Been on the bay for most of this year. One more advert and it gets a long service award...:D

Don't understand why it's not selling though, it's a tidy looking motor. Probably priced too high as it's not a mk1 Escort.

I thought that it was the paint job and sun visor were what was stopping it (not to my taste) but another mk3 with a 351 was also for sale much more subtle and that didn't sell either. There are quite a few mk3s on the market at the moment and none seem to be selling.

Anton had a real low mileage Mk3 Executive ( yes Mk3!!) rare as . It was really clean, never welded underneath and he struggled to get £2500 for it. I do like them, used to have a Mk3 Exec myself plus the old man had a floorchange Farnham estate Zephy 6 . Think they are overshadowed by the Mk2s?

I had a mk3 Zephyr fitted with a v6 in the late 90's, early 00's and couldn't give it away. They've never made good money and certainly no where near what they're worth in my opinion.

The Mark 3 was always my favourite of the big Fords, it was the first car that I remember being introduced (I was five when they came out ) and my first car was a Mk3 Zephyr 4.
There are 3or 4 on the market at the moment all under 5,000 and all not sold.
It seems that the only ones to make good money are the really clean original models and even then top money is around £8,000.

Might help if the head gasket was sorted (stated in listing) and could be driven home by the new owner / buyer , £10k is alot for something that seems highly priced and not really drivable and there could be other issues when the engine is pulled apart , im sure weve all been there and have a few T-shirts hahahahaha
