From Wiki: "The Fiesta was initially available in Europe with the Valencia 957 cc (58.4 cu in) I4 (high compression and low compression options), and 1,117 cc (68.2 cu in) engines and in Base, Popular, Popular Plus, L, GL (1978 onward), Ghia and S trim, as well as a van. The US Mark I Fiesta was built in Cologne, West Germany, but to slightly different specifications; US models were Base, Decor, Sport, and Ghia, the Ghia having the highest level of trim.[7] These trim levels changed very little in the Fiesta's three-year run in the US, from 1978 to 1980. All US models featured the more powerful 1,596 cc (97.4 cu in) engine, (which was the older "Crossflow" version of the Kent, rather than the Valencia) fitted with a catalytic converter and air pump to satisfy strict Californian emission regulations), energy-absorbing bumpers, side-marker lamps, round sealed-beam headlamps, improved crash dynamics and fuel system integrity as well as optional air conditioning (a/c was not available in Europe). In the US market, the Ford Escort replaced both the Fiesta and the compact Pinto in 1981, competing with the Chevrolet Chevette and Chevrolet Cavalier." So it appears that the first version was actually a Ford built product although not manufactured in the US.

Looks like a really cheap investment into a bunch of homebuilt EV's.

brakes & rotars turned 1 month ago
shampoo of seats done, $100 paid
wax done $100 paid
cleaned throttle body, replaced antifreeze reserve, rear oxygen sensor, ignition coil package, clutch master cylinder, shocks

Nice. I like the door setup. My 1950 Studebaker had a pillar. That upper latch-pin on the rear door looks to be 1-1 1/4" square. Not like an old VW bus.

The QuadCoupe doors are nice to use and make good access to the back seat, and the lack of a pillar makes stuffing a car seat back there easy... I loved that about my Redline...

Being an 04 engine you could check into a timing chain tensioner, as the early design ones are prone to failure... it’s like a $40 part and about an hour to change if you do your own work...

At that price though, you can’t really go too far wrong

Agreed, the doors are great, as are the stock transmission gear ratios. It is gonna turn a little over 2000 rpms at 60 mph.

I joined Offer Up to ask someone about his $500 Civic, but he never responded. Today Offer Up sent me an update with car-related things for sale in Payson, Arizona. Payson is a town halfway between Phoenix and Show Low. The McDonald's is open twenty-four hours. Not many people live there, but there is a great deal of traffic. It showed a recently-hosed 2001 Civic with a broken bumper and 112,000 miles for $1,200: https://offerup.com/item/detail/4769...10584755751730

I tried to find it on Craigslist, hoping they actually put details there, and in the end I found this guy:

To me, that is relatively new, but how tough of a life has it had that they are selling it for $1,500? How many miles does it have? What kinds of taxes and fees would it have? Where is this dealership? The website does not show an address. Searching for "Rick's Repos" does not show anything. I sent a text from Google Voice. We will see if he responds.

2004 honda civic 4 door - $1500

https://baltimore.craigslist.org/cto...605783391.html



I am selling my green 2004 Honda Civic. It has four doors and runs great and already inspected.The only things that are wrong with it is one of the door handles needs to be put back on that I still have and the trunk latch needs to be fixed. It has a little rust on the outside and normal wear and tear. The brake lines have just all been replaced. The back bumper is brand new. It has a little less than 200,000 miles.The engine needs a little cleaning.I'm asking $1,500 or best offer. If interested contact me at 410-918-8012 thank you
