. There are plenty of smaller and capable engined versions at about 2.0 and I also think there is a 1.8 zetec version. Also available as diesels in various CC's. 

The 1.8 Sierra in this post is a good old bus and would make a lovely project. This engine can be rebuilt as a ZVH, which is a combo of the original CVH and a Zetec, or just rebuilt as is. 

I half fancied it, but was a bit short of the original asking price. However, I've since just bought a project Mondeo ST, so now got even less money 😂

I thought the Sierra here looked a bit more in my size range. I really like it from what I see here.  It would be great if only they were sold here! You guys get all the good cars, we get the left over South East Asian stuff that's not really suited to Australia. We now even get Utes called the Great Wall. I presumed its because no one can get past when they brake down and block the road. One year they got a "0" safety car rating as the seatbelts weren't even bolted to the floor properly. Chinese plastic trim under 5 years of Australian UV sun? There are going to be alot of coloured powder and plastic fragments on many carpets with owners wondering where their switches have gone!

Sierra's got a very negative reception when they were first introduced in the UK. Jelly Mould was the common derogatory term aimed at them and people preferred the Cortina

In the 80s here an idiot politician got this strange idea that there were too many different types of cars and the market needed to be simplified so the car companies were given tax concessions if they all shared their designs and rebadge the same cars. It was called the "Button Car Plan". It saw unique car design in the 80s totally plummet. Everything was bland and looked the same. You could even get a Ford Ute rebadged as a Nissan! For us seeing something as unique as a Sierra on a a racetrack was manor from heaven!
