xr4i
« on: February 21, 2014, 23:49:31 PM »
Hi Guys
here's my 83 xr4i
I drive it most days or I'm in my 89 supercoupe
I'm by southend airport
just fitted a ashley exhaust system inc headers... and a momo steering wheel
using these wheels off of my Cortina as they have a new set of avons on them..
I have a set of 15" rs7 softlines that I'll put back on it soon I think..

cheers all for the great comments...
bought it for Christmas ...lol..
just had to have it  its very straight 68k with all history..
I'm very happy with it to the point that all my other toys are feeling well left out..
I have a 2 door mk5 with a well hot pinto sitting next to it on a hoist,
 just can't get motivated now I have this 4i.

had this Cortina 15 years and I last drive it year 2000..lol
it been in my garage ever since it stripped it's belt and I put it into storage ,,
its done 43k and its unmolested time warp condition never welded or repaired..
I recently met a bloke who said he won the 2012 sierra lightening rods and I bought his race 205 block pinto off him with a 40/40 dfav webber,
he said he built the motor fresh and he gave me all the bills.
and its140hp on the rolling road... when I get motivated I'll drop it in there..
might have a Cortina engine fitting party ...anyone up for it...lol
