It is with deep regret that I find I have to offer my Beautiful panther Black Scorpio For sale
Ford scorpio Estate 24v
30,000miles only
MOT till August
Chrome 12 spokes with matching Continental tyres (I don't mean that they are chrome of course...just all the same!)
It is an early Ultima with a Facelift front grill and lights
There were no advisories on the last MOT
Just absolutely beautiful condition it has the odd blemish ...and I mean odd but only what might be commensurate with travelling 30k
I have replaced the front discs with Brembo drilled plated race discs + Ferodo DS2500 pads
rears also replaced with EBC plated slotted and drilled and STD Ford pads
It has the cloth interior which is as new
It does not have heated seats(doesn't need them) they are electrically operated, it does not have electricallyadjustable lights or washers std through out apart from the improvemnts made to the wheels and the brakes (1000)
The car is known to a few well known members, it really is quite a thing to see.
It is also 3000
Believe me it really is worth 3000
Which is less than I paid including improvements
pm me

Well, i've had a few viewers, I think they just want to see a sort of, nearly new, Scorpio to be honest, nothing that I'd call a genuine buyer, so I'll give it a few more weeks then I think I'll SORN it and cover it up.
Been driving it  all Winter but it's still only done 31k.

Sorry to hear you've had no takers. It looks brilliant in the pictures, but I think a lot of people who don't know how reliable and well made these cars are might simply be afraid of investing. We all know how so much better BMWs are than everything else on the road, don't we.
So we quietly relish having the last laugh whilst enjoying superb motoring.
 
My mate has a very smart XJR but will happily agree it needs constant attention to keep it behaving, and the ride is no better than what we enjoy. (His is 12 years old now, looks new, but is not like the older Series 2/3 XJs for those of you who may have had one of them).
I think the worst thing you can do is stop using yours, but I don't know your circumstances. The best thing would be to sell it to one of us enthusiasts, but that narrows the field right down, doesn't it! Hope something comes up for you.

Problee age, engine size and looks putting them off. Needs to be one of "us" otherwise they don't "get it". Grin
 
Hopefully you can keep it on SORN until someone genuine turns up?
