Today's thing rarely seen

Facelifted Mk1 (or Mk2 depending on how you name it) Fiesta.

In trivia news this was the first model available as an automatic. It used (in small numbers) a CVT which Ford shared with Fiat. It didn’t go well for either maker.


It was also the first Fiesta to get the option of a five speed manual and a diesel (yes, you could get both, the diesels were five speed only).

Power steering had to wait a while longer.
