indeed it is - and I hope you are looking after it!

I'd be interested to know its history after Pat sold it (around September 2013 I think) and how it is getting on

Engine was replaced at 176,000, and I'm not entirely sure what failed, but think it was the vvt solenoid as that cam was knocked out of position. Replacement engine sourced from local scrapyard was at 111,000 when fitted.

Postby ROY 1.7 Thunder » Thu Jan 14, 2016 9:26 pm

Hi I have a mint condition Ford Puma Magnum Grey Reg FJ02 ETD. 79000 Miles No rust on rear wheel arch. I have just stripped down the rear of the car wax oyled and undersealed the rear arches and the underside of the car i was lucky as there was no rust. it has a full Ford service history and has never faild an MOT. Only issue with the car is the key fob keeps losing its code. the interior of the car is leather and mint condition, the carpet is dirt free. i was lucky when i bought the car (even though i felt it was over priced) that the previouse owners looked after the Puma and it was garaged most of its life. I love the Puma more than any car I have owned and I hope it will last me and any future owners for many more years to come.

I've got two in stock just now, going to stay as full cars, both Magnums.

Had two through the books in the past, also Magnum, both rear damage with crinkled boot floors.
