This Sierra was bought by Practical Classics Magazine in 2010 having spent much of the previous decade being patched up for the next MoT. The magazine stripped it down, repaired a small selection of rusted bodywork and structure and replaced the suspension and brakes. Bodyshop 3000 in Baston, Lincolnshire, prepared and painted the body last year and we've spent the intervening time sourcing and fitting a host of rather hard-to-find mechanical, trim and electrical parts. Proving again it is much easier getting bits for a 50-year-old MG than it is for an Eighties Ford. Now the XR4i just needs a replacement parcel shelf and a couple of decent door cards before being a show car. It comes with a new dashboard and is sold with 6 months MoT and a months tax. Not perfect but a drive it home bargain in waiting.
