You really to do need to come and see this car, it is quite simply stunning, and we would go as far to say probably the finest restoration we have ever seen. Restored by a Ford Marque specialist to a standard that is breath taking with such attention to ensure it is presented with all the right bits as it left the factory.

You could not buy and restore a Mexico for the asking price of this car, and certainly not to this standard. If you want the very best, then it is here now but not for long… more info at Manor Park Classics
