Unsurprisingly, the German built cars seem to have outlasted the Halewood built cars.
More pics from the Ford Press Dept re. the XR3s on the M4. Apparently the M4 pics were taken 27/11/80.

Great pics Ken and, although I used to hate them back in the day, I'm loving the XR3 that's resurfaced from the ad

A video of all them XR3s on the M4. Date was 24/11/80, and not 27/11/80 as originally thought.

I really like the XR3, XR3i, RS Turbos from this era.

Also like the XR4i & XR4x4 Sierras.

Crazy value in these old cars now but you have to start with something together and with all the bits there to make worthwhile!
