I picked another fiesta this weekend in hopes of getting mine back on the road. But after thinking about I have way too many projects and could really use some cash to finish a couple. Both are 1980 fiestas. One is a complete car, has rust in the rear wheel arches. Motor burns oil but runs. The other I stripped the interior. Has a roll cage, custom steering wheel and Honda Civic seats. The engine in this one has a knock in the bottom end I haven't investigated to find. Also has a xr2 head with hi lift springs and bike carbs and custom header. A big cam and HD clutch also. The later car has lots of work in it. Big brakes up front and stock fronts in the rear. My hopes were to take two and make one cause I haven't been able to get a title for the white one and the body is better on the other. A few spares are included like a trans and a cv. Make a offer I need them gone. Thanks

pinchvalve PA isn't that far. I could almost UPS them to you. Sine, Ive just about done all I could do with my fiesta, and it's still slower than a honda.

Holy E36 M3 that sounds like my old Fiesta. Pics! If it's mine I may be interested in rekindling that relationship

I doubt it's yours I pulled this one out of farmer's junk pile. I'll try to get some pics up, I haven't figured out how.

BPT....a turbo Mazda engine.

According to Retro Ford magazine and the internet, you can swap a Zetec engine into a Fiesta and if you prefer, you can swap a Escort 5 speed into a "stock" 1980 Fiesta....with a bit of fabrication.

Yea looked into that swap. But already had too much money tied up in this one. This thing does need more power right now. It's a tire fryer, needs better suspension and tires

Well I'v decided to part them out, It's all got to go. Just make a offer.

As much as I want to I think getting them to VA would be pretty cost prohibitive

You'd be surprised I shipped a transmission from my E30 to Texas for $70. And the price I'm willing to take on this parts it'd be worth it.

I've gotten several parts sold off already, The big item I have left is the euro XR2 head. It's got $450 in valve train, fresh guides and seals, ready to bolt on. I've got $1400+ in the head I'd start at a negotiable $700 for it.
