My New Project Car For The Wife

Hello everyone,

I'm new around here, but just thought I'd share

Well I just bought this about an hour ago. The guy I bought it from even used up his towing miles and towed it 80 miles back too my house...lol.

All for $1,000.00 bucks.

CD Silver W/Blue inserts 1 of 110 and only 121,000 miles on it.

Came with a new timing belt, cold air intake, new snow tires, and 75% tread summer tires. New stereo and brakepads too...lmao. It even has a trailer hitch.

Needs a clutch and a front bumper.

Still has a ford stamped front windshield as well...lol.

My wife loves it and is looking forward to me getting it fixed and ready for Focusfest...HA!!!

I WIN!!!

Here's some pics.

Now we have 4 focus's

Nice! Not a bad price at all you got there. With a little elbow grease it'll be back to new again!

Collecting Foci now eh?

Bumper will be hard to find, might have to use a different one for that.

Sounds like it's in good condition otherwise, starting off with a new clutch when it's done isn't all bad - you won't be wondering how long it will last!

good deal

Hey thanks guys for the comments! Found out today that it's #218 of 2,173 too.

We plan to drop about 2K in it to start with. There really isn't much to do to it. We're old fashioned so bling bling is not an option...lol. So far the clutch and bumper are the 2 biggest issues. The spare tire has never been used. Only thing it's missing is the battery cover, the original airbox stuff, and the hatch cover. I took the owners manual, spare tire, jack and put it in my red SVT because that was missing when I bought it...lol. Only thing I need now is the cargo net, floor mats, and hatch cover.

I'm having it towed to the shop to have the clutch done on Saturday. Also a tune up, oil change, radiator flush, checkup, etc. Paint and bumper fixes, then off to have it detailed.

Our 25TH wedding anniversary is about 2 weeks away and it would be a cool present for me...ummm...I mean her.

Here's a few more pics.

It's become a mid life obsession actually. All I need is a Blue one. Then I'm done...lol.

True story...

Bought the Silver 2006 ZX5 for the wife in 2008. Hated that thing and refused to drive it. POS I said.

Then when my 1995 Ford Escort got mounted like a dog in heat by a lady in a 1993 Mercedes Wagon I had to start the search for a new daily driver. Escort had 205,000 miles on it with the original clutch still in it. Just had put brand new 70K tires on that sumbitch too.

Never even knew what an "SVT" was until that day she killed my Escort. Started looking for a replacement and stumbled across the Red SVT at Spradley Barr. They wanted 11K for it and it only had 74,500 miles on it. Looked cool so I checked it out.

Offered 5500 cash and drove off with it. That included all of their fee's and BS as well.

Started wondering what "SVT" meant and found out how kinda sorta rare they were and then told the wife...

"I can't use this for a daily driver...I need another Focus".

So I bought the White 2001 ZX3 for $1,800.00. It has service records from the very first 3K oil change in 2001 and everything else for the last 13 years. You can barely see the oil on the dipstick...lol and I had to use 2 folders to put the service records in. Including recalls.

So now I'm thinking?..Hmmmm......all I need is a Blue one....Red, White, and Blue...why not?

While looking for a Blue one I stumbled across the Silver SVT.

Now I have 4 Focus's and still need a Blue one...
