The Opel Kadett C Coupe

One of the best-looking mainstream Coupes of all time, in my opinion. The mini skirt certainly adds to the photo.

Fiesta Firefly : A Bright New Style Setter

The Fiesta is a good-looking and lively performer which has captivated enthusiasts throughout Europe.

Now Ford's Special Project engineers have taken a look at it with a view to adding even more personality and visual appeal, they've designed the Firefly!

Ford Fiesta Mk1 Firefly Special Edition Brochure

It's a Special Edition car with a real sporting appeal, good looks, low running costs and an attractive low initial price.

The Fiesta Firefly is very distinctive with a three-colour body side tape stripe and 4.5" body coloured wheels.

Choose a really dashing body colour from Strato Silver, Signal Red, Terracotta or Cordoba Beige.

The Firefly combines the zip of the 950 (40 BHP) or 1100 engines with the 'S' suspension to give a car that really handles well.

Sporty Performance; definitely unsporting price!

Call in at your Ford Dealer for a test drive and see what fun the Firefly can be.

From the moment you settle down in the 5 position adjustable seat and grasp the 4-spoke Ghia steering wheels you'll know it's the car for you.

Admire the styling inside with its colour-keyed 'Chevron' fabric trim and outside black finish Rocker panels, locks, handles and window surrounds.

Enjoy the sound of the Ford push button P21 radio, the convenience of the intermittent wipe/electric screen washers and passenger door mirror.

But most of all know that you're going to have a car which combines spirited performance with a low price.
