After an RX7 FD3S so the Probe is for sale.

--

I'm after £3500 ono.

Below is what will end up on ebay if it doesn't sell via forums in a couple of weeks or so.

UK peeps ring me on ************ between 6 and 10ish if you want to chat about it.

Cheers, Paul.



Ford Probe 24V, 1995 "N" reg. The car is in excellent condition for it's age and has been professionally modified to a high standard.

All body work was carried out by Clements Bodyshop in Ripley to an excellent standard. The spoiler, rear spats and sideskirts were bought from FX Designs in Canada. The front bumper is a unique combination of an original Ford Probe CW Style Bumper and the original plastic bumper. Clements decided that the CW bumper was not going to fit the car properly and have expertly blended the two together. The company did my previous Ford Probe and have had a car featured in car magazines.

Engine work has mostly been carried out either by myself or people well known in this country as being experts on the car. The engine has seen 187bhp under the previous owner but is currently making 175bhp, the lack of power believed to be due to the difference in exhaust systems between the cars.

I myself have been a member of the Ford Probe Owners Club from day one, I was on the original committee and am now a member of Autophoria and have owned a Ford Probe since 1999. The previous owner was also a committee member and now an Autophoria founder member, in fact we swapped cars and she now has my car.

Mechanically the car is sound with regular maintenance and oil changes carried out. Recently the car has only been driven once a week due to me moving house. It is fitted with a Toad Cat 2 alarm system and Sigma immobilisor. The interior is in good condition but the rear seats have been replaced with later models due to the foam disintegrating. It comes with original Ford mats. The car has no rear speakers but used to have 6x9s in and a pair can be bought cheaply. Comes with original jack and space saver spare wheel. It will also be supplied with a CD containing images from the previous owner and myself documenting various changes that have taken place.
