Sadly a time comes when all little boys have to grow up. For this big kid however it means I cannot afford to run a car for 6 months a year only and resort to using my company car when the weather is sloppy as I'm getting a van instead.

As a result of that, FRP #296 is now on the Market!

What I can offer is a n excellent running FRP in solid condition with an MOT running until January 2017 (yes, I even MOT'd it last week). She'd covered 27,000 on the odometer.

All work I've had done to it has been carried out by Elite Motortune in Northampton who are well renowned for the care and quality of their work.

I have been offered a Mk. 2 ST3 Focus plus cash which will bring to total value over 8,500, however I'd rather it go to an enthusiast rather then some kid who will break it and shove the engine in another bloody Zetec-S. I'm looking to do an exchange next week if possible so if anyone is interested they'd need to get their skates on.

History wise the car is known from this Forum when XIIVVX owned it pre-2010, since I had it the history I was given is as follows;

The guy I bought it from is a car lover himself (he had a tidy AMG parked on his driveway) and happily explained that the car went to Chris Birkbeck racing as a rolling chassis in a job lot of part-FRP's, it was put together so someone at CB racing could give it to their wife. Then she didn't want it so it was sold on. He bought it then discovered he doesn't have enough time himself to use it so would rather see it getting used.

All the usual rust spots (i.e. arches, door cils and underside) are immaculate, the paint work only has a few very minor scratches and very little in the way of stone chipping, the Zetec pulls and spits on demand, and the handling is perfect. I'm sad to be letting it go, but circumstances change and I need a better

It is something of a mongrel due to the mixed heritage between 154 and 296, but to be honest that's hardly a problem for what is a great example (with a lo milage engine to boot) that is also extremely well bolted together.
